West Coast hook legend Nathaniel "Nate Dogg" would have been 52 birthday
Today (August 19), Nate Dogg would've been 52 years old, and while he was only 41 when he passed away, the rap hook-singing legend continues to live on through the two decades of music he created. For years, Nate was the best R&B feature around, sure to bring a mixture of catchiness and stellar, one-of-a-kind songwriting.
