The D.O.C. Facts
- The D.O.C. had started his career in the music industry as a teenager when he had become a member of the hip-hop trio Fila Fresh Crew that had originated in Dallas. During this time, he used to perform under the stage name ‘Doc-T’.

- The name of his 2nd studio album, tilted Helter Skelter (1996), was a reference to American criminal Charles Manson’s idea that the iconic English rock band The Beatles‘ 1968 song Helter Skelter was a coded prophecy of an apocalyptic war in which racist and non-racist white people would be maneuvered into virtually exterminating each other over the historical treatment of black people.
