Eminem shows love to The D.O.C. & recite his lyrics in ‘The DOC’ documentary

Earlier this year it was announced that a documentary about legendary rapper The D.O.C. is premiering this summer, and it features heavyweight cast of Hip Hop stars like Eminem, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Xzibit, Too $hort, Kurupt, Daz Dillinger and more.

The documentary is set to premiere this week at the Tribeca Festival. The Dave Caplan-directed feature promises to tell the story of D.O.C. from his work in the Fila Fresh Crew to grappling with his legacy in the world of hip-hop.

In the clip shared by Slim Shady with the caption: “No one can do it better… me and THE DOC from his upcoming documentary,” Eminem offers some high praise for one of D.O.C.’s best solo songs and highlights how he really pioneered the West-Coast sound in the late ‘80s.

“He was doing things that nobody had done yet, like just lyrically “I would’ve been down with Rock but I’d be broke / By the punk, I’m openin’ up my trunk / To reveal, death, livin’ it up, my life is like a story / Yellin’ it, ‘cause nobody else is tellin’ it / Checkin’ it, always gettin’ paid ‘cause the rap is sort of a twist.” rapped Eminem the song titled “Mind Blowin'” from 1989 album No One Can Do It Better.

He then called over D.O.C. to hear him rap the verse, for a clarification on one of the track’s lines. “What the f**k… What was that right there?” he said after interrupting himself. “Never a segment in negative / ‘Cause I’m employin’ what you’ve been missin,’” he replied.

“How the f**k did you do that s**t, goddamn,” Em added.
