Nathaniel "Nate Dogg" Hale - August 19, 1969 – March 15, 2011

Hip hop fans all over the world are waking up to news of the passing of a legend. I don't use that term loosely, but that is what Nate Dogg was. The original hook master. If you needed to make an album pop in the 90's or 2000's you called on his services to sing the hook. His smooth vocals, coupled with his tough west coast g-funk persona, made for a combination that can not be replicated. It came off on wax as a reserved, confident man who didn't need to get loud to get his point across. You knew that he meant business and was not to be fucked with. Working with some of the biggest hip hop acts ever, from the West, East, North, South, wherever, he solidified himself in the pages of music history. I have compiled some of Nate's best features. I'm not going to rank these, or do anything like that. I just think they should be enjoyed. While he has tons and tons of features, I picked 10. These are some of the ones he's best known for, as well as some of my personal favorites.

what is this fuckery ?

this fuckery would be some type of advertisement/snippet type shit for some project that my homie Dmitri is putting together. i know absolutely nothing about this project, or what it will entail, so maybe he will be cool enough to swoop thru the comments and provide some insight as to what he is working on. either way, the beat in this video is definitely towing the line between "i fux with it" and "certified crack cocaine"

UPDATE - dmitri just sent me the cover art to said project, so i figured i'd add it to here. apparently, it's going to be titled "ticket stubs". he probably explained this to me at some point, and i forgot because my short term memory just isn't what it used to be.

the new standard??

this started as a random comment from me on nahright, but i was actually thinking that it's pretty accurate..
let's see if we can get this to become the new standard of excellence (or garbage, in "Laser's" case)

-holy ghost music (reserved for only the holiest of holy)
-certified crack cocaine (not classic, but damn good)
-i fucks with it (might get some repeat spins, but nothing groundbreaking)
-mad “eh..” status (unimpressive, mad average, doesn't stand out in any way)
-wack juice (terrible music, what were they thinking? GTFOHWDBS)
-verizon wireless is hiring (should only be used in the event that the artist should give up music altogether and never touch a mic again.. pause)

and for the record, just to apply the new system for this weeks 2 biggest drops..
lupe fiasco's "lasers" is considered "wack juice" - i would of given it the dreaded "verizon wireless is hiring", but i still think lupe has a chance to make good music, so i don't want him to retire.. i just never want to hear "lasers" again

on the other hand, raekwon seems to keep winning(is rae copping tiger blood from sheen on the low? he seems to be unable to drop wackness lately)i wouldn't call "shaolin vs wu-tang" certified "holy ghost music", but let's be serious- an album can't be bestowed such a prestigious honor after a few days in the rotation. the shit is most definitely certified crack cocaine tho.. if you haven't heard "rich & black" yet, slap yourself and then click play on the embed below.

spread the word.. 5 mics ? XXL ? we off that.. MC's need to be aiming for that "holy ghost music"..

nas- "star wars"

i realize this isn't the GOAT nas track, but it came through on the shuffle, and fit my mood perfectly.. sometimes, i just need some crazy lyrics over a nice little beat. fuck all that extra shit.
