Daz Dillinger‘s ambitions of making a biopic, Dogg Pound 4 Life, just hit a major snag. Suge Knight and others, including record label eOne, want a piece of the action, but the rapper ain’t trying grease their palms.
The DPG vet who’s spearheading the movie broke the bad news to us at LAX. The casting and script are humming along, but Daz says the hangup is maybe the most important part — the music!
You can tell Daz is PISSED — he drops a few profanities — because several parties, including Suge, are trying to block him from using his music in the flick. He insists he owns the rights, and he’s ready to fight for them.
“Dogg Pound 4 Life” would pick up where “Straight Outta Compton” left off … focusing on the rise of Death Row Records, which got folded into eOne Music when Suge had to sell.
And you wonder why the Straight Outta Compton biopic took years to go from idea to reality?
