Rapper Tim Dog Dead at 46
Yesterday, after a long battle with diabetes, Rapper Tim Dog died from a seizure. He was 46.
Tim Dog was best known for the dis song “Fuck Compton”, a nasty aim at members of NWA. Back in the late 80’s, after the success of NWA’s Straight Outta Compton album, South Bronx’s Tim Dog wasn’t haven’t it. Due to lack of interest in East Coast rappers at the time, Tim Dog released his frustrations in his infamous song.
For years, I hadn’t seen or heard anything about Tim Dog (real name Tim Blair) since the 90’s. Yet, last year,I saw him in trouble on NBC Dateline. Mr. Fuck Compton was swindling women out of money.
As I found it funny, I never got into the Fuck Compton hype. Besides, I’m a Southerner. Me getting into that East Coast versus West Coast bullshit would have been out right ridiculous.
Still, I’m going to miss Tim Dog. May he rest in peace.
