One of the key members of the mid-'90s Death Row Records empire, producer/rapper Daz Dillinger worked alongside some of the West Coast's best rappers. His contributions to Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle album as a rapper quickly established him as an up-and-coming West Coast talent. And when his production helped make 2Pac's All Eyez on Me a success, he was chosen to be Dr. Dre's successor for the production of Snoop's Tha Doggfather album.
During the late '90s, he continued his efforts as a prolific producer and saw his solo album for Death Row, Retaliation, Revenge & Get Back, released in 1998. In 2000, Dillinger released his second album, R.A.W., on his own Dogg Pound Records label and has ever since been steadily releasing new projects and gaining a multitude of production credits.
