Nearly thirty-years removed from Death Row’s heydey, it’s hard not to feel a welcome dose of nostalgia whenever one of the label’s alumni shares a behind-the-scenes look at the glory days. As it happens, Daz recently did exactly that, hitting up Instagram to plug his upcoming book with an interesting snapshot from a stacked studio session. In it, a youthful Daz sits by the mixing board while Dr. Dre, the man Xzibit once called The Chairman Of The Board, presides overhead. Beside him sits Kurupt, soaking in the creativity and no doubt marveling at how he managed to secure a spot on the roster — a process that, by his own admission, came with a high-stakes audition.
“WHEN U READ MY BOOK U KNOW & UNDERSTAND WHAT DOGG POUND 4 LIFE REALLY MEANT,” captions Daz, teasing a thorough examination of his tenure at Death Row records. For those interested in the label’s run, consider keeping a watchful eye on Daz’s movements, as it’s likely his book will feature plenty of insight into the beloved hip-hop empire.
