"Dazz" is a hit song by R&B/funk band Brick. "Dazz" is a combination of disco, funk and jazz, hence the title, "Dazz," a combination denominator for "Disco Jazz."[1] Released in 1976 from their Good High album, it would become their biggest hit, spending four weeks at the top of the R&B singles chart and reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.[2] This song has been heavily sampled by hip-hop artists including MC Lyte in her "Cold Rock A Party" single, Ice Cube's "No Vaseline", Dana Dane "Cinderfella Dana Dane" (1987) and Snoop Dogg in his song "Snoopafella" (1999).[3]

Another popular 70s-era soul group, The Dazz Band, took their name from the song.[4]
