Daz Dillinger's New Album To Come Equipped With Scale, Priced At $59.99

Tha Dogg Pound Gang vet offers fans a scale in addition to his fourteenth studio album, but with a hefty price.

Daz Dillinger is turning to the Web to push his upcoming album D.A.Z. However, Tha Dogg Pound member's latest scheme to promote his records may be considered either a suprisingly revolutionary take on offering consumer incentives, or a misguided and overpriced strategy for reinforcing his niche.

In addition to the CD, the album will come with a scale that can carry up to 500 grams and, as his promotional video brazenly suggests, can best be used to measure the weight of marijuana and other substances. The album-scale is available on Amazon for $59.99.

It is not clear if the album is available for pre-order only, as D.A.Z was scheduled for an April release.

    doesn't even measure .00 of a g for 60$ i'd buy a coke scale and the cd by itself with enough money left for a fat dub

  • Typhon X

    What's it matter? Most of ya'll who think its a bad idea will probably go to megaupload and find it to download for free. I say, if it works to sell records, get it in DAZ. Lord knows the game needs a make over.

    lol maybe i'd get it if it was kurupt

  • The Ice Cold Phenom

    Daz is an idiot if this is true. I'm sure he can find more constructive ways for promoting an album than providing a narcotics scale to consumers.

    • Tidomann

      @ the Ice Cold Fool look man daz ain't makin' records fo' girls or the cops...u think about the rest fool!!

    • EddieMurrrphy

      "Narcotics Scale" lol what a fag. tune in for fox news and the new criminal minds series. you old mustache having fifty something. or a fake intellect straight out of the stereotype textbook. either way i know its pretty damn dumb on Daz's part but you could have not said it more caucasian-analy-condescending sounding

  • John Stachowski

    Gives new meaning to using a CD as a weed plate. Really though, $60 bills. As long as you keep it clean and in your whip I can see the value in it. You messing with Mac Miller huh? Hmmm Be on the lookout for my first single featuring KILLAH PRIEST & TRAI KENNEDI droppin 4/20 ! www.killahpriest.com www.soundclick.com/DUS www.soundclick.com/TRAIKENNEDI Jersey all day. Slaughterhouse or HRSMN what's your take?

  • PeoplePlease

    Ignorant n-words strike again. Now how come no one accuses him of being in the illuminati for promoting stupidity? He'll be the same one hollering about the prison industrial complex... Hope he fails

    yall use your heads now,weed is legal in cali and 4 other states maybe 5 they will buy it

    • killa

      It aint legal but its been pretty much decriminalized. Its just an infraction charge now unless you've got a shitload on you. The average Joe can't walk around smoking it but even if it was legal, I doubt they'd be allowed to walk around smoking it.

    • CT ALL DAY

      Weed is not legal in Cali! Medical weed yes, with the proper license. The average Joe can't walk down the street smoking. This shit is stupid!

    • John Stachowski

      I hear that angle on things. Perhaps if it were priced a little more affordably and marketed much better he may have a shot.

  • Nico 3

    He'll sell more scales than CD's.

  • fossie

    YEEAAAHHHH ILOVE HIM LOL

  • EddieMurrrphy

    on top of the hilarious price, i do not trust that shit getting sent through the mail. i know its pretty much no damage when the batteries are out. but i think it could still get slopped around enough and left out in a cold truck for so many hours that it could get a little de-calibrated. i love you daz and 100 wayz banged fuck what everybody has to say. but this is ridiculous man

  • Velvet

    This guys fucked up, that advert is like a 90's throwback video. This is destined to flop!

    big dummy!! (fred samford voice)

  • BlueArmor

    Im not buying his shit at all I respect DAZ for being a vet, but this is a dumb ass move, I wouldn't want no feds knocking at my door because I bought a this nigga album

    • okthen

      LMAO! Thats so true. Buying this shit is like marking yourself to be monitored for selling drugs, You basically paying 60 dollars to snitch on yourself. Epic fail buy daz

  • Michael Zayas

    i do need a new scale,but wall mart got em for $15

  • achpe2

    The dumbest sh** I have ever heard by far from an MC. Next, its going to be an MC give you a bag of weed, pills, or coke when you by their album, watch. Who are these A&Rs/business people he work with? He actually sat in a boardroom with someone pitched this idea to somebody and they went for it. Sad thing is that somebody going to buy the album and the scale. Note to DAZ - If you would put out an classic album people would fiend for it.

    WOW... C'Mon Bruh... a scale? Is he really trying to disguise this as an attempt to evoke the entrepreneurial spirit in today's youth a.k.a. making it easier for the Lil Hoodcats & Hoodrats to get their hustle on? G.T.F.O.H.W.T.B.S.!!! This is some B.S. to the highest degree. FIRST-OF-ALL... no one, i repeat NO ONE outside of Daz's immediately family will be willing to give this guy $59.99 if he was stuck in Las Vegas & needed enough gas money to make it to Mojave. Once again... GTFOHWTBS!!!! I'm not a psychic or tarot card reader but, I'm going to tell you exactly what WILL happen. Just like every other Hip-Hop album over the past 5 years, 2 - 3 weeks before the release of "D.A.Z." it will be leaked to the internet as a free download. As for those that need a scale, they'll more than likely be going to one of the several hundred local locations & purchase one for under the ridiculous price DAZ thinks he's worthy of. I wish the Brutha much luck with this one. But, it has #EpicFail written all over this one.
