Daz Dillinger, one-half of Tha Dogg Pound, took to Instagram over the weekend and boasted about his production talents while throwing around his veteran status. The beat maker and MC also hinted at a new Dogg Pound album with his partner in rhyme Kurupt, and the pair were seen traveling together recently as well.
Daz posted up the following message to his Instagram on Sunday complete with an image of a 12-inch single for the track “Wanted Dead Or Alive” by 2Pac and Snoop Doggy Dogg from the Gridlock’d soundtrack:
“THIS YEAR IM BAC PRODUCING CANT LET THESE YOUNG NIGGA GET IT ALL I GOT SLAPPPERZ NEW DPG DOGGPOUND ALBUM.”
A look at Daz’s resume highlights that he has indeed put that work in on the production side, including handling the bulk of the beats on Tha Dogg Pound’s debut album, Dogg Food.
Fans of DPG will also remember that Daz produced a number of tracks on the first disc of 2Pac’s All Eyez On Me album under the name Dat Nigga Daz and has been quite prolific as a soloist with more than a dozen solo albums and an array of EPs, collaborative projects and mixtapes to his name. As Tha Dogg Pound, Daz and Kurupt have dropped seven studio albums together.
The duo’s newest project is tentatively titled Daz N Kurupt, Kurupt N Daz. The album name was teased at the top of the year via their Soundcloud page.
