The D.O.C. (Tracy Lynn Curry b. June 10, 1968) is an American rapper born in Houston, Texas who moved to Compton, California, to join the creative force behind the rap group N.W.A. Prior to his move, he was a member of the Fila Fresh Crew. The D.O.C released his first solo album (produced by Dr. Dre) in 1989 called 'No-One Can Do It Better'. This album is widely heralded as a classic. Sadly The D.O.C was involved in a car crash in the early 90's that left him with a crushed larynx. This put his career on hold for many years and he was unable to capitalise on the success of his first album.
