Daz Dillinger Issues IG PSA: “This Legend Has Officially Retired”



Daz Dillinger began his rap career at the age of 19 with Death Row Records. Daz, Snoop Dogg’s cousin, helped usher in the ’90s West Coast gangster rap era and is an indelible part of Hip Hop history.

But, after eight albums with Tha Dogg Pound, including the group’s 1995 debut Dogg Food, an amazing 19 solo ventures, and over five million records sold, the 49-year-old MC is hanging up the mic.

On Saturday (June 25), Daz posted an Instagram PSA that began with, “This Legend Has Officially Retired Since 2022. Not My Problem Anymore.” He added in the caption, “IM DONE RAPPIN CUZ ITS OVER FOR ME. IT WAS NICE WHEN IT WAS [FIRE] BUT ITS NOT FUN NO MORE. SO IMA CALL IT QUITS. THIS MY LAST POST.”

Two days later, Daz Dillinger did post again but not about his rapping future (or lack thereof). Instead, he announced he was opening a new studio in Atlanta called Dogg Pound Sound Studios with an Instagram post that read, “I [LOVE} THE RETIREMENT LIFE. CUZ WHEN U SELF MADE YOU CAN DO ANYTHING. SHOUT TO MY BIGG CUZZN @biggg_jeff THE COLONEL STAY TUNE MORE TO COME FROM.”
