Nate Dogg's Attorney Confirms Cause Of Death, Releases Statement

Mark Geragos, Nate Dogg's Attorney, confirms that Nate died due to complications from multiple strokes and also expresses gratitude for the condolences from fans.

After soul crooner Nate Dogg passed away Wednesday, his attorney, Mark Geragos, confirmed that the original 213 member and frequent Death Row Records collaborator died from complications from multiple strokes. Nate suffered at least two strokes in 10 months, which left him partially paralyzed; the first one reportedly happened between December 2007 and January of 2008. Geragos confirmed that Nate was making significant progress having fully recovered his memory.

In September of 2010, Warren G gave fans an update saying Nate Dogg was undergoing therapy and fully alert and aware. As such, Wednesday’s news came as a shock, causing an outpouring of sympathy and condolences for Nate and his family. Nate Dogg’s close friend and manager, Rod McGrew, issued a statement to all the well-wishers.

“We appreciate the enormous outpouring of response from all over the world. We greatly appreciate that and thank everyone for their prayers and support. We know that Nate will be hanging out with his good friends 2Pac and Biggie.”
