Bobby Ramirez -- best known as rapper DTTX from A Lighter Shade of Brown -- died Monday afternoon after lying in a coma for 11 days.

Ramirez was found unresponsive July 7th on a scorching Vegas street. His family tells us when paramedics found him, his body temperature was 107 degrees and he had severe burns.

Ramirez was taken to a nearby hospital and placed on life support.

Ramirez' family tells us the 46-year-old had battled the bottle for years ... but they believe his death was due to cardiac arrest and heat stroke.

Ramirez grew up in Riverside, CA before teaming up with fellow rapper ODM in the 90's to form A Lighter Shade of Brown. The duo made several successful albums, including "Brown & Proud."

#RIP

I actually got a chance to see LSOB perform just a few months ago here in Phoenix at the Lowrider Supershow. Next to Brenton Wood, they performed more classics than any other artist there imo. A few years back a few of my homeboys opened up for them at a show in Tempe. AZ, I got a chance to chop it up for a minute with them and got my Layin In The Cut album autographed, real cool dudes. I've always liked Lighter Shade (I even still got the cassette single of On A Sunday Afternoon in my old tape stash), this is some sad news, R.I.P. DTTX.
