RIP Nate Dogg. Nobody Did It Better

FUCK.

I just went to my favorite rap website and dropped a tear.

Hip-Hop's Hookman, the greatest to ever do it, is dead.

I can't believe it.

He was the fucking greatest.

I remember where I was the first moment I heard his voice (Penmon, my bedroom, about 7pm, aged 13,  overjoyed and awed at such rude melody).

He made every beat he blessed sing.

Nobody touched a mike with melody like Nate Dogg. He was so fucking cold.

The classic West Coast trilogy, G Funk Era, Doggystyle and The Chronic would have been unrecognizable without Nate.

213's The Hard Way is one of the most criminally slept on albums of all time. As is his solo album, Music And Me.

Maybe they'll get some shine now.

In the meanwhile, remeber this stone cold fucking fact:

Nobody Did It Better.
