URP Tuesdays -- March 15, 2010 -- Japan Love, RIP Nate Dogg

Before anything else, the Urban Renewal Project must encourage you to visit www.JapanLove.ca and help in any way you can. There are certain events that put things in perspective and make us realize the fortune we receive in comparison to other nations. Our donations go a long way.

As if the earthquakes weren't enough, we have just learned that Nate Dogg has passed away. Exact causes aren't known at this point but it's logical to assume the strokes he suffered within the last 4 years were a factor in the deterioration of his health. RIP Nathaniel "Nate Dogg" Hale (August 19, 1969 - March 15, 2011). He was only 41 years old.

We learned of Nate's passing partway through the show, so the only tunes that really mattered were the Nate Dogg jams... If for some reason you listen to us but don't know who he is, please google him. We shifted our focus towards an extensive Nate set as a tribute to an artist who was the definition of 'making your own lane'. His passing is a great tragedy that will be felt throughout the Hip-Hop community and beyond.

Stay tuned for the podcast to hear the set for yourself, until then, pop in your favourite DPG album and let it rock for Nate.
