Terrible news. His hooks will definitely be missed, but he made his mark. The work he did with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Warren G and Tha Dogg Pound will always be remembered as some of the best west coast rap ever made.

I'm not going to lie, I shed some tears. It hurts when someone you;ve followed closely for almost 2 decades passes on.
as its too soon for any tribute songs from Dre, DPG, Warren G or Snoop I think some tribute songs Nate was involved in would be fitting
How Long Will They Mourn Me by Tupac/Thug Life & Nate Dogg
I believe this song was for Tupac's half brother Mopreme
Why by Nate Dogg
This was his tribute to Tupac, both have passed far too young
I also want to say that without Nate Dogg hip-hop wouldn't be the same. Regulate was the biggest reason it became acceptable to have R&B/Rap hybrid songs and artists. Without Regulate being such a success we might never have been blessed with classics like "You're All I Need" by Method Man and Mary J. Blige. Or successful artists like Nelly may have never gotten a second look from the major labels. And more currently you can bet someone like Drake wouldn't be what he is without Nate Dogg paving the way. Nate Dogg is the greatest hookster in hip-hop history and single handedly changed the game.
