Tim Dog, RIP

by Fred Pessaro

Tim Dog

In a time when all eyes were west, transfixed on Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Eazy E and their crew NWA, a Bronx MC had the balls to scream what a legion of New York MCs wanted to: “Fuck Compton.” That MC, Tim Dog, passed away at age 46 from a seizure brought on by his longtime battle with diabetes.

Tim Dog was primarily a solo artist and released a few albums besides the killer debut Penicillin on Wax. Later on, the Bronx MC even collaborated with Kool Keith as a member of Ultra and then again as a member of Project X. Those groups released one LP each.

RIP Tim Dog. Though you were nailed on a dating scam by Dateline NBC, you’ll always be remembered for that scathing diss track and the accompanying album Penicillin on Wax but, more importantly, your contribution to the hip hop culture as a whole.
