Nate Dogg

On this date in 2011 in Long Beach, California, Nathaniel Hale, better known as rap/R&B crooner Nate Dogg, died from complications after suffering several strokes. He was 41 years old.

His Long Beach homie Snoop Dogg introduced him to the rap game via their trio 213, which was the group brought to Dr. Dre by his little brother Warren G. and made everyone in the trio West Coast Legends.
Nate was a trailblazer in the rap/R&B fusion, with smash hits with Fabolous, Mobb Deep, Mos Def, Ludacris, and many more. He earned four Grammy nods.

Salute and condolences to the entire 213 families from the Mind Squad, The Source Magazine, and the entire Northstar Media Group. Nate was an intricate member of our culture and will truly be missed.
