Nate Dogg Dead at 41

(Gibson) Rapper/singer Nate Dogg died on Tuesday, according to an announcement his family made to the Long Beach Press-Telegram. He was 41.

Although the cause of death has not yet been revealed, Dogg (born Nathaniel D. Hale) had suffered strokes in 2007 and 2008, which had left him partially paralyzed.

Dogg, who was Snoop Dogg's cousin, became a big name on the West Coast hip-hop scene in the mid-'90s, when he contributed heavily to Dr. Dre's multi-platinum album, The Chronic. He went on to sing the hook on tracks that were huge rap and pop hits, including "Regulate" with Warren G, Dre and Snoop's "The Next Episode," Ludacris' "Area Codes," 50 Cent's "21 Questions" and Eminem's "Shake That." Often seen in the videos for the songs, the Grammy-nominated singer was famous for wearing a bowler hat. more on this story
