A month after the death of G-funk crooner Nate Dogg, his good friend and “Regulate” collaborator Warren G has offered up the tribute jam “This Is Dedicated To You.” The song, which is based around the mournful melody of the Eagles’ “Hotel California,” features LaToiya Williams (spelled as “LaToya” on the single cover) and is set to be added to iTunes tomorrow (April 26), according to Rap-Up.com. Hear Warren’s special dedication below.
“Reminiscing, memories, on my way to visit you in therapy / Hopin’ God will make it clear to me on what the plan is, this dirty game is hella scandalous / So this right here is dedicated to Nate,” West Coast MC Warren G raps on “This Is Dedicated To You.”
It’s great to hear the Long Beach rapper pay his respects to Nate Dogg, both of whom started out with Snoop Dogg in the group 213. We only wish “Boom” MC Snoop had made an appearance on this track as well.
Are you feeling Warren G’s musical epitath to his friend Nate Dogg?
