There continues to be questions and concerns over whether or not late rapper Tim Dog is actually dead.
The Bronx-born hip-hop star, born Timothy Blair, supposedly passed away back in February due to complications from diabetes. But after a woman named Esther Pilgrim expressed to authorities that he could be faking his death to avoid paying her and other people more than $2 million that he owes in debts, more skepticism has arisen concerning Tim Dog’s whereabouts.
He really thinks he can outsmart everybody,” Pilgrim told WREG News last week. Pilgrim says Tim Dog swindled her via “a fictitious business deal.”
He was previously convicted of conning a Pilgrim back in 2011. He was sentenced to five years of probation and was forced to pay $19,000 in restitution. The rapper was caught via an undercover sting operation that was featured on NBC’s “Dateline.”
Now, a warrant has been issued for his arrest in Mississippi.
“There was nothing of what you would normally find. What city? Who found him? There was nothing with any type of concrete details,” Pilgrim also said, and sent a friend to find information on his death in Atlanta. “They weren’t able to find any record of his death.”
The rapper’s family is being asked to present official documentation of his death. Prosecutor Steven Jubera says that if Blair is proven to be alive, he’s going to jail.
“I need proof,” said Jubera.
