Droves of family and friends said their goodbyes to recently-deceased singer Nate Dogg yesterday (March 26).
MTV News covered the event, providing footage from outside the service. Among the attendees were Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, DJ Quik, Warren G, Kurupt, Mack-10 and WC.
“1986, Poly High School, that’s where we connected for the first time,” said Snoop Dogg at the sorrowful gathering. “We didn’t know each other, but the music connected us. We built a brotherhood, a friendship.”
“It hurts me so much to see this,” said Warren G, with whom Nate famously recorded “Regulate.” “We been through a whole lot and that was my dog. He stayed down with me from the bottom to the top. I didn’t ever think I would have to sit at a funeral for one of my dogs. All I can say is that was my friend, me him and Snoop was 213 from the balls to the walls. The music industry lost an incredible artist.”
“He was a loving caring individual,” added Snoop. “If you listen to his music, he took church melodies and flipped it with hip-hop. I’m so honored, so happy that you gave me the opportunity, God, to know Nate Dogg. I want to stand here and cry, but I have to have the strength for you Nate Dogg. It’s 213, DPG for life.”
