Nate Dogg dies at 41

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.
