All Doggs Go To Heaven


Nathaniel "Nate Dogg" Hale was the quintessential go to man if you needed your track to reach beyond the stratosphere. From Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg to Ludacris to underground superstars Mos Def and Pharoahe Monch, Nate laced whatever track he was on with his
vocal baritone stylings and brought to the next level. In the past couple of years, his health was failing and he basically dropped off the scene. He finally succumbed to his ailments on March 15th but he'll always be remembered as a titan in the hip hop/r&b world. My most vivid memory of him was seeing him perform at the Up in Smoke tour at Giants Stadium around 2000. When Dre and Snoop performed their classic jam "Next Episode", and Nate Dogg came out? ...absolute pandemonium!!!!!
I recently got down with a global crew of beatmakers through a website called Weekly Beat Sessions . Every Tuesday, the growing roster of producers are sent an email with the “Sample of the Week” attached. Each producer has exactly six (6) days to chop up the sample and create a beat/instrumental that will be showcased the following Monday. A new BeatSession is posted every Monday by 11:59pm (Eastern Standard Time).
This week WBS decided to have a Nate Dogg tribute and the sample track was The Edge by David McCallum which Dr Dre used for "Next Episode". Posted below is my tribute called "Til The Wheels Fall Off". Rest in Power Nate Dogg you are 1 of 1.
