Posted by on March 16, 2011

This is a tragic loss for the music industry. I remember the good old days when Gmoney and I would blast Nate Dogg tracks as we cruised to school like gangsters. In fact it wouldn’t be a stretch to say he was an inspirational factor that led to the creation of FNT… I’ll let HipHopDX take it from here:

One of Hip Hop’s most iconic voices Nate Dogg passed away last night at the age of 41.

Hip Hop suffered another loss late last night, as Long Beach, California news site reports that Nathaniel “Nate Dogg” Hale has died at the age of 41.

Although no official cause of death has been announced, the former Death Row alum suffered from two strokes, his most recent one in September 2008.

A number of artists have confirmed Nate’s passing via Twitter, including long-time friend and frequent collaborator Snoop Dogg.

WTF, is this real life? A 5 foot 8 high school student with braces dunks on a 6 foot 8 defender! Don’t waste your time trying to find this kids jet boosters because I spent 30 minutes doing just that. I need more info on this kid. In other news, Suge Knight’s storage unit was auctioned off on A&E’s “Storage Wars”. That’s humiliating. Full article can be found at HipHopWired:

As previously reported, the Death Row Records head had a number of his items sold at auction in February by the owner of ‘Conejo Valley Moving & Storage’ who said he owed him money.
Similarly, Knight’s items were seen being sold on the premier of A&E’s “Storage Wars.”
The auction was said to be successful making $4,500 dollars in 30 minutes off Suge’s property including furniture, clothing, appliances and gym equipment.
