Subject: Snoop Dog, Westside Gunn & More Mourn Death of Inglewood Rapper Big Wy

Written By: LyricBoy on 06/04/23 at 8:21 am

California-based rapper Big Wy (real name Wytony Dillon), perhaps best known for forming the Teach Me How To Dougie rap group Cali Swag District in 2010, has passed away at the age of 49. :\'(

Big Wy entered rap in the ’90s as a member of Bloods & Crips where he spit lyrics performing as Red Rag.  He then helmed the Young Soldierz crew in 1994, who signed with Suge Knight’s Death Row Records, and made appearances on soundtracks like Murder Was The Case. 8)

However, Big Wy’s most significant impact came when he and Suga Buga, previously known as Dogg, formed The Relativez in 1998, following the dissolution of Young Soldierz.

The duo went on to release several independent albums that featured artists such as B-Brazy, Mitchy Slick, WC, Kokane, and G Malone. Despite primarily gaining regional success, The Relativez became an integral part of the West Coast rap scene. The Relativez’s career was not without controversy.

Tributes are now pouring in from rap royalty such as Snoop Doggy Dogg, Big U, and Wack 100.  :\'(
