AUDIO: The D.O.C. Voice Returns (Listen Here)
You won’t believe what The D.O.C. announced on his Twitter profile. Yesterday afternoon D.O.C. took to Twitter to announce that he got his voice back. This is amazing considering he got in a near fatal car accident 25 years ago. In the time of the accident his vocal chords were crushed and that would lead to the end of his rap career. The last album released before his accident was ‘No One Can Do It Better’ which happened to be produced by billionaire rapper Dr.Dre. In one of his tweets he states that his voice came back about a year ago while he was locked up.
For those of you who don’t remember who he is I’ll give you a refresher D.O.C. whose real name is Tracy Lynn Curry was an American Rapper from Dallas, Texas. He had a solo career alongside his group performances with Fila Fresh Crew. Also he was a creative force behind N.W.A. co-writing many of their releases. On top of that D.O.C. also worked with Dr.Dre to produce two of his solo albums. Which lead him to premiere on Dr.Dre’s album The Chronic. The last album D.O.C. released before his accident which was in 1989 ‘No One Can Do It Better’ topped the charts at number one on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart for two weeks. Two songs from the album “It’s Funky Enough” and “D.O.C. & The Doctor” also made #1 on the Hot Rap Songs Chart. The album ended up going Platinum five years after its release. He released two more albums afterwards but his singing voice was just not the same.
D.O.C. was also immortalized in the new N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton which premiered August 14th. D.O.C. was portrayed by actor Marlon Yates, Jr.
It is great news to hear that The D.O.C. says that his voice is back to it’s full potential and we hope this means a new album release soon.
