This year the Hip Hop Community lost one of it's distinctive vocalists and musicians. Nathaniel Dwayne Hale (August 19, 1969 – March 15, 2011), better known by his stage name Nate Dogg, was an American musician. Dogg was known for his successful hip hop collaborations and was closely associated with artists such as Snoop Dogg, Warren G, 2Pac, Game, Eminem, and Dr. Dre.
I've always enjoyed west coast music but I've gained a greater appreciation for it when I relocated to Los Angeles. It became a weekly ritual with my former co-worker Desi, that we began our Thursday Night Shift with " Regulators" by Warren G Feat. Nate Dogg.
