Huffington Post reports:

Nate Dogg is dead, according to a report in his hometown Long Beach Press Telegram, which cited a family announcement.

Friend and collaborator Snoop Dogg appeared to confirm the news by tweeting, “RIP NATE DOGG” and later “We lost a true legend n hip hop n rnb. One of my best friends n a brother to me since 1986 when I was a sophomore at poly high where we met.”

TMZ says they have confirmed the report but did not indicate how.

Read the full report and check back for updates.

I dig Nate Dogg.  He was the most (unintentionally) funny background star in gangsta rap.  His juicy, and completely  horribly offensive-yet-gently sung backing lyrics to Dr Dre & Snoop Dogg songs almost always have me in stitches.  He will be missed.
