Real Name:

Profile:
The Fila Fresh Crew is a West coast rap group orignally based in Dallas, Texas and consisted of Fresh K, Dr. Rock and The D.O.C. (known as Doc-T at the time). Dr. Rock's association with Dr. Dre during his stint as a DJ for the World Class Wreckin' Cru helped land the Fila Fresh Crew a spot on the N.W.A. and the Posse compilation in 1987. A year later the trio released minor material through Macola Records even though the group broke up by 1988. Doc-T changed his name to The D.O.C. and became a valuable contributor to the Eazy-E debut album and the newly formed gangsta rap group N.W.A., acting as a writer to many track with Ruthless Records (and later Death Row Records). However The D.O.C. is most remembered for his 1989 debut album featuring the hit single "It's Funky Enough". During the same time, Dr. Rock continued to re-release his former group's works and launched a solo album of his own in 1991 under the pseudonym Fela Fresh Crew.

As FFC became obscure Macola fodder, NWA changed rap music forever, and The DOC made his wise choice to leave Dr. Rock's side and partner with Dr. Dre. The following are some selected lyrics from the Dr. Dre produced D.O.C. song "Mind Blowin'" that puts some perspective on the situation in 1989:

The D.O.C. is dope/ I would've been down with 'Rock' but I'd be broke...

To deliver to you in order, just call it a system/ A brother tried to play me like a kid so I dismissed him/ And now I'm ruthless by keeping the crowd grooving/ It gets so rowdy that you swear your chair's moving...

Did it, cause it's like I had to make one/ Better than the last one, cause a mistake none/ But something new was needed in the mix to/ Make it as lethal...

So I asked the Dr. D-R-E could he comply/ Looking at me with a grin, he shrugged his head and said "Why/ would you ask me a question, knowing you knew the answer?"...

The D.O.C. is looking for a dope beat to lay in something melodic/ After 30 seconds Dre looked up and said "I got it"...
