After being in a coma for nearly two weeks, A Lighter Shade of Brown rapper Bobby “DTTX” Ramirez died Monday (July 18). He was 46.
The Riverside, California native (whose stage name stands for “Don’t Try to Xerox”) is said to have battled alcohol addiction. His family believes he died from a heat stroke or cardiac arrest, TMZ reports.
Group member Robert “ODM” Gutierrez (a.k.a., “One Dope Mexican”) confirmed the death on Facebook late Monday, asking for prayers during this “difficult time.”
The Mexican rap duo scored their biggest hit with “On A Sunday Afternoon,” off their 1990 debut album, Brown and Proud.
