Yesterday in the LBC, the world lost a true rap icon and innovator.

Nate Dogg was born Nathaniel D. Hale and was one of the founders of G-Funk along with Warren G and Snoop (and others like DJ Quik). He was a true originator of the "sing a kinda R'nB hook on this track homie" style that we all now know as a staple of 'hip-hop' today.

Everyone has their own personal favorites and memories of Nate's vocals and this has been true since his beginnings. His voice had such a memorable, unique, and haunting tone that tracks he was on instantly captivated. Me anyway.

Dr. Dre f. Snoop Doggy Dogg, Dat Nigga Daz & Nate Dogg - Deez Nuts

Nate Dogg - Be Thankful

Oh and I forgot this one!!! Loved this track when it came out...dunno how I feel about the Saigon addition, but its all gravy.

Mark Ronson f. Ghostface Killah, Nate Dogg, Saigon, & Trife

You can't say he never thought about death.
