Throwback: Happy Belated 54th Birthday, Nate Dogg!

The past few days have been rather auspicious ones in music history:

  • Isaac Hayes was born 81 years ago on August 20
  • KRS One celebrates his 58th birthday on August 20

Nate Dogg, the undisputed king of hip-hop hooks was born 54 years ago on August 19. While we tragically lost him at the way too young age of 41, let’s remember his legendary and memorable contributions to hip-hop — and to popular music as a whole.

Happy birthday, brother! Happy birthday, wherever you are!
