Very sad news to report. TMZ is reporting that Nathaniel Dwayne Hale, or Nate Dogg as he was better known, has passed away. The hip-hop star was only 41 years old, and our condolences go out to his family and friends. Nate had a lot of serious health concerns in the last couple of years which included strokes in 2007 and 2008.
Considering he collaborated with everyone from Snoop Dogg to Warren G, this is going to hit a lot of entertainers hard. Celebrities have already started reacting to the news. Dave Chappelle just tweeted, “Moment of silence for a hip-hop legend; RIP Nate Dogg. You will be missed, G Funk Era forever.”
