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.

    It’s funny how these rappers waste thousands of dollars on strippers, clothes, jewelry,cars and houses but when it comes to saving and helping a friend out they turn their back smfh

    •  yo this world is fake fam these so called friends and family only care about themselves

      • NYCPeruano

      honestly you got it half right … they def spending thier money on the wrong things …. but they not turning thier backs on thier friends … its just by time something crazy like this happens … they already spent so much money on worthless shit that they dont have enough $$$$$$ to help a friend out ……. REAL TALK …… dont let the smoke and mirrors fool you … black cards = credit …. not cash money … most of these entertainers dont own shit  …. they have shit but the bank owns it and they cant pull out the black card to pay someone elses medical bill …… 300k is alot of money for anyone to just shell out like it aint gonna set you back … and most of these dudes got accountants …. who probaby dont say shit about the weed, stripper, cars, cloths and jewelry money …. but will speak out about that 300k you want to pull out to help a friend out ……………………………………

  • the question is why is Nates estate so fucced up??? why doesnt his estate have the bread???/ Nate is involved in more hits than both of those artists combined simply due to the fact hes on most of their hits and on a whole shit of other peoples hits …….it was a span of at least 2 years when Nate was on damn near every record  you heard  so why isnt his estate in better shape???????

    •  He never made a lot of money because he never had a hit record on his own

      • rep87

        HE was getting 35 % for all them hooks he was dropping on all the hits that came out of Death row and  we are sure Suge was ripping artist off

  • Warren G seemed like he was there until the very end; I remember him updating all of us on how Nate Dogg was doing, before he passed on. Nate definitely had hit records, it’s just how the industry goes with money. 

    The whole issue with Snoop, though…that does seem shady. Snoop didn’t seem to be around when Nate had his health issues. Maybe he has his reasons, I can’t say.

  • EVOLONE

    Suge somewhere spending some of  Nate Doggs money right now!

  • Rea; People do real things / Fake people do Fake Things!

    A couple of things. First you can’t have an estate if you don’t have assets, so there is some money, property or something of value that can be used to pay them bills. Secondly, where is the insurance policy? I can’t believe wouldn’t have some type of life insurance policy. And what about medical insurance, did he not have any? This sounds like somebody who doesn’t have all the facts speaking out of place. If this was being said by the family, then maybe I would believe it.

    So you stepped up because you didn’t want Nate to die?  Dude… he’s dead?  What are you saying?  

  • Montezuma1

    Stop begging. These dudes weren’t friends. Just opportunists. Nate should have handles his business. Money don’t come as easy as these dudes like to pretend. I’ll be damned if I sacrifice and save just to give it to people who don’t.
