Nathaniel "Nate Dogg" Hale
1969 - 2011
We lost another Hip Hop giant today. Calling Nate Dogg simply a rapper does his nearly endless catalog of outstanding songs and appearances a huge disservice. Nate was an all around vocalist capable of bringing the (G)Funk to any song just by singing what he lived. The "King of Hooks," as he was widely known, had been sick for a while after having two strokes and several surgeries, but his legacy as one of the foremost pillars of West Coast Rap will live on. How are we going to regulate without hm?
