According to a few sources Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg are bringing back to life some special guests at this weekend’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival: The late G-funk legend Nate Dogg, and rapper Tupac Shakur, who was gunned down in 1996, will also be resurrected by using holographic technology to bring their deceased collaborator back from the dead.
Joining them will be plenty of surprise guests like Eminem, Wiz Khalifa, and Nate Dogg’s partner in regulation, Warren G.
YouTube is streaming Coachella concerts live for the second year in a row. You can learn more about that here.
Continuing to keep the late great Nate Dogg alive in spirit, Warren G is set to release an EP with Nate Dogg. Before the passing of Nate Dogg, he and Warren G did an entire album. The EP will have features from The Game, B.o.B and many more artists that have yet to be named. You can expect this project sometime during this summer. Below is what Warren G had to say about the EP and Nate Dogg’s versatility.
“Nate wasn’t just a hook man, he was a songwriter too,” he remembers. “He was just incredible. Back in the day I had seen how he could captivate the crowd when he sang. We’d be in the hood and he’d sing and everybody would just melt. I was like, ‘Nate, let’s go and let’s work, let’s make it happen and be successful.’ And we did that.”
During Mos Def‘s set at the Springfest 2011 on USC’s campus, he payed a tribute to the late great Nate Dogg by performing the classic “Oh No“. Gone but never forgotten, Hip-Hop artist(s) keeps Nate’s spirit alive every chance they get.
Last week, West Coast legend Nate Dogg passed away and Snoop Dogg is one of the many people who is putting forth a tremendous effort to keep Nate Dogg’s spirit alive. Above is a tribute video of “Nobody Does It Better” put together by Snoop himself. It doesn’t stop there, Snoop has also put together a trust fund for Nate Dogg. The trust fund is set up to help out Nate’s children and family. All of the proceeds donated to the trust fund will go directly to them.
