iTunes Editors’ Notes

The story of the D.O.C. is one of hip-hop's great tragedies. Originally from Texas, he was down with the Fila Fresh Crew, and appeared on N.W.A and the Posse. Befriending Dr. Dre in the late ‘80s, he released his boldly titled debut album in 1989. Produced entirely by Dre, and recorded around the same time as Straight Outta Compton, No One Can Do It Better was an instant classic, absolutely loaded with dizzyingly intricate (but decidedly un-gangsta) lyricism and furiously rugged beat work. It also spawned runaway hits like "The Formula," and "It's Funky Enough." Shortly after receiving a gold plaque, the D.O.C. totaled his car and crushed his larynx, taking away the voice that was just about to make him a superstar. He went on to ghostwrite for Dre for many years, contributed heavily to The Chronic, and acted as mentor for a young Snoop Dogg. He eventually released two more albums over the years, though neither one made much noise. Regardless, No One remains an undeniably essential piece of rap music, as crucial today as it was 20 years ago.

(Portrait of a) Master Piece

When listening to this album, you have to remember that it's The D.O.C.'s only album. It's heartbreaking to think of his potential; I mean, if his first album was this good, imagine how great he could have become in time? It's a shame his larynx was crushed, I mean of all the things to have injured it had to be the ONE thing essential to rapping; his voice. But this aside, this really is a phenomenal album, and his lyrical skill really shines. I would say that every track is worth buying, though my favorites are: -- It's Funky Enough: great beat + great hook + D.O.C. = great single -- The Formula: this is one of my favorite hip/hop songs of all time, the smooth beat blends perfectly with D.O.C.'s rapid yet crisp flow. My favorite song on the album by a long shot. -- The Grand Finale: this is a must-buy for any NWA fan who wants even more material, as it features Ice Cube, Eazy-E, MC Ren, Dr. Dre and the D.O.C. all on one track. Grand finale indeed.

D.O.C

Imagine the collabo's The D.O.C and Snoop,. or Em, or anyone really because This guy would raise the the song to Artistic levels. Dr.Dre's best effort by far. The Chronic pales, as do all the other efforts he's produced. Easily one of the best hip-hop/rap albums ever made. Do yourself a favor and buy this album now.
