2 years ago today March 15th, my hometown Long Beach lost someone very close to us. This man was a Hip Hop legend. The special ingredient for any song. If the song was whack, he made it a hit. If the song was a hit, he made it hot. If the song was hot, he made it a classic. Starting his career as part of a trio called 213 with Snoop Dog, & Warren G, he went on to lay down classic vocals for Death Row and many other artist across the globe. Rest In Peace Nathaniel Dwayne Hale aka Nate Dogg (August 19th, 1969 – March 15th, 2011). Long Beach, the West Coast, and all of Hip Hop misses you and will always love you.
