RIP Nate Dogg

Today (March 15) marks the 1 year anniversary of the passing of one of Hip Hop's most distinguishable voices; Nate Dogg. His voice can be heard on many West Coast classics including Regulate.

He began singing as a child in the New Hope Baptist Church in Long Beach and Life Line Baptist Church in Clarksdale, Mississippi where his father Daniel Lee Hale was pastor. He Made his Debut on Dr. Dre's The Chronic and would go on to sign with Death Row.
