All yours fan here in Australia are so saddend by this news, a true rap legend with the golden r&b hooks that took West Coast Rap and Rap in general to a new level. One of a kind aint no other person can sing like you could on a hardcore rap song like you. I bet your in Thugz Mansion chillin with Pac and Big, my thoughts are with your friends and family at this tragic time.
REST IN PEACE NATE DOGG XOXO

RIP - Peace to your family ++ Take care -

Though the list is extensive, I will always have my favorites:
"Gangsta Nation"...(Must be a single if Nate Dogg singin' on it)....and the crushed-velvet sound of "Regulate"..

PeaceOut //// NotForgotten
