Man I am so sorry to hear this. But I am glad he was not taken out like so many other young rappers(shot)or killed. I pray that is family can get some solace in that, that he died of somewhat naatural causes. I love his music and his voice, and now him and sleprock is gone. to Alvin and Nate Rest in Peace.

R.I.P., Nate Dog. Your music, to this day, invokes nastalgic feelings. May God bless your friends, family, and fans.

But I got to admit that this comment is funny:
"You never should have tried the drug "CHARLIE SHEEN" Charlie warned you on what would happen."
