The rapper who helped people picture Tupac rollin' has died.

TMZ has learned Big Syke was found dead at his home in Hawthorne, CA late Monday night. Law enforcement sources tell us cops responded first to a call to the scene, and then the L.A. County Coroner arrived. No foul play is suspected.

Sources close to the situation tell us Syke -- real name Tyruss Himes -- is believed to have died from natural causes, although an autopsy has yet to be performed. We're told he had a history of heart issues and obesity.

Big Syke was a longtime friend of Tupac, and dropped verses on a bunch of his tracks, such as "All Eyez on Me," "Picture Me Rollin'" and "Check Out Time." He was also a member of Tupac's Thug Life group.

He was 48.

Damn, just 48 years young!

Syke had problems with obesity? I never saw him as a fat man before, but I guess he was out of the spotlight for much of the past few years.

I wonder if he was living in a nice home when he died, or whether he was living in a poor man's shack. My suspicion is the latter. Rich people don't die so young of heart problems, they have doctors looking after them.

Syke was a simple hood nigga, he never got anything cracking on social media, so it's no surprise that he gets less love as a result.

Damn, with the death of Syke, a lot of Tupac knowledge disappears. Syke was around for some real interesting and obscure parts of Pac's life. When you listen to R U Still Down, you get taken back to a time when Pac was on some basic hood nigga shit, kicking it with Syke and Richie Rich, just being young and getting into trouble. I like that period of Pac's life.

Man, this is another rough one.  I can remember my friends and I practically wearing out the "Thug Life vol.1" album
at various gatherings/house parties.  He had so many memorable appearances on Pac's albums too. Very sorry to
hear of his passing.  RIP

RIP Big Syke.  One of those instantly recognisable voices in west-coast rap.
He was a big part of the greatest rap record in history so he'll always be remembered by me.

Here's the last interview he did. Doesn't look obese.

He lived in Hawthorne? Imagined man like him who made features in those big tracks would get nice checks every once in a while for publishing but I guess not. RIP.
