Richard Johnson, a rapper hailing from Compton, California, is widely recognized by his stage name "Tweedy Bird Loc." He was born on August 4, 1967, and sadly passed away on April 3, 2020.

Tweedy Bird Loc was the founder of The U.W.C. (Underground Connection) and played a pivotal role in introducing Bloody Mary to the music industry. Alongside producer Ronnie Phillips, he spearheaded the hip-hop project called Bloods & Crips, which resulted in the collaborative album "Bangin' On Wax." This project brought together real members of the Bloods and Crips gangs, organized with the involvement of DJ Battlecat and Kluso. As a Crip himself, Tweedy Bird Loc belonged to the same gang as the late gangsta rap pioneer Eazy-E, specifically the Kelly Park Compton Crip set.

There was a dispute between Tweedy Bird Loc and Eazy-E, as Eazy chose not to sign Tweedy to Ruthless Records. However, Tweedy did collaborate with Eazy's son, Lil Eazy E. Prior to Eazy-E's unfortunate passing in 1995, Tweedy Bird Loc was able to reconcile with him and mend their differences.
