(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
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.
