Daz Dillinger recently announced his retirement from rap, after over 30 years in the game. It’s rare, especially today, that a member of the hip-hop community is actually able to retire.
Dillinger announced his retirement in an Instagram post with a image that reads: “The legend had officially retired since 2022 Not my problem anymore.”
In the caption, Dillinger explained why he was deciding to retire from rap, citing that it was not fun anymore. “IM DONE RAPPIN CUZ ITS OVER FOR ME 🔥IT WAS NICE WHEN IT WAS🔥 BUT ITS NOT FUN NO MORE. SO IMA CALL IT QUITS 💯👍🏿🌹THIS MY LAST POST.”
While he might have retired it surely wasn’t his last Instagram post. Dillinger took to IG to share that he recently purchased a new place in Atlanta that will serve as the home for the Dogg Pound Sound Stage Studios.
In a couple of posts, Daz shared videos of the new home of the Dogg Pound Stage Studios. In the first post, he wrote the caption “I 💙 THE RETIREMENT LIFE.

Daz has enjoyed a fruitful career, having been signed to Death Row during its peak, and was a member of the Dogg Pound. He contributed to classic albums like Dr. Dre’s The Chronic and Snoop’s Doggystyle, and solidified his production skills on 2Pac’s All Eyez On Me. He left Death Row in 2000, and still released music under his own label.
