RIP Nate Dogg...

I think TMZ needs a hip hop historian/expert (I volunteer)...you guys have 2 pictures of Warren G (along with one of Nate) that says R.I.P. I know all blacks look alike to some (NOT), but at least get the right pictures up...I'm sure Warren G is not happy seeing himself "memorialized" before his death.

Shocking news. Didn't even know he was sick. Terrible news, just terrible. Shows us how truly fragile life really is. Live each day as if it's the last. Never know - it just might be. Dang! Just Dang! Things don't matter, people do. Just shocked, right now. Say what you want to say about Nate Dogg, I've never met him but I've heard that he was a really nice guy and that unlike a lot of these stars out there, he was really cool to anyone who walked up to him. I have to agree with lots of people here though - he had a really nice flow. Nice pipes. RIP Nate! Gone too soon!
