Nate Dogg is one of the most influential rappers of the day, delivering timeless hooks and flawless classic records, that has made him one of the very best to have ever spit. Having dropped bars with the biggest names to have ever been in the game, Nate Dogg’s 20 year career saw him collabing with pretty much all of West-Coast hip hop back in the day- in fact, he practically invented it. Nathaniel Dwayne Hale has the classic hip hop jewelry look that only true G’s can muster, and his style and bars are an inspiration to spitters even today.

Cousin to none other than Snoop Dogg, Nate started his rap career back in 1990 with Warren G, Snoop and himself as the trio 213. Dropping dope tracks on The Chronic, Nate would eventually move on to sign with Death Row Records, wherein his career continued to grow with classic collabs with Tupac on Thug Life: Vol 1 and individuals tracks such as Regulate.

Throughout his career Nate Dogg released two studio albums, with another two being released posthumously), and his bars can be heard from The Next Episode with Dr. Dre, All About U with 2Pac to Shake That with Eminem.  Westside Connection, Dr. Dre, Xzibit, Ludarcris, Mobb Deep, Eminem, Tha Dogg Pound, 50 Cent, The Game, Fabolous, Thug Life, and many others have all been names Nate Dogg has brought pure fire and rapped with throughout time.

In late 2007 Nate Dogg suffered a stroke- shortly after he was released from the hospital, he went to a medical rehabilitation facility to help him heal. Regrettably, in early 2008 it was announced that the entire left side of his body was paralyzed due to the stroke. Later the same year he suffered another stroke, and eventually passed due to stroke complications in 2011. Today, one of Nate Dogg’s sons “Lil Nate Dogg” is releasing raps in his father’s footsteps, where Nate’s other son plays football with the University of Arizona.
