New York rap veteran Timothy "Tim Dog" Blair reportedly passed away today (February 14) at the age of 46 from medical complications, according to reports.


Reports claim the "F*ck Compton" hitmaker lost a battle with diabetes on Valentine's Day.

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 Dog was present and active during a pivotal time in Hip Hop and unapolgetically made his mark. The Source would like to send our condolences to his family and friends. Rest In Peace. (The Source)
The rapper made a name for himself in the early 1990's with his infectious "F*ck Compton" diss record.

Veteran Bronx rapper Timothy Blair (a.k.a. Tim Dog) was found dead today at the age of 46. Tim Dog suffered from a seizure earlier today stemming from his long-time battle with diabetes. Tim Dog was best known in the early '90s when he was on the front lines of the East Coast/West Coast hip-hop battle. Blair released what is arguably his most famous song, the diss track "F*ck Compton," in 1991. R.I.P. Tim Dog. (Complex)

Along with sparking outbursts from West Coast icons like N.W.A. and DJ Quik, Dog released a couple albums in his prime.

Bronx rapper Tim Dog (born Tim Blair) fired fresh shots in the long-simmering hip-hop coastal war with his 1991 album Penicillin on Wax. His single "F--- Compton" triggered answers and comebacks in West and East Coast circles, and helped his album become an underground sensation, though not a major hit.

Tim Dog's alternately leering and fiery tone, confrontational diatribes, and cutting beats were even more vigorous on the follow-up, Do or Die, in 1993. (All Music)

Reports claim the rap veteran found himself in some legal trouble a couple years ago.
In 2011, Tim Dog pled guilty to grand larceny for swindling a woman out of $32,000 in an online dating scam, a scandal covered in a 2012 episode of Dateline NBC. He was sentenced to five years' probation. (Rolling Stone)

    Damn, diabetes? Anybody know what type of diabetes he had?

    I gotta be honest i have diabetes. I have the type 1 tho. That's the one that you get as a child that
    gets passed on to you. Funny, i just found out Phife Dawg got the exact same type, passed on from his moms. Found out my pops that i never really seen got it but oddly he got it after me can yall believe that? Fuck that nigga tho lol.

    As far as Tim Dog alot of people only remember him for the "Fuck Compton" song so i'm sure this will go under peoples radar.

    Actually, Type 2 Diabetes has a greater genetic component than Type 1 Diabetes. Not to say you can't inherit it, but you're much more likely to inherit Type 2 diabetes (the kind you get when your older)

    R.I.P. Yeah u gotta really adjust ur lifestyle when u got diabetes. My moms found out she had it the hard way. 6 yrs ago, she had passed out and wasn't breathin one time and she learned that she had type 2 diabetes after she came back from the ER. My Moms lost alot of weight after wards (25lbs) and stopped eatin alot of things wit high sugar content and she's in alot better shape than she use to be.

    Yeah i know but my point was that you only get Type 1 if it get passed on to you. Type 2 can be passed on to you as well but there's also a chance that you can get it by not "living right", so to speak.
