Reprinted from the August 1994 edition of The 411:
"Y'all ready for this?" With this question The D.O.C. began his platinum-selling debut album, No One Can Do It Better. What followed was 13 tracks of versatile hardcore lyrics and Dr. Dre production that made it hard to disagree with the album title. With the rapid-fire rhymes of "Whirlwind Pyramid" and "Portrait of a Masterpiece," the bass-heavy grooves of "The Formula" and "Let the Bass Go," and the lyrical flow of "Mind Blowin'" and "It's Funky Enough," The D.O.C. established himself as a lyricist and created an album that is still being played five years later without sounding outdated. To top it all of, the last track, "The Grand Finale," marks the last time Ice Cube performed on an album with N.W.A before leaving the group to go solo.
Unfortunately, The D.O.C.'s career was seemingly cut short by a tragic car accident that practically left him without a voice. However, he did not let this setback shut him down completely, and he continued to supply rhymes for N.W.A after the accident. When Dr. Dre left Ruthless Records, The D.O.C. went with him and convinced Dre to do a solo album, which became the multi-platinum The Chronic. In addition to writing for Dre, The D.O.C. has also contributed his writing and production skills to M.C. Breed's The New Breed and DFC's Things in Tha Hood. Although rumors of a comeback have been circulating since the accident, it has been reported recently that The D.O.C. will be featured with Dr. Dre and Snoop on a track off of the soundtrack of Oliver Stone's "Natural Born Killers." Regardless of whether he makes a comeback or not, The D.O.C. only needed one album to prove that No One Can Do It Better.
