Born in Liberia before moving to the US with his family because of the 14-year civil war in Liberia, DOC started his career as a dancer before switching to music.Since switching to music right after his graduations from high school, DOC has been working hard to gain prominence and shaping his sounds with conscious lyrics that matched with fans’ thirst for rap music.As an upcoming artist and owner of a record label, the rapper is worth keeping an eye on because of his lyrics that provide listeners with positive vibes.LIB Life: How long have you been doing music?Doc: I started recording professionally right after high school, which is some years ago. It started out just as a hobby when I was practicing rappers like Fresh Prince and LL Cool J’s songs in school, most especially during class time. However, the moment I turned my university note into a perfect rap lyric, I knew that I was destined to do music.LIB Life: When did you realize that music was going to be your career?DOC: I realized music was going to be my career when I was in college seeking a degree to become a doctor but could not concentrate on the lectures in classes because of music. I wrote songs in between classes instead of paying attention to my professors.LIB Life: How many days or months you took to make Mula Dance?DOC: It took me about 15-30 minutes to write the song, but a good month to complete the production process, mixing and mastering.LIB Life: What do you hope people will gain when playing your song?DOC: Honestly, I expect people to love the message, be encouraged, be inspired, be motivated, dance; and that’s the reason I always do my best to offer unique lyrics.LIB Life: Can you share any of your childhood memories with us?DOC: Oh yeah, during my childhood I used go play soccer soon the sun comes up, never care about even brushing my teeth. My mother used to call me ‘Dirty Joe’ because I hated haircuts or trying to look good. I’m my mother’s last child so I never did much housework.LIB Life: What are you hoping to accomplish next in your career?DOC: Right now I’m working on my upcoming album ‘Prescelto’ and a tour this December. I’m still building my name; therefore I will love to do more shows in and around my city.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
