D.O.E. is an American rapper, who was born in Northside, Queens. His name is short for "Dominate Over Everyone". Timbaland signed the rapper to his first record label Beat Club Records. When Beat Club folded, D.O.E. returned to the mixtape circuit with releases entitled The Black Ass Album (after Jay-Z's The Black Album), and The Mascarade (again spoofing 50 Cent). Timbaland took D.O.E to his next label, Mosley Music Group in 2006, after Beat Club folded under the weight of the artists on the roster.
