TiM DoG`s "PeNiCiLLiN On WaX" & "Do Or DiE"...

Ah YeS! I`ve got some Tim Dog for y`all, that`s right Mr. FuCK CoMPToN!!! Now for those of you that don`t know of Tim Dog I`ll drop some info` ya. His career started sometime in the mid 1980's when Tony Miller (older brother of Ced-Gee from Ultramagnetic MC`s) introduced him to Scott La Rock of Boogie Down Productions fame. Scott liked what he had seen in Tim Dog so he decided to take him in under his wing & the two of them began working on Tim`s career...

“Scott taught me the value of image & presentation...I learned that being the best is no way nearly important as being your best...”

Said Tim Dog as he reflected on his time spent with Scott. Since Scott La Rock was killed before anything really came to fruitation, Tim was back to square one. That`s when Patrick Miller (Ced-Gee`s younger Brother) stepped up & got Tim involved with Ced-Gee...

“Ced-Gee’s sharp wit & business savy is what prepared me for this business...”

Sometime in 1989 while Tim was working on his demo alongside Ced, he was presented with a great opportunity. Ced-Gee had asked Tim if he wanted to be on a single called "Chorus Line". Seeing it for the chance that it was Tim accepted & "Chorus Line" became Tim Dog`s debut...

During the early 1990's the West Coast scene was holdin` much of HiP HoP`s spotlight, which had a lot to do with N.W.A.`s platinum album "Straight Outta Compton". Many folkS say that this is the beginning of the whole 'Gangsta Rap' era, where katZ started rockin` the all black L.A. Raiders or L.A. Kings gear. Anyway, during this time a few New York rappers/ emcees resented the fact that the West Coast was getting so much shine, one of those New York rappers was Tim Dog. He was PiSS`d off & FRuSTRaTeD by the lack of interest that the record labels were showing to the East Coast artists. So he recorded his first single, the ground~breaking "Fuck Compton". The track was a vicious DiSS, targeting not only the city`s style of dress & musical output, but also some of it`s artists like Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre & MC Ren...

With all the attention that his first single was getting it only made sense to capitalize off of the buzz, so Tim Dog released his debut album "Penicillin On Wax" thru Ruff House Records in 1991. The album contains several DiSSeS aimed at both Compton artists (like N.W.A. & DJ Quik) & some of the more commercially successful artists at the time like Kwame & Kid-N-Play. He followed up his debut album with "Do Or Die" in 1993 & it was also released thru Ruff House Records. The focus of his second album shifted from BeeF`n with the West Coast, Tim was more concentrated on hardcore East Coast Rap...

So that is what I know of Tim Dog, I`m sure that there`s more to be told but that`s enough to get by....LoL, go `head & check out his music now!!!
