“Hip Hop mourns its first loss of 2013, with the death of BX veteran rapper Timothy “Tim Dog” Blair today from a seizure following a long bout with diabetes. He was 46 years old.Tim is most noted for his “Fuck Compton” anthem, directed towards Dr. Dre and N.W.A.,which was possibly the catalyst of the “so-called” East Coast vs. West Coast rap rift. 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.Blair 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 swindling single women out of thousands on an online dating scam.” The Source
