It’s been four years since Nate Dogg tragically passed away, and he’s yet to be dethroned as the best hook man in hip-hop. Of course, Nate Dogg had hits himself and could more than hold his own (“I Got Love“), but his real talent lied in turning good records into great records with his silky smooth soul.
On Wednesday (November 18), Nate Dogg was the focus of TV One’s latest edition of Unsung. The 30-minute documentary not only explores Nate’s huge success and impact as an artist, but his life before — and beyond — music, from his gospel signing roots in Mississippi to his time in military school in Long Beach. It was in LBC were Nate met long-time friends and collaborators Snoop Dogg and Warren G and the rest, as they say, is history.
