Legendary Dallas Rapper D.O.C. Starts His Return To The Top Story By Dallas Observer


Wow when I woke up this morning & saw this DOPE Dallas Observer article by Ben Westhoff on DFW (Dallas Fort Worth) HipHop Legend Tracy Lynn Curry aka The D.O.C. it really made PiKy feel good and the reason being is 1. Im a strong advocate for DFW HipHop History being that im the one who started the DFW HipHop History Facebook Group, The DFW HipHop History Facebook Community Page, & The DFW HipHop History Youtube Channel with Marcellus Suber & Tahiti of AwkQuarius 2. On Monday August 1st 2011 I uploaded my new song & PiDEO entitled "DINNER" which i just so happen to pay homage to the Legendary DFW Rapper D.O.C so that leads me to believe that its time for The D.O.C. to get the respect he deserves for what he's contributed to HipHop music worldwide.

What the MCs who used his words admired about him was not just his rhymes, but his ability to mold ideas and fragments into memorable songs.

"He showed me how to take the greatness out of the words, and combine that into a verse, a hook, a bridge," Snoop told English radio personalityTim Westwood recently.
