Rapper DTTX of A Lighter Shade of Brown, real name Bobby Ramirez, died Monday afternoon (July 18) after lying in a coma for 11 days, TMZ is reporting. Ramirez was found on July 7 unresponsive in a Las Vegas street, with severe burns and a body temperature of 107 degrees, his family told the website. He was taken to a nearby hospital and was placed on life support.

A Lighter Shade of Brown, the duo that DTTX helped form in the early 90s, shared the above condolences, writing “It is with great sadness to inform you that our brother Bobby DTTX Ramirez has passed away.

Though his family tells TMZ that the rapper long battled alcoholism, they believe cardiac arrest and heat stroke to be the causes of death. DTTX was 46 years old.

Hip-hop has lost a number of figure this year, including Phife Dawg of A Tribe Called Quest, Prince Be of P.M. Dawn and John Barry, an original member of the Beastie Boys. All condolences are extended to DTTX’s family. Listen to the group’s 1990 release Brown & Proud below.
