RIP, Nate Dogg

Nate Dogg, one third of Long Beach collective "213" 
(with Snoop Dogg and Warren G), and half of the hip-hop duo Warren G and Nate Dogg.
passed away of unknown causes today. 
He was 41 years old.

Nate Dogg is best known for providing hooks 
on a plethora of West Coast "gangsta rap" joints
from the Death Row camp, including hooks on 
"The Chronic", "Doggystyle", "All Eyez On Me", 
as well as Dr. Dre's "Chronic 2001" album
and the classic duet with Warren G, "Regulate" and
"Area Codes" with Ludacris.
Nate suffered 2 strokes, one in 2007 and another in 2008.
He will be extremely missed, especially within
the Hip-Hop culture and community.
