Fifteen years after the release of "The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time", Dr. Awkward re-enters the war ravaged world as Link, with "Boy Without a Fairy". The album is a 8 track walk through some of the themes present in the legendary game; sampling the songs that made one of the most memorable soundtracks to date. The production of the album is done by Shag, a man who shares Doc's love for the Nintendo 64 game and Hip Hop, made apparent by his Zelda Beat tapes.

He is an active member of the Canadian East Coast music scene through the release of his own albums, appearing as guest vocalist on a large number of recordings by other artists, hosting a weekly radio show, writing a weekly column, and producing beats for other musicians.
Lightning struck, thunder crashed, and TribeOne was born with a smile on his face and a rap in his heart. It took him a few years to figure out how to write and then many more years to figure out how to write a decent rap. But eventually he sorted it all out and his been at it ever since.
Years later, he continues doing the raps, nerdcore and otherwise. He’s a man of few words but many names, Dirty South Swamp Thing, Devil Rhymeosaur, Ol’ Dirty Batroc.
