Being from the south, I can remember back in the 80's when NWA came on the scene. As a matter of fact "Straight Outta Compton" and "Ez-Duz-It" were my first purchases when it came to music. Just like everyone else, I had to have the Raiders cap and dickie pants. Then there was this new guy that linked up with them and his name was The D.O.C. At first alot of people thought that this was just another nickname for Dr. Dre, but once we heard him rap we knew it was someone totally different.

The D.O.C. dropped his first album "No One Can Do It Better" around 89-90 and came with the banger "It's Funky Enough", the album went platinum and he dropped a few more tracks from the album as well. While I was already a fan, I got even more excited when I found out that he was from Dallas, Texas. Of course with me being from the south, this had me working around with my chest out. A guy from the south had linked up with one of the biggest producers and biggest groups in the world.

Not long after he really started to blow, he got into a car accident and it was very serious, he messed up his vocal chords and we think his career was basically shot. While he dropped a few albums that never reached the successs of the first, he linked back up with Dr. Dre and did writing for him on his projects continued making money. Now imagine going into a pawn shop and seeing platinum plaques on a wall of this guy and NWA and Eazy-E and imagine what you would think.

That's the same thing that happened when a fan saw this and decided to go on Twitter and let it be known that this wasn't right. Well the message got to The D.O.C and below is the video courtesy of Fox 4 Dallas.
