Rapper and music producer Nate Dogg has died this week at the age of 41.  He came to prominence in the ’90s through his association with hip-hop megastars like Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, and Warren G.

His unique vocal style made him known even outside the realm of hip-hop, and he was well-respected in the music industry.  Nate’s health took a hit in 2007 when he suffered a heart attack and stroke.  As he recovered from the first stroke, a second stroke left him with paralysis and memory loss.  It is believed that his death was a result of complications from the two strokes.
