*It’s been a long time since Nate Dogg, known for his hook singing, has recorded a lyric.
In December 2007 and then again in September 2008, Nate suffered two massive strokes that left him partially paralyzed.
According to his good friend, Warren G, he is currently undergoing rehabilitation to simply learn basic motor skills including walking and talking.
“He’s getting good therapy and he’s pulling out of it,” he saidat the top of the year. Recently Warren G updated HipHipHollywood.com about the singer’s progress:
“Nate is in a lot of therapy right now. We actually got a website coming out where people can send donations,” Warren explained. “That’s gonna help out with him, help him get back on his feet. Plus us in the industry, we’re gonna do a lot to help out with him.”
At this point, it is unsure if he will ever come back to music and put the finishing touches on a song again. But folks in his corner are hopeful.
“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. “Luther Vandross did it, so hopefully Nate can do it. Cause the game needs him, I need him.”
We understand Warren’s concern and optimism for Nate Dogg, but he misspoke about about Luther Vandross. The second stroke is ultimately what killed him.
Unfortunately, at this time, info on the website where donations can be made, wasn’t not available.
