Paying final respects to their late loved one, thousands of mourners turned up for the funeral of Nate Dogg (Nathaniel Dwayne Hale) in Long Beach, CA on Saturday (March 26).
With the proceedings taking place at Queen Mary Dome, attendees saying their goodbyes to the rap star included fellow hip-hop hitmakers such as Snoop Dogg, Warren G and The Game.
With a public viewing having been held at New Hope Baptist Church the previous evening, the burial comes after Nate Dogg passed away on March 15th at the young age of 41-years-old due to complications from multiple strokes.
At the New Hope event, Nate's sister, Pamela Hale-Burns, told MTV that the place of worship was where her brother got his musical start.
Hale-Burns said, "Singing is something that we grew up doing, and I'm just glad to know that my brother was able to do what he loved. I said earlier that he chose a career where he never worked a day in his life, because he loved doing what he did."
