Tim Dog dies aged 46 | News

SoulCulture is saddened to report the death of Bronx hailing rapper Tim Dog. The rapper died at age 46 just yesterday (14 February) reportedly after suffering a seizure. Tim had fought a lengthy battle with diabetes and it is believed to be one of the reasons for the seizure.

Tim Dog left an indelible mark on rap music, most notably due to his diss record aimed at N.W.A and quite specifically Dr. Dre with the track “F*ck Compton”. The record became a flash point for the dreaded East Coast vs. West Coast media/rap war which spawned the ever popular reply from Dre and Snoop “F*** Wit Dre Day”.

Tim also made noise with his début album Penicillin on Wax.

We offer our condolences to his family.
