Hip-Hop Rumors: Did Snoop Dogg Abandon Nate Dogg Before He Died?

According to one of Nate Dogg’s close associates, Snoop Dogg, Warren G, and many of Nate’s high-rolling friends turned their back on the singer and refused to pitch in any money to help with his medical bills.

TMZ is reporting that Nate’s estate, along with his business partner David Michery, have lost a $300K lawsuit filed by CareMeridian, the medical facility where Nate lived from 2008 to 2010 after suffering a massive stroke. According to David,  “none of Nate’s so-called rapper friends” are stepping up to the plate to help.

“I was the only person who would come forward because I didn’t want him to die. Me and Nate have 20 years history together and I did what everyone should have done and tried to save his life … not let him get kicked out in the streets and die.”

David says he intends to pay the costs by releasing several never-before-heard Nate Dogg tracks that he claims he owns.

Warren G, who famously recorded “Regulate” with Nate, told TMZ:

“I rode with Nate ’til the end … I did what I could do for him with other things financially.”

“If I was able to pay for his hospital bill, I would have. I made several calls to numerous people for help. I love Nate … he’s my brother.”

So far, Snoop Dogg has not responded to the claims.  I hope Snoop can step up and help Nate’s family out. It sounds like they are in a lot of financial trouble.
