Warren G is set to release an album tribute to Nate Dogg.
The ‘I Got Love’ rapper Nate – who performed with Snoop Dogg and Eminem and recorded ‘Regulate’ with Warren – tragically died in March after suffering two strokes in recent years, and Warren is set to honor his name in the best way a rapper can.
Warren – who has already released song ‘This Is Dedicated To You’, with proceeds set to go to Nate’s family – has revealed plans to release his tribute album in the summer, full of songs the pair recorded together that were never released.
He told ‘MTV News’:
“He was just incredible. Back in the day I had seen how he could captivate the crowd when he sang. We’d be in the hood and he’d sing and everybody would just melt. I was like, ‘Nate, let’s go and let’s work, let’s make it happen and be successful.’ And we did that.”
Let’s hope the album attracts plenty of interest to honor Nate’s life.
