I was transitioning from high school to college when one of the hottest (in my opinion) songs featuring Nate Dogg was poppin’. The song was Regulators.   I remember vividly about 20 of us riding to U Mall (Chapel Hill, NC) and bumping Regulators over and over again.  Sweet memories.  I was saddened to hear that Nate Dogg died last night. Check out the story from HOTHIPHOPDETROIT.COM below.

Twitter is a buzz with news that Nathaniel D. Hale, known in the music industry as Nate Dogg, died Tuesday, his family announced.

The rap star, born and reared in Long Beach, Calif. was 41.

Cause of death is not known. However, Hale had suffered two strokes, one in 2007 and another in 2008.
