After the release of his debut album, the career of Texas-born rapper the D.O.C.
was shattered by a car crash that almost took his life. Although he could no longer rap like he used to, his former producer Dr. Dre
featured the rapper on his groundbreaking album The Chronic
, which built on the foundation laid by the D.O.C.
's No One Can Do It Better
. He was also featured on Snoop Doggy Dogg
. The D.O.C.
returned in early 1996 with Helter Skelter
, his first album in nearly seven years. The album received mixed reviews and failed to earn a large audience, leaving the charts a few months after its release.
