Suicidal Tendencies bassist Tim "Rawbiz" Williams has died, according to a post on the group's Facebook page.  The cause of death wasn't revealed.

"It’s with complete sadness that we have to announce the passing of bassist Tim “Rawbiz” Williams," the band writes. "Tim played bass for Suicidal Tendencies for almost four years until recently. Tim was a monster on bass, running around on stage in the pit, giving his all, even when his body wasn’t at it's best. We will always remember him and appreciate all the kind words by those that were touched by his bass playing and him personally."

Rawbiz -- who also recorded with Toni Braxton , Boyz II Men and Keyshia Cole -- joined Suicidal Tendencies in 2011.  His other credits include Diddy' s 2009 reality show Making His Band , which documented the hip-hop mogul's search for his backing band.

Williams is credited with playing bass on only one song on Suicidal Tendencies' latest album,  13 , which came out in March 2013.

Just last week, Rawbiz shared a clip on his Facebook page of him playing bass over Usher's "Caught Up," live in Puerto Rico.
