Imagine my surprise when I saw on the front page of Yahoo that one of my all-time favorite rappers Nate Dogg had died at the age of 41. If the name Nate Dogg doesn’t ring a bell maybe you’ll remember one of his biggest hits the collaboration that he did with Warren G…Regulate.
According to the Yahoo article Nate Dogg’s family confirmed that the rapper did indeed pass yesterday March 15th and that his death was attributed to “complications from multiple strokes.” Also according to the article Nate Dogg, whose real name was Nathaniel D. Hale, the rapper had suffered from strokes in both 2007 and 2008.
I still remember when this song hit the charts, it was the summer of my sophomore year or high school and this song was everywhere and quickly became one of my favorites. To this day when I wanna reminisce I go to YouTube and this song is one of the first that I listen to! Nate Dogg will be dearly missed by all of his fans, but his distinct voice and music will forever live on in our hears!
