2PAC’s Double Album, ‘All Eyez on Me’ remains one of the best-selling rap records ever, having been certified diamond. The hugely popular album has also proved lucrative for frequent #2Pac collaborator #DazDillinger.
As #DJBooth points out, the West Coast veteran (Daz) shared on Instagram in June 2016 that he earns roughly $200,000 per quarter in publishing royalties from when his songs are played in commercials, on the radio, or used in film or television. Of that total, more than $80,000 was from tracks he produced on Tupac Shakur‘s All Eyez. This calculates to well over $300,000 annually.
#Dillinger produced five tracks on the album, including “Ambitionz Az a Ridah,” “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted,” “I Ain’t Mad at Cha,” “Skandalouz,” and “Got My Mind Made Up.” At the time, both 2Pac and Daz Dillinger were signed to Death Row Records, with #Daz serving as one of the label’s primary producers alongside Dr Dre.
