The D.O.C.- No One Can Do It Better

Long before Dr. Dre ushered Snoop into the rap game and Eminem’s antics were celebrated on wax, Dre had The D.O.C., a rapper by way of the Lone Star state. His 1989 debut, No One Can Do It Better was produced entirely by the aforementioned Doctor, and would set the precedence that was Doggystyle and The Slim Shady LP. Not only did No One Can Do It Better, contain impeccable beats but it also featured cleverly witty lyricism and delivery reminiscent of the East; in short ,he is a West Coast cat by way of the South with an East Coast appeal. Sadly, soon after his debut’s release, The D.O.C. was involved in an accident that cut off his vocal cords. Despite this permanent handicap The D.O.C still manages to keep his name afloat penning lyrics and contributing to The Chronic, Doggystyle and 2001 to name a few. On another note he also fathered Erykah Badu’s second child, Puma Rose. I think this speaks very highly of the general nature of this man considering Erykah’s choice of fathers 3 Stacks, Jay Electronica and the aforementioned The D.O.C. I ain’t gonna say no homo / You niggas know who I am/ Far from a faggot/ If not question your broad.
