Sad news reaches us this morning that American singer Nate Dogg has passed away. Nate, who signed to Death Row Records in 1993, after making his mainstream debut on Dre's The Chronic, originally had his first taste of the game as a member of 213 with Snoop Dogg and Warren G.

He appeared on over 40 top 100 Billboard singles including many by Tupac and released three solo albums including 1998's G Funk Classics, Vol 1 & 2.

Nate had been ill for some time after suffering a stroke in 2007.
