Ashton Travis signing to Def Jam was announced on the track Death Row of the Undisputed Album. In the song's music video, Travis is pursued through amber-colored night streets by police as surreal visions flash. An elderly, glamorous woman, a gangland shooting, and a pencil-mustached gentleman in a strip club all appear in contrasting scenes.

Death Row' is all about someone’s will to achieve, accomplish, or even gain something.I

made the song at one of my lowest points in life. I

was so hungry and so determined to achieve what I wanted that I was willing to put my life on the line. Most

people feel like they’re in “do or die” situations and I felt like mine was worse. It

was Death Row - a place where people don’t even have a choice. So

when it came to my passion, my career, I knew I would either achieve everything I set out for or die trying — despite my situation at the time.
