: MediaTakeOut.com learned that yesterday, veteran NEW YORK rapper Timothy "Tim Dog" Blair died after suffering a seizure. Tim Dog, only 46 years old, struggled with a long bout with diabetes.
Tim is most noted for his "F*ck Compton" anthem towards Dr. Dre and N.W.A. during the height of the East Coast vs. West Coast rap beef. The song garnered several response tracks from DJ Quik, Compton's Most Wanted, and Dr. Dre. He has appeared on projects with the likes of KRS-One and The Ultramagnetic MCs.
Tim Dog was briefly in the news again last year when he was caught in a sting operation by "Dateline NBC", where he was set up for ALLEGEDLY participating in an online dating scam.
For black people, age 30 is the new age 60, cause a lot of black by age 30 got diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
The grave yards across america are full of 30 something and 40 something black people who died before their time.
DoctorT, I beg to differ. I hate when people make overgeneralizations, especially about black people. For years it's been known that yes we do have higher instances of high blood pressure and diabetes. But it's not only us. The entire country is unhealthy. As a whole, the US has the highest obesity rates. But I've noticed that more and more black people are getting educated and excercising and eating better. If we continue on this path our future will only be brighter and longer.
People are messed up for speaking badly of the dead. Unless he murdered everyone in your family and raped your grandmother, mom, and sisters you shouldn't be happy for his death and even then forgive and move on.
@ Lovesoundz - Ni99a you sound like a ho that Tim Dog didn't let suk his dik! Tim Dog is originally from Compton! Google it b*tchez!
One of the reasons why he wanted to diss Dr. Dre was because Dr. Dre wasn't a real gangsta but he was getting the attention as if he was.
I'm sure too mufuka that Tim would've whooped off on your internet tuff azz if you would've told him that to his face!
Coon azz ni99a!
That google sh*t is wrong! Tim Dog is from Compton. Tim Dogg later moved to NY before making those diss records.
It doesn't matter this ni99a had guts making those dis records. His career was forever done after that sh*t tho. Dr. Dre was definitely and still is the baddest producer we'll see in a long time.
@Maribrys + Wackacrakka, I'm with both of you.
LOVESOUNDZ and HUNHWHAT, shut the hell up, because if that big Black dude was alive and in your face, you would shrivel up like a cucumber in vinegar, C00N A55 NEGR0. Laughing at another Black man dying from something as serious as diabetes. Pray your children or your old A55 grandmother never get it.
Lol @ some of y'all. This nikka wasn't nothin to me. I dont give a fukk if he's alive or dead. The way y'all talk you would think I insulted the fat bytch that popped your ugly ass out. Who gives 2 shyts if he was black or not? This dude was a bytch azz nikka who's roasting in hell right now wishing he had lived a different life. And I sound like a "ho that Tim didnt let suck his dyck?" Y'all sound like a bunch of thirsty azz ho's that Tim DID let suck his dyck, and it was so good y'all wanted to crawl in his casket with him so you could keep gettin it. One more thing: nobody gives a fukk where you're from. Claiming your hood is the ultimate form of fukkery.
