The rap game is a dog-eat-dog industry, and Daz Dillinger is rare breed that survives without question. Now, Tha Dogg Pound Gang veteran has recently announced his plans to release of his fourteenth independent solo album D.A.Z. for release next year.

Although Daz has revealed few details about the project, he did confirm that the 10-song album D.A.Z. will be a return to the classic West coast sound. He also added that the LP will be accompanied by a bonus DVD.

“This whole album is going to be all West coast beats…voice control, no yelling, smooth shit,” he said. “[The album is] for the real fans out there. Not you mother fucking haters out there talking shit on the blogs, suck a cock you bastards.” (

Earlier this year, Daz linked up with fellow Dogg Pound emcee Kurupt for their seventh group LP 100 Wayz on DPG Records/Priority. They also announced that they will release another DPG album in 2011 titled Westcoast Aftershocc.
