2 Questions Regarding Nate Dogg’s last 2 Albums
« on: October 24, 2020, 02:40:28 AM »
Question #1: Why did Warren G appeared on Nate’s Music & Me album?
It was a schedule problem? Label Issues?
I liked this album alot, i dont know how this didnt even went gold

Question #2: Why Nate Dogg’s self-tittled album never got released on CD?
I heard that it was released Digitally back in 2003?
But, never heard of it.
Never understood why they didnt released this, it was a good project with a few weak tracks.

Question 2 may have been because Elektra Records was going through a shuffle and got bought out or merged with Atlantic in 2004.

Question #1: Why did Warren G appeared

"did not" i guess

No reason, i suppose. Moreover, Nate appeared on Warren G's LP ("The Return...") that was released a week later.

Yeah, i think it was around the time Busta had problems with the label too.

I was looking to the Dogg Pound’s album Cali Iz Active(dnt remember if it was the album or just the single)
But, there were 2 “Nate Dogg collabo’s” but when i heard the songs they were just a few adlibs and background vocals.
I cant understand that, back in 2004/2005 Nate was on fire.
The fact Nate didnt make a big collabo on that album is kinda shocking

I would say no reason too, artistic choice. When Nate was doing some tracks for some other's people albums some deals were to include a featuring back for Nate's album. That's why you have for example Ludacris, Fabolous, Pharoahe Monch, Dupri on this album.
It was Nate's shot with this album to shine more than G Funk Classics vol 1 & 2 that came out after Death Row's downfall on Breakaway Records and did confidential sales numbers. So I guess the strategy this time was to have big names on that album opposed to do an album with his homies as G Funk classics.

Nate said in a Big Boy's interview that for his features, when he was particularly hot, there was a regular price and for his homies a "family price" as he said. That's why during that era indeed you have less DPG collaborations with Nate.

I remember him saying every one got the same price
It sucks though, songs with JD & Ludacris were weak, also Dre song was just ok.
Also, they released 2 singles? (I Think?) I Got Love OG & Remix had videos of im not mistaken.
Concrete Streets, Music & Me and Ditty Dum Ditty Doo shouldve been singles.
They didnt promote the album properly. It was a good chance to go platinum.

No no. Regular price and DPG price. 100% sure. Just catch the interview. It was with Julio G, no Big Boy, I made a mistake in my original statement. KDay interview.

Oh ok, i gotta check it out

Still dont understand why DPG didnt make a single with Nate.
It wouldve been good for tha Dogg Pound.

Cali Iz Active lacked elements that make em great back in the 90’s.
Rage, wasnt part of it not even Dre.
Warren couldve dropped a productiob there.
