The Mic Stalker circa. 1989 Doctor Ice is a rapper in the hip-hop world. He was with the group UTFO, most famous for their song "Roxanne, Roxanne". He is the younger brother of Jalil from the rap group Whodini.Doctor Ice had a stage persona known as the "Debonair Doc". [1] Doctor Ice influenced Hip-Hop dancing to a new form. His influence can be noted by the dance moves in videos done by artists such as Kid N Play, Scrap Lover and Scoop Lover (dancers for Big Daddy Kane) and G-Wiz and the late Trouble T-Roy (from Heavy D & The Boyz). The commercial world fashioned their dance moves after Micheal Jackson but the black community embraced Doc Ice because his dancing was reflective of the type of dance moves done at a house/block party or in the nightclub. He left UTFO in the late 80s before the group's breakup in 1991 to go on a solo career. His first album, The Mic Stalker in 1989, produced by R&B group Full Force, had the singles 'Word To The Wise','Love Jones', and 'Sue Me'. His second album, Rely On Self appeared in 1994.
