Docman - (@Docman)


On, November 5, 1993, Maurice “Docman” Robinson was born in Yuma, AZ. Docman didn’t start rapping in 2007. His journey started back in 2004 when his cousin was killed. Before his cousin’s demise, LG would freestyle on the corners of New York while he sold drugs. Docman, being around him all the time, was amazed by the love he was getting off of making words rhyme. While his cousin was on his death bed, he told Docman to “never let anyone get in between him and success.” Docman says, “I rap because it helps me connect with him.”
