RIP NATE DOGG, YOU WERE ONE OF MY FAVORITES. PLEASE EVERYONE, LET THIS BE SOMETHING WHERE WE ALL CAN LEARN FROM. STROKES ARE NOT A JOKE AND CAN HIT MANY OF US BECAUSE OF THE HYPERTENSION THAT WE AS BLACK PEOPLE ARE MORE APT TO HAVE. IF HIS DEATH TEACHES US ANYTHING, IT SHOULD BE TO WATCH WHAT WE EAT AND MAKE SURE TO VISIT A DOCTOR EVERY ONCE IN WHILE TO HAVE THAT BLOOD PRESSURE CHECKED. PEOPLE WHO SUFFER FROM HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE ARE 4 TO 6 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO SUFFER FROM STROKES.
YOU WILL TRULY BE MISSED NATE DOGG.

I would like to thank Nate for all the positive role making that he stood for in the music industry. I pray that God will bless the family in this time of sorrow, yet, let's look at this situation as a celebration, for God know's how to handle His business. He will definitely be missed.
