Nate Dogg Dead At 41
On Tuesday, March 15th 2011, legendary gangsta rap artist Nathaniel Dwayne Hale, better known by his stage name, Nate Dogg passed away in his Long Beach, California home at the age of 41. He had previously suffered a stroke in December of 2007, which was later reported to have paralyzed the left portion of his body. Following that incident he would suffer another stroke in September of 2008.
Nate Dogg rose to fame in the early nineties contributing his smooth vocals to Dr. Dre’s legendary 1992 album, The Chronic, thrusting the emcee into the mainstream spotlight. His more notable tracks would be his contributions to Warren G’s 1994 anthem, “Regulate” and his collaboration with Eminem on 2007’s “Shake That” for which he would later go on to receive his fourth Grammy nomination. Official cause of death is still pending.
