Rapper Nate Dogg, whose real name is Nathaniel D. Hale, tragically passed away on Tuesday (March 15)- more details/video here. The official cause of death has not been released or determined yet, but his family believes he died from complication stemming from the two strokes he suffered in 2007 and 2008.
Nate’s manager and good friend, Rod McGrew explained the rapper had almost completely recovered from the first stroke when he suffered the second, which left in paralyzed and caused partial memory loss.
However, Nate’s death was not expected since he was apparently making some incredible progresses. McGrew claims Nate had “cognitively fully recovered”.
McGrew just released a statement on his and the family’s behalf, saying:
“We appreciate the enormous outpouring of response from all over the world. We greatly appreciate that and thank everyone for their prayers and support. We know that Nate will be hanging out with his good friends 2Pac and Biggie.”
