Hip-hop lost a genius late Tuesday, when Nate Dogg passed away from causes unknown in Long Beach, Calif. Maybe the man upstairs needed this OG, who was 41 and had suffered strokes in 2007 and '08, to sing hooks in the choir.
Meanwhile, Nate's work here on Earth will live on in hip-hop history books. While Nate Dogg showcased his smooth, mellow crooning on Dr. Dre's The Chronic and numerous Dogg Pound songs, it was his hook duty on Warren G's "Regulate" that solidified him as a superstar.
But Nate Dogg's body of work couldn't be reduced to one hit single. Here are seven other great songs that featured vocals from the king of G-funk hooks.
