Über The D.O.C.
A highly skilled emcee originally out of Texas, the D.O.C. was discovered by Dr. Dre, who produced an incredible '89 debut which was appropriately titled No One Can Do It Better. Armed with a vicious vocabulary and seriously hot Dre beats, the D.O.C. came with a slew of classic tracks including "The Formula," "Let The Bass Go," and "The Grand Finale," a sizzling posse cut with N.W.A. Unfortunately, shortly after the record came out, he was involved in a near-fatal car crash that severely damaged his vocal chords. He penned many of Dre's rhymes on The Chronic and appeared in the skit "$20 Sack Pyramid." The D.O.C. released a little-heard album in '96 called Heltah Skeltah, but came back strong with the compilation-style Deuce in 2002.
