Warren G + Game Remember Nate Dogg in ‘Party We Will Throw Now’ Video
Veteran G-Funk producer Warren G pays homage to his late friend Nate Dogg with his new video ‘Party We Will Throw Now.’ The clip was released on Aug. 19 on what would have been the late crooner’s 43rd birthday.
Helmed by SkeeTV, the video features Warren G and fellow rapper Game spitting gangster lyrics in a warehouse surrounded by a bevy of hot models. The clip also includes footage of Nate Dogg from different videos he appeared in during his career. “Could nobody diss my n—a / Damn, I miss my n—a / Pour out a little liquor / Big Nate Dogg / N—a, 2-1-3 / From the city by the sea where them G’s ride,” raps Warren G.
Nate Dogg, who was the golden voice of the G-Funk Era, died in March 2011 after a long bout of health problems that included two strokes, one in 2007 and another in 2008. Nate (real name Nathaniel Hale) was buried in hometown of Long Beach, Calif., by his closest friends, including Snoop Dogg and Warren G.
“It hurts me so much to see this,” Warren told mourners at the funeral. “We been through a whole lot and that was my dog. He stayed down with me from the bottom to the top. All I can say is that was my friend, me him and Snoop was 213 from the balls to the walls. The music industry lost an incredible artist.”
Rest in peace, Nate Dogg.
