Timothy “Tim Dog” Blair Dead at 46


Bronx rapper Tim Dog died earlier today from a seizure following a longstanding battle with diabetes reports the Source. He was 46.

Tim Dog—real name Timothy Blair—was known for his 1991 anthem “Fuck Compton,” a diss track directed towards Dr. Dre and N.W.A. The song provoked Dre to respond with a rebuttal of his own. It was also one of the memorable provocative tracks during the East Coast/West Coast rap tensions of the day.

Tim Dog had a debut album called Penicillin on Wax that helped him rose to early prominence in the 1990s. He went on to release three more solo albums, as well as two collaborative EPs when he formed Ultra where Kool Keith was one-half of the duo.

In 2011, Tim Dog pled guilty for swindling single women for thousands of dollars in an online dating scam caught by Dateline NBC. He was sentenced to five years’ probation.

XXL sends its condolences to the family and friends of Tim Dog.
