I miss my dogg


Yup, it's the generic R.I.P Nate Dogg, yo post.

Nate Dogg - I Got Love (2001)

Nate Dogg - One More Day (1994)

We all know Nathaniel's classic hooks for other people, but contrary to belief, he did have some solo jams of his own too with I Got Love and One More Day being the best examples of the o.g 'Rother's unassisted mellifluous timbre in full flight and two of my favourite singles from their respective years to boot. I guess this means the likelihood of there being anything worthwhile on Detox is now nigh on nonexistent.

Nate Dogg ft. Warren G - Nobody Does It Better (1998)

And no rapper wore a bowler hat better; not even Mello-T.

ah man i forgot nobody does it better has a video, i woulda thrown that on my obligatory nate post, darn.

the really weird part about this for me was just prior to recieving the txt informing me he died, i was just thinking (literally like a minute before) how id probably never get to see him live cos of the strokes. kinda freaked me out for a minute, like i had telekiniesis and somehow killed him ala scanners or something.

um, yeah.

no lie - while not welling up or anything, this fucked my day up quite a bit. im a huge fan

ah i just realised that snoops boss' life is a great post-documentary dre beat. knew there was one.

the fact Dre went with Akon instead of Nate for that horrid 'Kush' single now seems like a worse decision that ever. Would've been nice if his last track was a classic with Dre & Snoop.

I think Nate was so fucked up after his stroke he couldn't sing anymore.

Hopefully gonna see Snoop & (allegedly) Warren G, Kurupt, Daz & Rage performing Doggystyle in July. Wondered why Nate wasnt on the flyer.

Is that at some festival?

I'd like to see that, but I'd never go to a festival.
