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.
