Rapper wanted for allegedly faking his own death

Tim Dog-whom you might recall was the lyrical genius behind the incredibly NSFW 1991 dis track "F*** Compton"-is a wanted man, now that Hernando, Mississippi's prosecutor, Steven Jubera, has issued an arrested warrant for the rapper, alleging that he faked his own death to avoid scheduled debt repayment.

Tim Dog—whom you might recall as the lyrical genius behind the incredibly NSFW 1991 dis track "F*** Compton"—is a wanted man, now that Hernando, Mississippi's prosecutor, Steven Jubera, has issued an arrested warrant for the rapper, alleging that he faked his own death to avoid scheduled debt repayment.

"I need proof," Jubera told WREG. "I need a death certificate showing that he's dead because as far as I'm concerned, he's alive." Apparently, Jubera was swayed by the arguments of a woman named Esther Pilgrim, who, last week, accused Tim Dog (born Timothy Blair) of faking his own death to avoid paying her tens of thousands of dollars. Pilgrim was one of many women the rapper defrauded through an online dating scheme. (He was charged with grand larceny.)

If this sounds like an SNL skit, that's because it is. Just last weekend Ben Affleck played a meth head who faked his own death to avoid paying back friends and family members. [Pitchfork]
