We all woke up to the horrible news that famous crooner Nate Dogg passed away late last night. Immediately I looked for Snoop’s reaction, someone who is not only from the same area (thus inevitably has rubbed shoulders with him more than once) but was a frequent collaborator with Nate…and both were instrumental in putting California on the map with hip-hop and R&B in the 90’s. Read what Snoop said after the jump and of course, RIP once again Nate Dogg. Another great one gone way too soon.
