It was the summer of 1994. The summer of Aaliyah. Two kids showed up on the music scene with a whole different vibe. We soon found out that one of them was Dr. Dre’s little brother and the other could sing his ass off. There was no escaping the sound of “Regulate” coming out of apartment windows, cars driving past, . . . Nate Dogg went on to do some of the best guest appearance on hip hop and R&B songs. My favorite being “Oh No” with Mos Def and Pharoahe Monch. Of course, how can we ever forget “HOLD UP! Heeeey all my . . .” on “The Next Episode” (He owned that song! And Xxplosive). RIP!
