Nate Dogg Passes Away

March 16, 2011
Nate Dogg, Nathaniel D. Hale, died at the age of 41 late yesterday after a long battle with some serious health issues.

According to reports, the rapper/singer died of complications from multiple strokes. A constant staple on numerous Dr. Dre and West Coast classics, Nate Dogg is most notably remembered for his featured role on Warren G's 1994 masterwork "Regulate." Even though not many knew about his health issues, Nate did survive a pair of strokes in 2007 and 2008. Warren G wrote on Twitter on Sunday after the most recent attack, "For those that dont know awhile back nate had 2 strokes he is in therapy thanks again for your support."
