BREAKING NEWS: After suffering from two strokes since 2007, Long Beach Rap Legend, Nate Dogg aka Nathaniel Hale has died at 41 years old. On Tuesday, March 15th, 2011, his family announced his death. Born and raised in Long Beach, Nate rose to fame by providing hooks for Dr. Dre, Eminem, Warren G and Snoop Dogg among countless other artists. While not known for his individual solo success, Nate was considered one of the greatest hook men in the business. According to Nate Dogg’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, Nate died due to complications from his multiple strokes.
There have been many rumors of Nate’s passing in the past, but this appears to be legitimate. Rumors swirled in 2007 when he suffered his first stroke, then again in 2008 when he suffered a second stroke. Since 2008, he had been recovering slowly from the ill effects of the strokes in a recovery home. The official annoucement was made on the Long Beach Press Telegram.
One of Nate Dogg’s greatest solo commercial hits was Never Leave Me Alone. Check out the video below.
