“I [love] RETIREMENT LIFE. CUZ WHEN U SELF MADE YOU CAN DO ANYTHING,” he captioned the video from his newly acquired studio. “SHOUT TO MY BIGG CUZZN @biggg_jeff THE COLONEL STAY TUNED TO COME DAT NIGGA DAZ.”
If this is the end of Daz Dillinger’s rap career, he’s had a remarkable run. With Kurupt, as a duo Tha Dogg Pound, the two released their first double platinum album dog food in 1995 on Death Row Records and were frequently featured on albums by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and 2Pac. As a producer, Daz created hits like “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted” from “Pac”, “Ambitionz az a Ridah” and “I Ain’t Mad at Cha”. Daz has released nearly 20 solo projects and nearly 10 Dogg Pound albums, including last year’s DPG 4 Life.
