My heart is heavy. Hip-Hop has lost 1 of its most important voices. The one and only Nate Dogg. Words alone cannot commemorate Nate Dogg. Here’s a playlist that showcases just a few of his great contributions to rap music. His impact cannot be overstated.

From his start with 213 with Warren G and a young Snoop Doggy Dogg, through his work on The Chronic, through more features than can possibly be counted on some of hip-hop’s biggest records, Nate Dogg’s silky-smooth gangsta flow is synonymous with the sound that put the West Coast on the hip-hop map.  Sadly, after suffering 2 severe strokes in 2007 and 2008, he battled illness valiantly for the past 3 years and finally succumbed.  R.I.P. Nate Dogg.
