Nate Dogg 1969 - 2011

One of the best hip-hop collaborators of all time died on March 15. The cause was complications due to a stroke. "Regulate," top video above, from 1994 was the first huge hit he was featured on. It has aged little since. "The Next Episode," released in 2000, features Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and Kurupt. Both were massive hits and were nominated for Grammy awards. His mix of menace and melancholy made his hooks unique. His voice had the smooth gloss of Michael McDonald and a hardened edge from the streets. RIP Nate.
