Famed crooner Nate Dogg, who sang hooks for "Indosmoke," "Regulate," "Thugs Get Lonely Too," "Lay Low," "Deeez Nuuutz," and "The Next Episode," has died at age 41. Born Nathaniel Dwayne Hale, the Long Beach artist was known for his iconic, sultry baritone, which added an extra layer of gloss to hardcore rap songs by his Death Row labelmates. He debuted on Dr. Dre's 1993 album The Chronic and released his first solo effort, G Funk Classics, in 1998. While the cause of Nate Dogg's death remains unclear, family members suspect it ties back to a massive stroke the rapper suffered in 2007. He will be mourned by fans and immortalized in the hip-hop canon.


Still got love for a G:
