As somebody easing into my 30's I remember Nate Dogg clear back from 1993 when he was obviously a young buck. I was wondering whatever happened to him...you're not supposed to have strokes when you're in your 30's Nate, those are supposed to be when you're too old to wear your rag anymore and you've got grandkids. Tupac might have some company to chill with and talk about the days now, all the weed you can smoke and all the hoes a gangsta could ever want. RIP, best Gangsta rap hook singer ever...
