Hip-hop singer Nate Dogg, who along with Snoop Dogg and Warren G is credited with crafting the blend of singing and rapping now known as G-funk, has died. He was 41.

Nate Dogg, who was born Nathaniel D. Hale, died Tuesday at a Laguna Niguel care facility of complications from multiple strokes, said his attorney, Mark Geragos.

By lending his gruff baritone vocals to ubiquitous hooks on hits by Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg and Warren G, Nate Dogg rose to prominence along with the West Coast rap scene that was brewing in the early 1990s.
