TIM DOG started his career in the mid 80’s when
Tony Miller - older brother of Ced-Gee from the Ultramagnetic MC’s
- introduced him to Scott La Rock of Boogie Down Productions. Scott
took a liking to him 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 important as being your best."
Scott unfortunately met an untimely death leaving
Tim with no outlet to express his talent. It was then when that
Patrick Miller the younger brother of Ced-Gee took him under his
wings and got him involved with Ced. “Ced-Gee’s sharp
wit and business savvy is what prepared me for this business."
Tim was working with Ced in the studio and recording his demo when
Ced gave him the opportunity of a life time - the chance to be on
a single called “Chorus Line.” This classic debut marked
