To close out SXSW 2011, VIBE and Cashmere Agency helped pay tribute to legendary West Coast crooner Nate Dogg. The singer’s irreplaceable voice introduced the world to G-Funk music and will continue to influence generations of hip-hoppers.
Live from Venue 222 in Austin, Texas Warren G, DPG, Snoop Dogg and a host of other Cali spittas put it down for Nate until well after last call. The lineup that included the late singer’s original crew and closest friends celebrated his life with a medley of Nate Dogg’s most celebrated verses including tracks “Regulators”, “Xxplosive” and countless other Dogg Pound classics.
Before Warren and Kurupt hit the stage, VIBE spoke with the OGs on Nate’s legacy.
