Nate Dogg Passes Away At Age 41
Singer Nate Dogg dies at 41
Hip-hop lost another great one as singer, Nate Dogg died last night at the age of 41. The cause of death has yet to be determined but Nate did suffer from a stroke in 2008.
Nathaniel Dwayne Hale crooned his way in our hearts with a distinct sound and gangsta melodies in the early 90’s.
He added the right notes to songs like Warren G’s “Regulate” and Snoop Dogg’s “Ain’t No Fun” and provided memorable hooks to many of the DeathRow records in that era.
The Long Beach native began in the group 213 with Snoop and Warren and throughout his career he lent his vocals to stars including Eminem, 50 Cent, The Game, Ludacris, Tupac and Dr. Dre.
He was nominated for four Grammys for collaborations and the most successful of his four solo albums was Music & Me.

50 Cent also posted words on Twitter, “I just landed nate dog is dead damn. GOD BLESS HIM R.I.P he meant a lot to west coast hiphop. Iv always been a fan of it.”
“There is a certain void in hip hop’s heart that can never be filled.Glad we got to make history together. RT @SnoopDogg: RIP NATE DOGG,” Ludacris posted.
