UTFO's Doc Ice Preps New Album


(AllHipHop News) Rap veteran Doc Ice of legendary Hip-Hop group U.T.F.O. is planning to release a new solo album.

Doc Ice landed in the Hip-Hop history books when he co-wrote the classic single “Roxanne, Roxanne.”

In 2012, the rapper will drop The Doctor Will See You Now, his third official solo album.

“I’ve heard many people say that we are in the day of the singles, and I feel they say that because they’re incapable of making an album that would keep the consumer happy,” Doc Ice told AllHipHop.com.

“I decided to drop this album to show that albums are relevant and they give the listening audience more of a commitment from the artist,” Doc Ice
said.

Doc Ice rose to fame with the song “Roxanne, Roxanne,” which was released on Select Records in 1984 and started the “Roxanne Wars” which produced over 20 answer records.

The group released their self titled debut the following year, which contained classic Hip-Hop tracks like “Beats and Rhymes,” “Lisa Lipps,” and the R&B hit single “Fairytale Lover.”

Doc is already promoting The Doctor Will See You Now’s first single “The Come Back,” as well as the album’s second release, “They’ll Never Be,” which features R&B veterans Full Force.

The Doctor Will See You Now is due in stores in early 2012.

  • MsHipHopCulture

    I love it. I respect the artists that helped pave the way & opened MANY doors for hiphop to even be where it is today. I love the song also.  There is more to hip hop than, drugs, bling, sex and negativity. It’s refreshing to be able to sit back listen to lyrics and be relaxed again.  Now, we have an option.

  • MsHipHopCulture

    Also, we who love good music and artistry have to take the good comments with the bad and most of all the ignorant. 

  • tdub_613

    Not only are you a true legend, you are a genuine person! Your music is the music I know and love. Keep up the GREAT WORK don’t stop doing what you do and mos def don’t stop being YOU! I wish you much success on the new album you truly deserve ALL OF IT! I love you and I mean I it from the BOTTOM OF MY HEART!!!!!!!! Love Tracey!

  • The time has come for REAL music to emerge back on the scene and who better to bring it to the scene than Hip Hop royalty.  You are going to set the world on fire with this project.  I hope this will be the beginning and make others see that real music has to come back and others will follow suit.  Thank you for bringing quality music back to us.

  • ALIVE & WELL!
    IN STORES NOW!

  • Wadup fam-o,real talk they no nothing about what it takes to maintain album full of great music because they never had to do it.Of course I can’t wait for the album to drop.Yes I’ll be one the first to put it in the mix show…wait I already have LOL!! Lets make this year epic for THE LEGENDS!! 
    Hit u and see you soon son…we WINNING 2012. Hey Doc…”They’ll never be…..        

  • Sounds like a winner to me!  It’ll be great to hear the new CD and see what Hip Hop sounds like from a legend that’s been through the trenches.

    “I’ve heard many people say that we are in the day of the singles, and I feel they say that because they’re incapable of making an album that would keep the consumer happy.
    I decided to drop this album to show that albums are relevant and they give the listening audience more of a commitment from the artist.”

    Very wise words from a very wise player in the world of hip-hop for over 25 years.  How many albums have we bought that have 1-2 legitimate songs, songs that deserve more than 1 listen?  Very few.  It’s time for the consumer to expect MORE from the artists today, to hold them accountable to a higher standard.  I remember a day when every song was a piece of the puzzle that was the message of that record.  Now albums do not stand on their own, with no cohesiveness.  Look at PE’s “Yo, Bum Rush The Show,” or Brand Nubian’s “One For All.”  Every song stood on its own.  Let’s pray this is a step backwards towards a greater, stronger, more classic hip-hop we all know and miss terribly. 

  • Doc bring it back Brooklyn style…. I definitely have your back….. Flatbush all day!!!

  • ROCK IT OUT DOC. ICE ! THIS IS NICE !

  • 1Suniula_Daniels1

  • Just when I was about to give up on hip hop, Doc Ice returns to the mic. I’m so happy that the pioneer has stepped up to the plate to provide us with a variety…something lacking in today’s hip hop market (might I add). I’m loving what I’m hearing and can’t wait for the masterpiece to drop. Ladies, if you thought chivalry was dead, “They’ll never be” is pure fiya! Doc and Full Force put it down with that rich soulful heartfelt rhyme complimented with those smooth melodic voices. Lord!  Now this is a romantic classic that will be around for years to come. All of us ladies are ready Doc to see you now!

  • I know the Doctor personally, and I am too excited about his new album because I know that it will exhibit the essence of what Hip Hop truly is…So many rappers of today have taken Hip Hop out of context and incorporated a “ganster and exploiting women” mentality into Hip Hop. Not good.  Hip Hop is fun, exciting, and originated from a place of peace, not a place of self destruction.  There are still those who hold true to the Hip Hop origin, and keep the Hip Hop genre fresh, and fun.  The Doctor will no doubt contribute the same level of creativity, and professionalism to the Hip Hop world.  Big Ups to the Doctor.  The Doctor is definately IN!!! I look forward to his crafty, and innovative style of rapping, writing, and composing. Just when I started feeling ill over this new generation of Hip Hop…HERE COMES THE DOCTOR WITH THE CURE FOR THE HIP HOP BLUES!!!

  • tdub_613

    Hmmm what can I say??? A whole lot LOL…Fam I am sooo proud of you keep up the EXCELLENT WORK!  This is YOUR YEAR! You never cease to amaze me, not only as a child fan but also as a grown woman who has so much love for you. You are as real as they come and I am proud to say that I am personally a FRIEND of yours. Keep up the great work. You are doing things that most can’t and won’t. We both know this but my children ages 14 and 9 listens to and loves the Doc and not just your music now but ALL of your music. If there is ANYTHING I can do to help you along this journey you know how to reach me. The words are REAL! Love you fam….Tracey W!

  • Hip Hop at it’s Best! I really LOVE this article. Very well written. Doc Ice is back and I can’t wait until his album drops!

  • milla1968

    hey

  • milla1968

    Doc Ice, what more can you see about this living hip hop legend. I see a few stupid comments below. We are the only culture that doesn’t respect our hip hop legends. Doc sounds better than 90 % of the hip hop artist now. You can break down every category of hip hop….and Doc ice has a hand in starting it. Singing….dancing…different languages…putting female rappers in the game…hip hop battles. Doc is the truth, his name is in the history books, he is a legendary artist and a even better person. If you really claim to love your culture , you will go out and support THE DOCTOR WILL SEE YOU NOW…when it drops this year! Much love and Respect Doc!!!

  • SweetsSpot

    YAAAAAY!!!! This is a MUCH anticipated album that DOC is blessing us with. I am super excite about getting hip hop back to where it needs to be. About enjoying the music and having fun…and this is definitely the guy to do it. His passion and love for this culture comes through his lyrics. I hope the world is ready because “THE DOCTOR IS READY TO SEE YOU NOW”!!!!! I support this album 100%. Thank you Doc!!!

  • tdub_613

    Heeeeyyyy Fam just stopping by to show some love! I am soooo ready for your album to take off! Well actually I am ready to be in the that video you promised me a few years back LOL….Keep up the great work, you know you have my support 150%…… LOVE YOU BUNCHES…..Tracey W.
