Rapper Tim Dog Dead From Seizure


(AllHipHop News) Bronx, New York rapper Tim Dog has died from a seizure according to numerous reports.

The rapper, born Timothy Blair, suffered from a seizure, from complications associated with diabetes, according to The Source.

Tim Dog, 46, recorded early tracks with legendary rap collective Ultramagnetic MC’s, but he was best known for his debut album Penicillin on Wax, which contained the diss song “F**k Compton.”

In later years, Tim Dog recorded with Kool Keith in the group Ultra with Kool Keith.

Tim Dog ran afoul of the law in 2011 and was charged with grand larceny, after scamming a woman out of over $30,000.
