Nate Dogg

West Coast rapper Nate Dogg died two years ago today. Nathaniel Dwayne Hale passed aged just 41, from complications of multiple strokes, a doctor confirmed at the time.

Born on August 19, 1969 in Clarksdale, Mississippi Nate Dogg's solo career saw him work with some of hip hop's biggest legends, including Dr. Dre, Eminem, Warren G, Tupac Shakur, Westside Connection and Snoop Dogg. But at the age of 16 he dropped out of high school in Long Beach, California, and joined the US Marine Corps, where he served for three years.

It wasn't until 1991 that his rap career blossomed, as he joined rap group 213. Snoop Lion - formerly known as fellow Dogg, Snoop - remembers Nate in 'Reincarnated' - a film documenting his change in life style, Rastafarian switch over and visit to Kingston, Jamaica.
