R.I.P Nate Dogg

LOS ANGELES – Singer Nate Dogg, whose near monotone crooning anchored some of rap's most seminal songs and helped define the sound of West coast hip-hop, has died at age 41.
Attorney Mark Geragos said Nate Dogg, whose real name was Nathaniel D. Hale, died Tuesday of complications from multiple strokes.
Nate Dogg wasn't a rapper, but he was an integral figure in the genre: His deep voice wasn't particularly melodic, but it's tone — at times menacing, at times playful, yet always charming — provided just the just the right touch on hits including Warren G's "Regulate," 50 Cent's "21 Questions," Dr. Dre's "The Next Episode" and countless others.
While Nate Dogg provided hooks for rappers from coast to coast, the Long Beach, Calif., native is best known for his contributions to the West Coast soundtrack provided by the likes of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Tha Dogg Pound and more. Nate Dogg was even part of a "supergroup" featuring Snoop Dogg and Warren G, called 213.
Nate Dogg also put out his own solo projects but was best known for his collaborations with others. He had suffered strokes in recent years.
Last year, Warren G said Nate Dogg was in therapy but needed help.
"Everybody just gotta keep him in their prayers, cause he had two strokes and that's real dangerous. And a lot of people don't come back from that," he said in an interview to HipHollywood. "Cause the game needs him, I need him."

Li-Ning has made their name here in the States with a combination of savvy marketing and wild aesthetics and this latest model presents the Chinese shoemaker with a chance to nail both. The Li-Ning MIX is something like Nike Presto and DiamondFLEX technologies combined, but instead of some kind of hybrid trunner, these take the mashup theme even further by allowing you to disassemble the shoe into its constituent bootie, sole and cage components. Presumably, you could swap out different pairs to make your own unique colorways, though we can’t help but think it’d be dope were they to offer the option to purchase the parts individually.
