Daz Writes Script For Film, Kurupt Starts New Label

Former Dogg Pound rapper Daz Dillinger, whose new album, "Retaliation, Revenge & Get Back," will enter next week's "Billboard" pop chart at number eight, has decided to branch out into films.

Daz is presently writing the script for a movie entitled, "What It Is," which is said to be a semi-autobiographical action film along the lines of Master P's "I'm 'Bout It."

Meanwhile, his one time Dogg Pound partner Kurupt has just signed a deal with A&M Records that establishes his own label and production company.

The label will be called ANTRA, which stands for "All New Talent Recording Artists," and its first release will be Kurupt's double album, "Kuruption," due out this summer.
