Hailing from Fort Worth, Texas, Erotic D. got his start at producing in 1991 putting out "You Must Be Jealous" and "Flowin' With the Rhythm" with the DFW Posse
for the Dr. Rock
/Fela Fresh Crew
album Taking Charge
. Soon Erotic became associated with the upcoming Death Row Records (2)
label and found common ground with another Texas label-mate The D.O.C. Aside from producing, Erotic also rapped in the short-lived rap group titled Life After Death. Erotic D split from the label with The D.O.C.
after it became apparent that the attention of artists such as Dr. Dre
, Snoop Dogg
, and Tha Dogg Pound
were leaving their talents in the shadows. The two resurfaced in Atlanta, Georgia where they released The D.O.C.'s ill-fated second solo album titled Helter Skelter
in 1996 which featured the rapper's raspy damaged vocals still impaired from his car accident that damaged his vocal chords. Shortly afterwards, Erotic formed his own independent label called E-World Entertainment where he helped put out local Texas urban acts as well as his own solo album entitled Beyond 2000. Erotic D teamed up with The D.O.C. once again in 2003 on the album Deuce. Jamal (2)
and MC Breed
have also enlisted in Erotic's production help in the 90's.
