Was It Disrespectful To Include A Nate Dogg Soundalike On Kush ?
« on: December 27, 2010, 09:50:59 PM »
Serious question...

The poor mans in a coma & Dre thinks it's a good look to emulate Nate Dogg on his new song  ???
I mean... at least Dre should make some contribution to The Nate Dogg Fund. Which is doubtful, as Warren G has to make Youtube videos asking for moolah. If Snoop was out of commission would it have been accepted to have some "fugazi Snoop" such as Top Dogg appear on his track ? If you use someone else's style don't they deserve a shoutout or "Get Well" ?

Not disrespectful.

Dre is trying to make an album, has a lead single, he can't be shouting out people on it.

If anything, it was in honor of Nate.

& you wouldn't see a fake Snoop do an entire verse like Snoop, unless it was Dre doing one of those imitation verses like Game on "Never Say Goodbye".

Surely his name could have been dropped in one of the verses.  ;)
If indeed it was in honor of Nate.

I meant it in a more subliminal way. Knowing todays group of kids, they probably don't even know who Nate Dogg is lol.

I wouldn't be surprised if he gives Nate love on at least one bar on all of Detox. :P

if ANYTHING it's a HUGE honor & a respectful way of paying homage to a west-coast icon that otherwise couldn't perform himself.
anyone thinking of or pandering to the contrary is a "Bitch Nigga"... 8)

The West Coast Lost Alot Of Flavour When Nate Had Those Strokes....

Not disrespectful. Rap is all about imitation and duplication, taking someone else's idea and expanding on it -- that's how slang gets spread around and rap is full of sampling tracks from the past.

First comes Nate Dogg then Akon, Trey Songz, T-Pain, and now Drake has the throne and before Nate it was Marvin Gaye.  One thing about rap is it's funny how people think they can't be replaced just go drive by the cemetary.

It's a compliment to Nate's signature sound . He is one of Dre's usual suspects . Dre needs Nate or he is not doing Dre music . I bet Nate knows what's up .

Do you want to wait longer for Detox to come out? I'm sure dre could have waited for Nate to get better.

Smh at people thinking it's disrespect, Dre was basically paying homage
You expect me to download an album that isn't real?  Sorry, but I can't sign this.

Of course it's not disrespectful... If Dre wanted to disrespect Nate Dogg he would've dissed him, lol.

What would be the point of raising funds for Nate Dogg? The man's living like a plant, not a dime is gonna change that.

Nate had 2 strokes, it's sad to say but he probably would never sing, live a normal life again. I mean let's be realistic, he had his last stroke 2 years ago and he still can't talk, move his arms and legs.
A Dre album without Nate is gonna be weird. But Dre could have used old vocals, but i don't think that's Dre's method.

I don't think it's disrespectful, but i hope they'll give him a shout out in another song or in the booklet..

What was really FUCKED UP was the "underdog" song, labeled and promoted as a Nate Dogg one, when it was obvious that fans would recognize that it wasn't Nate! That was DISRESPECTFUL!!
