Snoop Dogg Establishes Memorial Fund for Nate Dogg
By Maggie Coughlan

Snoop Dogg has established a memorial trust fund for the family of late hip-hop star Nate Dogg.

According to Snoop’s website, the trust “has been set up for expenses of services and the financial security of Nate’s children. 100% of all donations will be given to Nate Dogg’s family.”

Nate Dogg (born Nathaniel Hale) passed away earlier this month at just 41 from complications resulting from multiple strokes. The late singer was plagued with health issues for several years, and it has been reported he suffered strokes in both 2007 and 2008.

Snoop Dogg, who first collaborated with Nate Dogg in the early ’90s, took to Twitter to express his heartbreak over his friend’s death. “I am so sad but so happy I got to grow up wit u and I will c u again n heaven cuz u know d slogan all doggs go to heaven yo homie n baby brotha bigg snoopdogg!!” he wrote.

Donations to the Nate Dogg Memorial Fund can be made online via PayPal, by postal mail or in person. More details can be found at Snoop Dogg’s website.

After going to SXSW and registering so much material, there are about 100 other artists I could be posting about. But, truthfully, the only one I’ve been listening to since touching down is the one headed to the Eastside Motel in the sky. An inspiring artist who expanded my palette and helped literally hundreds of artists succeed with his elegant G-Funk, Nate Dogg will be remembered more for the things he did for others, than the gems he did himself. One of his more prominent solo jams, however, was “Never Leave Me Alone,” a spiritual serenade with Snoop from his double-disc Death Row debut, G-Funk Classics Vol. 1 & 2.

Furthering the ongoing tribute to Nate and his music, Terrace Martin breaks out the sax and teams with LA pianist Kenneth Crouch to re-imagine the song via this video performance. Plus, Terrace shares a touching story showing how he not only was inspired by the man, but also how the LBC OG always had your best interests in mind.

“I’m am saden [sic] by the lost of my friend,brother,and teacher nate dogg we will all miss him .I remember going to nates house in woodland hills (it was the 1st time I have been in a house of that size over looking the whole valley) and I was saying to my self “wow he got all of this off of music.” At that time in my life I didn’t know music could do all that lol. I sat in his studio and played him like 29 beats and he could tell that I was amazed by him-his home-and his studio…so he turned to me and said “would you like a house like this?” Of course I said yes. Then he asked me how much I charge for beats, I told him $2,500 and he said in order to get a crib like this you need to move up to $15,000 a beat. At that time 15k was a lot to me! About a year later through God’s blessings I moved from moms crib to my own house on the same street as him. Around that that time we were working on the 213 album and I played Nate and Warren G the beat to the song that ended up being their “Joy Stick” single. Nate called me and asked how much I was going to charge them for the “Joy Stick” beat, I told him 15k…(why would I ever say that to him lol)…he then told me that the game he gave me to get my prices up to 15k actually costs 400k so let him get that beat and I will only owe him 385k lol. Nate if you hear me I’m siting in my car. On the side of the 118 in tears sending this to dev to post to let the world know that you were more than “nate dogg the hook man”…in my world you were and are a bleesing [sic] to and my kids and for that I will always love you and I will see you soon big bro and this small clip is for you Kenneth Crouch and I playing my favorite tune from you…neva leave me alone….Terrace Martin”
