not sure if there’s anyone out there who hasn’t sung along to a Nate Dogg line at some point in their lives. the man made a name for himself worldwide for singing some pretty famous hooks. while i wasn’t THE biggest fan, i admired his work & the haters were always few. more than anything i wish he’d done some more work with DJ Quik, they go good together. so instead of posting his most well-known hits, leme chuck up a few YouTube clips of Nate + Quik collabos. peace (and none of that “may you regulate in heaven” shit, christ is that a lame way to honour someone).
here’s a standout track with 213 (Nate, Warren G & Snoop Dogg).
and a bangin music vid to the heatrock track Crazy from Snoop’s Tha Blue Carpet Treatment album.
Check this quirky tribute to Nate:
that…was pretty fkn cool. they go offbeat a couple times but still…noice.
