After 8 years of taking the live comedy, film and television industry by storm, Doc Brown is getting back to his roots, returning to the world of real rap with an intoxicating new live show and an arsenal of future classics.

A full decade since his last serious release, the legendary London MC is back in the serious music game, doing what he does best. With killer lines, infectious hooks and barnstorming beats, Doc is sounding fresher and hungrier than ever, preparing to showcase songs from his highly anticipated forthcoming album, Stemma. No stranger to the live music scene, Doc has toured with De La Soul and Busta Rhymes, and was Mark Ronson’s rapper in his band set-up alongside Amy Winehouse from 2005-2007. Despite a long and wildly successful hiatus in film and television, a return to serious music has proved too much of a pull, as Doc himself says: “It’s the ultimate in unfinished business for me. Music was the dream when I was a kid. This is where I started."

“He's a total star... An utter joy" Time Out

"It will be a revelation to many just how good Doc Brown's rap project is. His lyrical dexterity, and deep subject matter stands alongside some of my favourite MCs. If you truly love rap music you will not ignore this." Nihal

"Good to have the Doc back after so long - ain't lost it at all and he's still got so much to say" Example
