A tribute to the undisputed master of hooks in the rap industry. Rest in peace to Nate Dogg OG LBC. This episode was recorded the night of his death 3/2011. All Nate Dogg playlist.
Nathaniel Dwayne Hale (August 19, 1969 – March 15, 2011), known professionally as Nate Dogg, was an American rapper, singer, songwriter, and actor. Hale initially began his career as a member of the California rap trio 213, alongside his longtime friend Warren G and cousin Snoop Dogg. He eventually pursued a solo career, and released three solo albums, G-Funk Classics, Vol. 1 & 2 in 1998, Music & Me in 2001, and Nate Dogg as a bootlegged album in 2003 and on CD in 2014.
Nate Dogg was known for his deep, low-pitched voice, and for performing hooks, frequently collaborating with other artists such as Dr. Dre, Eminem, Warren G, Tupac Shakur, Westside Connection, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Ludacris, Xzibit, and Shade Sheist on many hit releases. Nate Dogg is regarded as one of the pioneers of G-funk and West Coast hip hop.
Hale died in 2011 due to complications from multiple strokes
Also: More and more rappers coming back using live bands and the once anti-rap venues are now opening their doors to the crowds they bring. This is 2011 and the movement has started. It is now 2018.
