Tim Dog died today after suffering a seizure believed to be related to his battle with diabetes. He was 46.

Tim came to prominence in the early 90’s with his single “Fuck Compton,” an angry response to the growing dominance of West Coast hip-hop taken from his debut album, 1991’s Penicillin On Wax. The song took shots at the members of NWA, and even elicited a response from Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg on the song “Dre Day.”  “Fuck Compton” is regularly included on lists of the greatest diss records of all time.

Tim Dog was in the news again in 2012 thanks to an appearance on Dateline NBC in an exposé regarding an online dating scam in which he was involved.
