Late rapper Tim Dog's family may hope he's really resting in peace as reports claim an arrest warrant has been issued for him courtesy of a Mississippi judge.

Although Dog allegedly passed away over the winter, new speculation of his possible existence has sparked the need for a warrant.

A Desoto County,MS judge has issued an arrest warrant for Rapper 'Tim Dog' who is supposed to be dead. Tim Dog, or Timothy Blair, was convicted of swindling a Southhaven women in 2011, but it was reported he died in February. Hernando Prosecutor Steven Jubera says if Tim Dog is alive, he's pulling of the greatest scam ever in the history of hip hop. And if he's alive, he's also going to jail. "I need proof," said Jubera. Proof is not easy to get when it comes to Blair. Prosecutor Jubera says he will drop the arrest warrant, if Tim Dog's family members can come forward and show proof of his death. (WREG)

Last week, reports of a woman claiming the New York rapper is nothing more than a scam artist who faked his death for financial reasons emerged.

A woman who was swindled by a famous rapper says 'Tim Dog' may be up to his biggest scam yet. The rapper reportedly died in February, but the Mid-South woman he scammed believes the con man may have faked his own death. Timothy Blair, more commonly known as Tim Dog, owes her money. When he was reported dead, she says, all the payments stopped. He got famous in the 90s for his song about Compton, but Tim Dog's lasting legacy, in Esther Pilgrim's mind, will be something else, "He really thinks he can outsmart everybody." She says the rapper swindled her out $32,000, "A fictitious business deal." She's not the only one who says Tim Dog is a con man. "Twenty victims have contacted me personally from around the world," she said. (WREG News)
