Nate Dogg, one of the most recognizable and smooth voices in rap and R & B, has died. He passed away on Tuesday, at the age of 41.
Born Nathaniel Hale, Nate Dogg suffered from ill health for years. His death was first reported in the Long Beach Press-Telegram.
The hook singer first came to national attention on Dr. Dre’s 1992 masterpiece “The Chronic.” Nate earned the first of four Grammy nominations in 1995 for “Regulate,” a collaboration with Warren G. His fourth and most recent nomination came for Eminem’s “Shake That” in 2007.
