Old School Friday - Ain't A Hit Til Nate Dogg Spit

We're giving a little love to hip hop's greatest assist man: Nate D-O-Double G. Now just because Nate spit on a song didn't mean it was going to be a hit, necessarily, but he never made a song worse. If the song wasn't a hit, it wasn't his fault. He definitely had the Midas Touch when it came to other artists' tracks. When it came to his solo joints....not so much. But it's all good. Nate's spot in Cooperstown is on lock. On to the videos.

Luda feat Nate Dogg - Area Codes

This song is straight ignorant...but it is banging. I love it when people get excited when Luda calls out their area code. "Yeah, Luda know all about the 803." I'm like, "That dude ain't trying to hit no chicks in Columbia, SC." But I guess you gotta rep your hood. 912 up in this bitch!

Pharoah Monch feat Mos Def & Nate Dogg - Oh No

"You claim thug but go two ways without Skytel pagers."
Nate Dogg spitting on an east coast track? What? It definitely took me by surprise, as Nate was strictly a west coast maven up to this point. But, the combination mos def(initely) worked[I kill me]. By the way, can we send some love to Pharoah Monch? Dude is just too slept on for words.

Warren G - Game Don't Wait

REMIX!!! While the remix is an upgrade over the album version, I didn't think that version was all that bad. Waldini, on the other hand, would like to shit on the original, burn it, then bury it in the Dead Sea. Hey, to each his own.

Dr. Dre feat Snoop & Nate Dogg - The Next Episode

"Whooptee whoop. Nigga what!?!"
That shit still cracks me up eight years later. This is a situation where the song and the video are so simpatico, you'd have thought the song was written as a score to the visuals. Paul Hunter put his foot in this one. I also love the musical tag at the end of the video. Even Dre's throwaway beats are crucial.

Fabolous - Can't Deny It

Why are New Yorkers so proud of their chipped teeth? Is that a measure of gully-ness? Get that shit capped pimpin'.

Kurupt feat Roscoe & Nate Dogg - Girls All Pause

I dare you to keep from c-walking while listening to this track. I double dog dare you motherfucker!

Snoop feat Warren G, Kurupt, & Nate Dogg - Ain't No Fun

"I'm too swift on my toes to get caught up with you hoes."
Nope, this isn't an official video but this song brings back so many good memories. 12th grade was so much fun. Hard to believe that was 14 years ago.


Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up

You just got Rick Rolled! On the for real, this was my joint in 6th grade. Rick brought that "Ascot Pimpin'" to the game.

OK. How in the hell you leave off, Regulate? You slippin Gangsta D..... ya slippin. However, many, not in the know, sleep on Pharoah Monch was too much. He is very critical in the game. AS for Rick Astley, the vocals were excellent and the I'll never forget the black dude doing a backflip, sticking the landing and then doing the old school coon smile with the head cocked to side. Priceless.

K-Dawg Speakith!!!!!!!!

Man, you black folks ain't never happy! lol

Pharoah Monch is very critical. I think I shall be doing a "Slept On" column very soon.

"Regulate" is too obvious. He's trying to show us all that Nate Dogg's resume as the ultimate "hook" man is so vast, it can stand on it's own two feet even minus "Regulate".

Nate's cameo hooks put R. Kelly's to shame.
