Hip-Hop Rumors: Was The Source Mag Tim Dog's Pawn?

I forgot that The Source Magazine was the entity that broke the Tim Dog story! Now, that the bottom is falling out from beneath that story, a lot of PURE CRAP is coming out. You know all the stories of faked death. Apparently, the magazine got a tip on the Dog’s death and ran with it without verifying the death with anybody credible. The Source has claimed that they have not fallen back off the news that they broke, but that a relaunch of the site killed all their old content. Hard to believe. If they did, certainly it would be imported at some time. BUT, The Source stands by their story, citing an unnamed family member:

“From the beginning, we just wanted a quiet thing. We didn’t want all this media attention. Me being his cousin, with Tim’s brother and sisters, I didn’t want to overstep my boundaries if they felt one way and then I felt another,” says Tim’s first cousin about revealing certain details regarding the reported death. “That’s their sibling. That’s their brother. For me to go against them, that’s causing strife between me and my family. I’ve went to them and tried to talk to them. As much as we don’t want to be in the media, silence is making more noise.”

“What’s going to happen after this is this prosecutor or this investigator obviously is not doing a good job because just like he wants us to prove that [Tim’s] dead, it’s his job to prove that he’s alive.”

Weird. What a strange stance for a family to take over a dead person. Wouldn’t they just produce the documents or the evidence since they don’t want all the press anyway.

Do you believe the The Source Magazine or The “Family” of Tim Dog?

They keep us talking, but if we stop talking about them then they should worry! -illseed.
