    I was excepting Akon or T-pain to say something


    Bandana Black Reply:

    @From Canada, Long before there was a T-pain, or a Akon, there was a voice that could be heard with hevy rotation, on every station, across the nation. Nate Dogg was the T-Pain of his era. Although not as sucessful on his own solo projects, it was garanteed that if you put this mans voice on your tracks, it was gonna blow up. As time goes on, it will dawn on people as to how many songs this man was actualy on. The whole LBC is gonna party tonight. Last stop at the eastside motel,…heaven with clouds of green smoke in the air. RIP DPG!

  37. Ishola Emmanuel

    I got dis call yes’day, from mah home boi, telling me dat Nate Dogg just hit d bricks, I told him 2 quit dat $h!t, but I later discovered it was real… Wat a life (Every minute of it counts) and he really utilized his. I wonder how Warren G feels or wat he’ll be saying or is it Dre who featured Nate in all his album. My favourite Nate Dogg album was G Funk Classics & favourite song on dat album was HARDEST MAN IN TOWN. He’s my favourite Hip Hop artiste any day, anytime. A TRUE OL’G is gone and I’ll miss u Dogg. Say me “Word Up”to PAC & BIG and our own FELA wen u get 2 c dem. Have a blossom rest Nigga.

  53. Pacshadybiggiedresnoopnated12

    (Rollin out on tour today) GETTING SAD CAUSE IM GOIN AWAY/ I loved him on pac’s music. I won’t say I was a Nate fan because I never realy listened to his music until after he died. I only knew his cameos on 2pac and eminems music. So I won’t call myself a fan because I respect him to much to be one of those people who suddenly love a artist after they die but wen the artist is alive they dont. And I do love and respect Nate dogg by the way. Rip, I know real rap has been gone for a wile and u were gfunk not rap, but a little more of rap died with you because of all the stuff you did with rap legends.( commin from a true rap fan
