As an artist signed to Death Row Records when Chronic 2000 was released, Long Beach, California rapper Daz Dillinger revealed that the compilation album was Suge Knight’s attempt at getting back at Dr. Dre.
Daz made the reveal during a newly-published interview with Vlad TV. He also revealed that during his time at Death Row Records, he wasn’t on cordial terms with anyone at the Suge Knight-led label.
“That was Suge Knight’s idea,” Daz said while speaking on Chronic 2000. “He was trying to get back at Dr. Dre…Then he came with the fake Snoop Dogg, the fake Tupac. I never fucked with none of those guys though. I used to be in and out. Getting money and get the fuck up out of there. I don’t fuck with none of you punks.”
Daz Dillinger also spoke on fellow rapper, Crooked I during his interview with Vlad TV. Like Daz, Crooked I was also signed to Death Row Records at one point in his career.
According to Daz, it was his desire to leave Death Row and Crooked I’s decision to stay, that caused a rift between the two artists.
“Crooked I was over there,” he said. “And then when I was leaving, he wanted to stay. And that’s when we had our funk and our beef and stuff like that. I mean, it’s cool. We ain’t never talked or none of that other shit. He do his thang, I do my thang. But, you know, he cool.”
