Bio(Courtesy of myspace.com/timdogmuzic):

Rapper TIM DOG started his career in the mid 80’s when introduced to Scott La Rock of Boogie Down Productions. Scott took a liking to TIM DOG and started working on his solo career “Scott taught me the value of image and presentation. I learned that being the best is no way nearly as important as being your best”. Scott unfortunately met an untimely death, leaving TIM DOG with no outlet to express his talent. It was then, that Patrick Miller, the younger brother of Ced Gee, took him under his wings and got him involved with Ultramagnetcic MC’s. After being given the opportunity of performing on an Ultra single, TIM DOG found himself a demand in the music industry and an official Underground star. TIM DOG released the controversial single “Fuck Compton” on Ruff House Columbia/ Sony Records and achieved platinum status worldwide which launched his career and he soon began himself working alongside Hip Hop great such as KRS-1, Public Enemy, Ice Cube, Nice and Smooth, Ice T, SWV, Russell Simmons, Andre Harrell, Puff Daddy and many more. The Sony relationship was short lived after a dispute and TIM DOG made to the decision to leave the major label and pursue his career abroad. He found his way to London and he worked with Island Records recording Artist Apache Indian. Tim wrote and produced the first single “Make way for the Indian” which was very successful in the states giving Apache an open door to the US market. Then in ’96 Tim went to Los Angeles where he partnered with the then president of Black Music Sony Records Eddie Pugh who left the company due to a dispute with Tommy Motola to form “Our Turn Records” “OTR”. They had moderate success however releasing the major Hit Album “Big Time” by the group “Ultra” which consisted of TIM DOG and KOOL KEITH. Feeling unsatisfied at OTR, TIM DOG and Eddie parted ways and TIM DOG launched his own company RAP LEGACY ENTERTAINMENT (RAPLEGACY.COM) a brand that TIM DOG describes as “empowering Hip Hop through its artist” and where he released his own albums ‘BX WARRIOR’ and ‘IMMORTAL’ plus his GREATEST HITS BOXSET which is currently on sale around the world. 2009 seems to already be a busy year for TIM DOG, reuniting with fellow MC KOOL KEITH creating the supergroup PROJECT X and releasing the highly successful album “ICONIC which was promoted on a worldwide tour across Australia, Asia and US. Then releasing TIM DOG’s first studio solo album in over 3 years entitled ‘ICON’. From the Dog’s own words “This album is for the real Hip Hop Heads. Rap Legacy will do what most labels avoid, and that is to unite Hip Hop. HIP HOP WILL NEVER DIE!!” Stay tuned.
