A butter smooth vocalist from the LBC, Nate Dogg has been laying his trademark sound on G-Funk hits from the get-go. He sang the chorus on the proudly misogynistic but absurdly fresh "Ain't No Fun (If The Homies Can't Have None)" from Snoop's Doggystyle, and topped the charts with Warren G's breakout hit "Regulate" from the Above The Rim soundtrack. He continued working with assorted members of Tha Dogg Pound as well as Tupac, and recorded his solo debut in 1997. Due to legal dramas surrounding Death Row Records, the project was sat on, to be released the following year as G-Funk Classics Vol.1 & 2. He didn't set any sales records, but Nate's infectious inflections remained as nice as ever. He continued his reign as master of the hooks throughout the millennium, lending his unmistakable charm to many top ten hits. In 2001, Nate released his highly anticipated second LP Music & Me.
