Doc Wily is the newest Hip Hop artist to emerge to the forefront from Atlanta’s MC roster. Doc’s musical roots began in as a DJ spinning for his classmates and local parties on the Southside of ATL. In college, he continued to DJ for the university radio station and joined with 2 other friends to form the group 285. Produced by Def Jam Producer Midnight Black, their first collective project sold 50,000+ independently upon its debut. They toured summers and opened for platinum artists Goodie Mob. After college, the members moved on to pursue solo projects.
Doc Wily’s record spinning and lyrical ability, fashion, and charisma makes him a great entertainer from radio to TV to film. Doc’s music has even been featured on the soundtrack of Morgan Freeman’s Guilty By Association. Traveling the country spinning and rapping in clubs, Doc felt compelled to record and release his own music. With great response and demand from his fans, Doc Wily will be releasing his anticipated mixtape, FRESH OUT THE LAB, with a lineup of producers like Nick Fury, V12 The Hitman of the Affiliates, Show Stopper, and young ATL producers Weeskraw and DJ Kool.
The newest single from the FOTL mixtape is “Look at The Boy”, produced Weeskraw. Weeskraw’s signature upbeat phrases, rhythmic bells, and colorful horns of “Look at the Boy” is mixed by OutKast’s very own Dj Swift. With a lyrical iambic delivery from Doc, this song has the right formula to be a favorite for listeners reminiscent of the 90‘s ATL sound. Doc Wily brings another level of showmanship into his performances by simultaneously rapping and spinning his own records. Combining the aesthetic ATL sound and current local culture into Authentic Hip Hop is Doc Wily’s movement. He wants to revitalize the reputation of Atlanta natives and the southern sound without the usual drugs and violent personas. As a DJ, Doc has the ear and connection to the fans to create music that is timeless and versatile, joining vibes from various regions to appeal to everyone worldwide.
“The track is incredible. This song should be HUGE. The lyrics and beat is a refreshing break from all the mundane "same-o same-o" copy-cat reproduction of many of today's artists. Doc Wily demonstrates that the ATL is truly the epicenter of today's hip hop world. His fresh style culminates the evolutin and revolution of our music. "Tennis Shoe Pimpin" is straight up old school dope.”

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?”
