Rapper Nate Dogg Dead at Age 41
"All doggs do go to heaven," according to Snoop Dogg.
After years of struggling with health problems, the voice of G-Funk, Nate Dogg has passed away.
Nate Dogg, born Nathaniel Hale, was a pioneer in the hip-hop game hailing from Long Beach, California.
He was part of the original West Coast rap movement and involved with Death Row Records in the 1990's.
The four-time Grammy nominee was best known for his jam with Warren G, "Regulate."
The exact cause of death has not been released but we do know that Hale suffered a stroke in 2007 and another a year later.
Hale's peers took to Twitter last night and this morning to pay tribute to their friend and hip-hop legend.
Last night Snoop tweeted, "We lost a true legend n hip hop n rnb. One of my best friends n a brother to me since 1986 when I was a sophomore at poly high where we met. I love u buddy luv.
