Nate Dogg Dies at Age 41: His Best Performances

More

Singer Nate Dogg, whose deep, soulful voice carried the hooks on some of the early '90s most influential hip-hop records, died Tuesday at age 41. Though his cause of death is unknown, he'd had health problems for years, suffering from strokes in 2007 and 2008. After breaking out with his work on Dr. Dre's iconic album The Chronic, Nate Dogg (born Nathaniel Hale) became a key player in the rise of the West Coast G-funk sound and Death Row Records. His instantly recognizable voice was featured on records from Snoop Dogg, Warren G, Eminem, and countless others, and his numerous solo albums were equally influential.

Vibe has compiled a retrospective of some of his greatest music appearances:

Warren G ft. Nate Dogg - "Regulate"



Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg and Nate Dogg - "The Next Episode"



Nate Dogg - "I Got Love"
