Given his exposure on MTV at the time and the amount of hype his first album was getting (NWA at their peak), I always felt that The D.O.C. was on the verge of super stardom (at least hip-hop superstardom) before the accident. Definitely a tragedy, for sure. People kind of forget about it because it was 1988...but there was huge momentum behind him.

so as a human tragedy it obviously doesn't compare, but with respect to
what hiphop lost...
I've been saying this for years..
I got laughed off the newsgroup about 5-7 years ago for suggesting that
he might've potentially been the GOAT, if not for the accident..
i don't think that's far fetched at all
