Catchy beats and hard rhymes; both have been core staples of Hip-Hop since the culture’s inception. And while artists of today often circumvent this with gimmicks, an artist that combines the two cannot be denied. It’s a simple formula that is and will always be effective. Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Doc-La brings this formula to life. Being focused, driven and motivated are the key ingredients to his success.
