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.
