Nate Dogg Laid To Rest
Nate Dogg was buried in true hip-hop style on Saturday as rappers Snoop Dogg, Warren G and The Game all turned out to pay their respects.
The 41 year old died earlier this month after a long battle with ill health and the singer was laid to rest in a star-studded funeral in his native Long Beach, California.
His cousin Snoop Dogg and childhood pal Warren G were among the rap royalty who flocked to the event and both read eulogies.
In his reading, Snoop said, "He was a loving, caring individual. 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."
Thousands of fans also attended a memorial for the late Regulate star in the city following a public viewing of his body in California on Friday.
