    R.I.P Nate Dogg

    Nate Dogg dead at the age of 41


    Life and career

    Nate Dogg was born in Long Beach, California.[1] He began singing as a child in the New Hope Baptist Church in Long Beach, and at Life Line Baptist Church in Clarksdale, Mississippi, where his father (Daniel Lee Hale) was a pastor.[2] At the age of 16 he dropped out of high school in Long Beach, California and left home to join the United States Marine Corps,[3] serving for three years.
    He was the friend and partner in the rap game with rappers Snoop Dogg, Warren G, RBX, Daz Dillinger and was the cousin of Butch Cassidy and Lil' ½ Dead. Nate, Snoop Dogg and Warren G, who all belonged to the Rollin 20 Crips gang formed a rap trio called 213,[4] which recorded its first demo in the back of the famed V.I.P record store in Long Beach. The demo was later heard by Dr. Dre at a house party, who was impressed with Nate's soulful voice.[citation needed]
    Nate Dogg made his debut on The Chronic. Singing in what later become his trademark style, he was well-received by fans and critics alike, and would go on to sign with Death Row Records in 1993. Nate Dogg was also featured on Mista Grimm's "Indosmoke" with Warren G. Then in 1994 he produced his first hit single "Regulate" with Warren G. Nate Dogg was also featured in many Tupac releases, including his collaboration record Thug Life: Volume I. In 1998, after a tumultuous time at Death Row Records, he released another album. The double album was titled G-Funk Classics Vol. 1 & 2 and was followed up in late 2001 with Music & Me on Elektra Records. Music & Me peaked at number three on the Billboard hip-hop charts in 2001.[5]
    In 2002, Nate Dogg appeared on a celebrity episode of The Weakest Link, making it to the last three players before being eliminated by Xzibit and Young MC.[6]
    Nate Dogg was arrested in Arizona in April 2002 and was charged with firearms and drug offenses.[7] He pleaded guilty in May 2002 and was subsequently sentenced to probation and community service.[8] He was also ordered to attend drug counseling sessions.[8]
    As of 2004, Nate Dogg has featured in and contributed to over 40 chart singles.[9]
    After a number of delays and an original release date of April 2004, his self-titled album Nate Dogg was released on Affiliated Entertainment Group on June 3, 2008.[10]
    Stroke and health

    On December 19, 2007, he suffered a stroke,[11] according to a coordinator for his recently formed gospel choir, Innate Praise.[11] Initial media reports suggested he had been admitted to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center in Pomona, California after suffering a heart attack.
    Erica Beckwith told MTV News that Nate Dogg had been released on December 26 after being treated for a stroke and had been admitted to a medical-rehab facility to assist him in his recovery. In January 2008, it was officially reported that the stroke had rendered the left side of his body paralyzed. Doctors believed there would be a full recovery, and his voice was not affected. In September 2008, Nate suffered a second stroke.[12] Warren G later confirmed that since the second stroke, Nate was undergoing physical therapy in an attempt to return to some normality, but it was unclear whether Nate would be able to resume his singing career.[13]
    Death

    Wikinews has related news: US rapper Nate Dogg dies at age 41 Nate Dogg died on March 15, 2011 in Long Beach, California from complications related to his previous strokes.[1][14][15][16][17][18] Tributes poured in from collaborators and friends such as Ludacris, The Game, 50 Cent, Snoop Dogg, Daz Dillinger, Xzibit, Erykah Badu, Murs, Big Pooh, Big Syke, Fabolous, Sheist, Knoc-Turn'al, Ice-T, Warren G and Eminem.[19][18][20][21]

    Mixed feelings...While it's sad when any member of the rap community dies, Nate Dogg and his whole crew sucked. They are responsible for driving one of the nails into hip hop's coffin IMO. I also fear that this will make major media due to his notoriety but when a true legend like Guru dies there is hardly a mention other than through hip hop sources.

    On top of his general health I'm sure. He wasn't exactly 50 Cent physique wise.

    50 is on a different level.. lol.. but he's also one of the smarter Rappers out there, well business wise atleast.. the Vitamin water deal he made was crazy. 50 has an INSANE drive to make money and succeed.

    Now if he could just rhyme beyond single syllables. He's one of those rappers that 99% of the bars they are spitting is just simple filler anyone could come up with. And the way he delivers is atrocious and lispy. Just like Ugly Duckling put it on In The Tub..."People think I'm dope but I sound like Elmer Fudd". To this day I don't see how he became popular other than Em pushing him.

    I don't mind listening to Nate Dogg and his cohorts every now and again if I'm in the right mood. He wasn't nearly as bad as some of the people he chose to associate with.

    Im more of an R&B guy now. I only listen to a little rap.. I was into the whole gangsta rap when I was younger.. but not now. It's all the same, Blunt's, B******,40's.. lol. They all rap about the same stuff.. I like the rap about life and the struggle. it has feeling to it. Lupe Fiasco isnt bad. I like him.

    Nate had a good run. if he didnt have his crew he woulda flopped hard though.
