Daryl L. Anderson (born January 3, 1969), known professionally as DJ Daryl, is an American DJ, producer and songwriter from Oakland, California. He's one of the originators of the group 415 (Richie Rich and D-Loc) producing their first album ‘41Fivin’ who brought us hits like, Snitches & B****es, Groupie A** B****, and Sideshow.[1]

Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg and Warren G were inspired by '415' which led to the creation of their group '213.'[no citations needed here]

DJ Daryl produced 2Pac's unreleased album 'Troublesome 21' (2Pac's age at the time) the album was placed on hold due to the controversy surrounding Ice-T's "Cop Killer" song. Eventually, Interscope Records removed the songs (5 out of 14) and released them.[no citations needed here]
