In the process of completing his first solo release "New Hyghts EP", Maurice "Docman" Robinson is bringing back the art of storytelling. With his heart felt drama of his life in QueensBridge, NY, to his successes now as an owner of his own label. His story is one that has to be told, and in a bright light, could help a lot of other people get through the day.
Docman had a not-so-easy life coming up. Born in Yuma, AZ, at the age of 2, he and his mother moved to Long Island, NY. Docman attended Public School 111 until 6th grade. While in New York, Docman adopted the love of music from his late cousin Lenard Gipson. In a place where drugs and violence swept the streets, music was the one thing that kept Docman on the right path. After the passing of his cousin, Docman and his family left New York. Since 2007, Docman has been living in Houston, TX.
While attending Thompson Intermediate, Docman met his group now known today as Empier Entertainment. In 2010, Docman joined a musical club at his High School called "The Song Writers Project". The Song Writers Project opened up his mind to other genres; in-turn made Docman's lyrics more story-based and compelling. Having been inspired by the works of Mos Def and Common, Docman has taken a different approach to his lyrics and song development. Everything he does has a purpose.
Docman has worked on numerous projects that have been hosted by Coast 2 Coast, Dj Green Lantern, and Big Sean. He has 4 videos and music on iTunes. He is currently the owner of Empier Entertainment and spokesperson for Hopper.
