The D.O.C.

Shortly after his debut album, No One Can Do It Better, was released in 1989, the D.O.C. suffered injuries to his vocal chords after a car accident crushed his larynx and turned his voice into a hoarse rasp, ending his rapping career. After that he stayed behind the scenes producing and ghostwriting for Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, who mentioned him in “What’s the Difference” from the 2001 album. “Back when Cube - was rollin wit Lorenzo in a Benzo, I was bangin' wit a gang of instrumentals, got the pens and pencils, got down to business; but sometimes the business end of this sh-- can turn your friends against you—but you was a real n----, I could sense it in you—I still remember the window of the car that you went through, that's f----- up—But I'll never forget the s--- we been through, and I'mma do whatever it takes to convince you, cuz you my n---- D.O.C.”
