My Top 5 Fave Nate Dogg Joints

  • Mar 16, 2011

As one of the founding fathers of the G-Funk era, Nate Dogg stated off in 213 with Snoop Dogg and Warren G. They recorded their first demo in the back of the VIP record store in Long Beach. Dr. Dre later heard it at a house party, impressed with Nate's soulful voice, and he would make his debut on Dre's The Chronic. Nate Dogg passed away on March 15, 2011- and we lose yet another golden voice in hip-hop music. Here is my list of my favorite Nate Dogg songs.
Ooh Wee

This is one of my all-time favorite hip-hop songs. I love the beat and it is a perfect song to put on for getting ready for the night. I wish that these three had done more songs together because this is a perfect hip-hop combo to me: fun beat, upbeat lyrics, live funky instrumentals...what more could you want?

When you mention either Warren G or Nate Dogg, you will automatically hear "REGULATOOOOOOORS, mount up" the intro to this song. This song will forever be linked to those two and to this era of hip-hop. It is rare that you go to an old skool night at a club without hearing Regulate. This song is so smooth which is Nate Dogg's style through and through.

I Got Love

A perfect example of G-Funk, this song has the funky beats and Nate Dogg's smooth lyrics. I love any song with flutes and if you put flutes in hip-hop, I'm an automatic fan. This is a great song to show people that are not big fans of hip-hop to show how versatile it truly is as a musical genre.

Music & Me

Another great example of the G-Funk style that Nate Dogg helped make so popular because without his vocals, it would've just been another hip-hop song without that funky flavor. This is a great head bopper and it reminds me of the lowriders that used to roll around in 90s hip-hop videos with hydraulics.


Originally written for 2Pac's passing, I felt that this was an appropriate addition to add onto the end of this list. "Why did my homie have to die/With the tears in my eyes/I came to say goodbye/Say goodbye." R.I.P Nate Dogg.

What did you think of this list?
