The West Coast legend, born Nathaniel D. Hale, was known for his distinctive deep singing voice, which was used on numerous hiphop hooks. He collaborated on hit songs with a number of artists including Warren G, 50 Cent and Eminem.

Hale had suffered two strokes in recent years. On Sunday, Warren G tweeted:

      NICE NEWS !
      My friend Vanessa, a 25 yrs lady, has announced her wedding with a m’illionaire young man Ronald who is the CEO of a MNC. It’s amazing, she said she just posted her profile on a m’illionaire d’ating s’ite called ———-RichMatchmaker. ℃○M——– – and received his chat invitations a few days later. Then, everything went so well that I can’t believe it’s true! Every love story will unfold on it’s own..——-
      He probably died from the complication of the stoke.

      My mom had a stroke she only lived for one month after a stroke.

    • WTF!

      R.I.P Nate Dogg, thanks for putting our city on the map, you will be missed. We have to start getting serious about our health Black ppl. 41 is way too young, wasn’t Gerald Levert that age too when he died. Black Women we have to start feeding our families better food. No way in hell I can imagine my husband gone at 41. The B.A.D (Black American Diet) is even worse than the S.A.D (Standard American Diet), these are habits that can be changed.

      I did not mentioned diabetes “dummy” he did have 2 strokes which is most likely related to cholesterol. Check your facts before the “dummy” responds.
