Throwback Thursday: Daz Dillinger (1995 – 2003)
After making the announcement of a new album in the works, we are looking back at some Daz Dillinger tracks for this week’s Throwback Thursday.
We are mostly looking back at some of his solo work and one track with fellow Dogg Pound member Kurupt.
The first track from our selected five is “Gang Bangin’ Ass Criminal” from his 1998 solo-debut album “Retaliation, Revenge and Get Back“. “Gang Bangin’ Ass Criminal” features appearances from Kurupt, Soopafly, Tray Deee, Bad Azz and Techniec. The track was produced by Daz himself.
The second track from our selected five is “U Ain’t Shit” which features Bad Azz. This track has more than a few shots fired towards Death Row and anyone else connected to the record label, including fellow Dogg Pound member Kurupt, who he was beefing with at the time. Ja Rule also gets a special mention on here too. “U Ain’t Shit” is from the 2003 album “DPGC: U Know What I’m Throwin’ Up”
Track three is “Bitch Bitch Bitch Make Me Rich” from Daz’s 2002 album “This Is The Life I Lead“. The track features Oakland legend Too Short and the song contains a few noteable lines such as:
That I’d give you dick for free? (ha ha)/
Now shut the fuck up bitch, and gobble a dick/
And paid pimpin’, always out from under me/
The fourth track is “Smooth” from Tha Dogg Pound‘s classic 1995 album “Dogg Food“. “Smooth” was produced by DJ Pooh and features an appearance from Snoop Dogg.
The final track is “In California” from Daz’s solo-debut “Retaliation, Revenge and Get Back“. This track was a single for the 1998 album and featured singer Val Young a.k.a “Lady V“. “In California” was produced by Soopafly.
Daz’s music is available on Amazon, including his recent collaboration album with fellow LA artist WC titled “West Coast Gangsta Sh*t“.
