The DOC, who turns 41 today, burst onto the hip hop scene in 1989 with the Dr. Dre-produced album No One Can Do It Better. Allmusic gave it a 5 star rating and it looked like he was going to be a major rap superstar. But shortly after the album was released, he was involved in a car accident and shattered his larynx. His rap career was ruined, and he has since stayed behind the scenes, ghostwriting songs for Dr. Dre. Here is an interview done with the DOC a few months ago.
