Eminem Believes Nate Dogg Can't Be 'Replaced'


Speaking about the late Nate, the 'Love the Way You Lie' rapper praises the 41-year-old singer, saying 'Nate's voice in music will never be replaced'.

Rapper Eminem is the latest star to pay tribute to late pal Nate Dogg, insisting his former collaborator can "never be replaced". The 41-year-old passed away in Long Beach, California, in the early hours of Tuesday morning, March 15.

Hip-hop royalty including Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and Ludacris have already issued statements praising the rapper-singer and offering words of condolence. And now Eminem, who worked with Nate Dogg, real name Nathaniel Hale, on several tracks, has paid his own touching tribute.

"Nate's voice in music will never be replaced," he says in a statement to E! Online. "He helped create the blueprint for West Coast hip-hop, and I was one of the lucky people who had the privilege to work with him and the honor to have him as a friend. Nate will be sorely missed. My condolences and prayers go out to his family and loved ones."

The cause of Hale's death is not yet known but the hip-hop star spent the last few years struggling to recover from a series of strokes, which paralyzed him down the left side of his body.
