Daz Dillinger’s rap career saw a noteworthy run. Along with Kurupt, as the duo Tha Dogg Pound, the two released their double platinum debut album Dogg Food in 1995 on Death Row Records. They also frequently appeared on albums by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and 2Pac.

Daz created songs for ‘Pac like “2 of America’s Most Wanted,” “Ambitionz az a Ridah,” and “I Ain’t Mad at Cha” as a producer. Daz has put out roughly ten Dogg Pound albums and nearly twenty solo albums, including last year’s DPG 4 Life. Daz Dillinger has now decided to leave the rap game.

The Dogg Pound rapper announced his retirement on June 25. Daz took it to Instagram to share the news with his over 633,000 followers. The icon cited a lack of passion for the activity in which he formerly excelled as the reason for quitting rap.

The legend has officially retired. Not my problem anymore.

IM DONE RAPPIN CUZ ITS OVER FOR ME. IT WAS NICE WHEN IT WAS. BUT ITS NOT FUN NO MORE. SO IMA CALL IT QUITS. THIS MY LAST POST.

Several rappers sent Daz flowers in the post’s comments section. Mistah F.A.B. reacted to the news saying, “Icon forever with a rap or not.” M1 of dead prez chimed in saying, “I’m proud to have done a record with you Legend. Your work speaks for itself and for generations!”

West Coast rap veteran Celly Cel added, “Daz & Dogg Pound Legendary Status! You created the Death Row sound & helped 2pac make one of the dopest albums ever! Icons for life! Salute homie. We appreciate you & everything you did for the West Coast & the Music industry!

It seems like Daz Dillinger wants to take on more of a CEO position. He later revealed plans to build a studio in Atlanta, where he has been residing for a number of years. You can check out the posts below.
