New York: Hip-Hop star Nate Dogg has died at the age of 41, following several years of serious health problems.
The performer, Nathaniel Dwayne Hale, appeared on rapper-producer Dr. Dre’s best-selling hip-hop album ‘The Chronic’.
No cause of death has been released, but the star had survived strokes in 2007 and 2008.
Born in Long Beach, Calif., Hale began singing as a child in local churches. His song ‘Regulate’ with Warren G in 1994 helped propel him to mainstream success.
Hale sang on records by Eminem, 50 Cent, Ludacris, Snoop Dogg and others.
