Throwback Thursdays #4 – Nate Dogg

Nate Dogg was the king of G-Funk and vocal soul behind west coast gangster rap.  Born in Clarksdale, Mississippi, he moved to Long Beach, California at the age of 14. He grew up with friends in the rap game such as  Warren GRBXDaz Dillinger, and was cousins of Butch CassidySnoop Dogg and Lil’ ½ Dead. His singing began as a child in a church where his father was pastor, but his singing career picked up once he made the notorious rap trio “213”.  The sweet but oh so gangster timbre of his voice was the backbone of hit songs of numerous artists such as
