Regulators, Mount Up

I felt the passing of Nate Dogg deserved a little more space on this blog than just a Song of the Week.

First of all, did anyone know his name was Nathaniel Hale? Was his only regret that he had but one life to give for Warren G?

Nate Dogg had suffered from ill health for several years after a couple of strokes. But the cause of death was not immediately known.

His biggest hit was of course "Regulate" which was immortalized in this hilarious literal interpretation of the song's meaning.

"Soon, both friends are driving with automobiles full of women to the East Side Motel, presumably to consummate their flirtation in an orgy."

Other Nate Dogg hits:
The Next Episode - Dr. Dre

21 Questions - 50 Cent

Area Codes - Ludacris

And my favorite
Oh No - Mos Def

I agree, I never saw that before, fantastic! BTW, I did know his name was Nathaniel Hale, although I had no idea he had strokes & health issues.

You know the intro clip from Regulators is from the movie Young Guns right? I only bring it up because that's not your style of movie, so maybe you never saw it.
