Nate Dogg Passes Away

Nathaniel Dwayne Hale (August 19, 1969 – March 15, 2011), better known by his stage name Nate Dogg, was an American musician. On December 19, 2007, he suffered a stroke according to a coordinator for his recently formed gospel choir, Innate Praise. Initial media reports suggested he had been admitted to Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center in Pomona, California after suffering a heart attack. However Erica Beckwith told MTV News that Nate Dogg had been released on December 26 after being treated for a stroke and had been admitted to a medical-rehab facility to assist him in his recovery. In January 2008, it was officially reported that the stroke had rendered the left side of his body paralyzed. Doctors believed there would be a full recovery, and his voice was not affected. In September 2008, Nate suffered a second stroke. Warren G later confirmed that since the second stroke, Dogg was undergoing physical therapy in an attempt to return to some normality, but it was unclear whether Dogg would be able to resume his singing career. Nate Dogg died on March 15, 2011 in Long Beach, California. The cause of death has not yet been reported.

“Till the roof comes off, till the lights go out, till my legs give out, can’t shut my mouth Till the smoke clears out and my high burns out, I’ma rip this shit till my bones collapse.” – Nate Dogg
