Warren G is continuing Nate Dogg’s legacy by putting out some of the many unreleased songs the two recorded. The album will feature the fallen hip-hop hero, along with features from The Game, Cee Lo Green, B.o.B., E-40 and DJ Quik.
According to HipHopDX.com, Warren G revealed that Nate had been working on gospel music at the end of his career.
“He was a child of God and he was raised in the church. He had just started work with Gospel groups, he was getting into Gospel music and there wasn’t going to be no more ‘I got h***…’ [Nate Dogg’s chorus on Ludacris’s ‘Area Codes’] He was going to the church side of music. He brought people from the church to my studio and had them singing on one of my tracks. We didn’t finish it.”
Warren said the support about Nate’s passing has been “overwhelming,” though not all of the feedback has been easy to hear. “I actually read a comment that some dude said: ‘It took for your homeboy to die for you to make a classic record.’
No word on a release date, but will reportedly hit shelves this summer.
Nate Dogg died on March 15, 2011 from complications brought on by a series of strokes he suffered in 2007 and 2008.
