The D.O.C.

The D.O.C.

Real Name:
Tracy Lynn Curry
Profile:
A West Coast hip hop artist.

Originally from Dallas, Texas, the D.O.C. began his career during the late 1980s as a member of Fila Fresh Crew. He released his first album as a solo artist after gaining the attention of the California-based producer Dr. Dre. In November of 1989, he suffered near-fatal injuries in an automobile accident that severed his vocal cords, which resulted in the loss of his voice. As a result, he began to collaborate with other artists as a songwriter and in other capacities. By 1995, he had regained some of his voice through speech therapy to restart his solo career, which culminated in the release of his second album.

If The D.O.C didn't get into that car accident, I reckon he could have been one of the greats like Slick Rick, Chuck D, Ice Cube, Big Daddy Kane, Rakim etc. His album No One Can Do It Better was one of the greatest albums on the West Coast in the 80's let alone 1989.

The DOC's accident and how it affected his vocal chords is one of the biggest tragedy's to our music. No One Can Do It Better is a masterpiece. I respect him for carrying on with music but he was pretty much impossible to listen to after that.
