Nelly Dubs The D. O. C. Hip-Hop Largest of the "and If..."
Do your research.
The D. O. C. had his burgeoning rap career cut cruelly short in 1989, after a nearly fatal accident left him unable to speak. The Fila Fresh Crew member was forced to withdraw, leaving the Dr. Dre-produced no one Can Do It Better the only album in their catalog.
In a new Instagram video posted Friday (March 16), Nelly called Dallas MC of Hip-Hop's biggest "and if..."
"Listen, I know a lot of people have their own opinions on Hip hop, but the biggest what if in Hip-Hop has to be The D. O. C.," he said. "It has to be. The D. O. C. has to be the greatest what if in the history of Hip Hop. As if you know something about Hip Hop and the research ... I love all my young niggas. I don't knock y'all. I support all my young brothers and sisters, but the biggest what if has to be D. O. C.
"An album — that's all you have. An album. I would say the most important, but more important, at least they had two albums and that they all recognize him as one of the greatest, but the greatest what if is The D. O. C. black. Do your research."

The D. O. C., who appeared on the HBO series The Defiant Ones, he sought out the voice therapy in the 2009 and was able to talk.
After the release of Straight Outta Compton, he said that he had recorded new music but I was not ready to release anything yet.
