R.I.P. Nate Dogg, Hip-Hop's Greatest Purveyor of Hooks and Choruses (With Bonus Videos!)

If you came of age between 1995 and 2005, it's hard to imagine you're unfamiliar with the late, great Nate Dogg (government name Nathaniel Hale), who passed away yesterday at the age of 41 after struggling with strokes suffered in 2007 and 2008. In his prime, he cornered the market on crooned hip-hop hooks, establishing himself as a serious contender for G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time, fool!) status.
