Review Summary: One of the greatest of a long list of losses for hip-hop and r'n'b.

0 of 4 thought this review was well written

RIP Nate Dogg- 1969-2011

It’s an interesting point in history for hip-hop. After a few years in which untalented, flowless, auto-tuned sellouts were able to flourish, talented meaningful flows and inspired choruses are making a comeback. Perhaps best indicated by the immanent release of the 11-years-in-the-making Detox, or the recent triumph of progressive mainstream hip-hop via Kanye West, a key hip-hop revival is on its way.

But the revival of what? The great R’n’b/Hip-Hop singer. Not like Akon. Not like Usher. Like Nate Dogg, who sadly passed away earlier this month. Having sung on such classic hip-hop tracks as ‘The Next Episode’, Nate’s position in the hall of hip-hop fame was clearly set out for him. Even if his greatest achievement, 2001’s ‘Music and Me’ continues to be overlooked.

I Got Love
The catchy, Bink! produced r’n’b number is slow and infectious. Dogg lays out his vocal ability for the world to see, alongside solidifying his already untouchable reputation. 10/10

Backdoor
The pace doesn’t pick up from the slow r’n’b of ‘I Got Love’ but the addition of a brass section warms the track, but does little to distract from the fact that this track is not more than a development of the previous track. 7/10

Keep It G.A.N.G.S.T.A. 7/10

I Pledge Allegiance 8/10

Your Woman Has Just Been Sighted 6/10

Your Wife
The Dre Produced number features a classic beat and has the chilled feel of other Dre songs, which, combined with an amazing delivery from the producer and Nate, makes the track brilliant. 10/10

Another Short Story 6/10

Concrete Streets 7/10

Real Pimp 7/10

Ditty Dum Ditty Do
The fact that this song is under the name ‘Nate Dogg’ means nothing. Snoop Dogg makes the track with this flawless flow. 10/10

Music And Me 7/10

The quality of this album outlines the fact that the death of Nathaniel Dwayne Hale was not just a tragedy in the sense that a man died age 41- it is a tragedy for music.

7.7/10

R.I.P.

I would recommend you not do track by track reviews, but if you're gonna do it, then do it. You can't write a description for some tracks and just a rating for others.

There isn't an excuse for a review this lackluster. Try to put some effort into it next time. I realize you're probably just doing this to "honor" Nate Dogg, but this isn't how you do it.

It's a first review, but still this isn't even close to anything that could be considered well-written.

the criticism is fair enough actually, this is my first review and I was simply testing out a format before resubmitting it elsewhere. I'm sorry to any Nate Dogg fans I may have offended.

1) Don't make track by tracks
2) talk more in depth about the actual music
3) Don't rate individual songs
4) Don't mention shitty performers like Akon and Usher when you are reviewing a respected hip-hop entity

Just my 2 cents.

don't mind that if he makes good music aside from that

and also recently his output has been solid. C4 singles both destroy

Not a good review even for a first. You need to describe the actual music rather than just a brief outline of the artist. Plus if you are gonna do a track by track then at least write something about each track in detail

Plus if you are gonna do a track by track then at least write something about each track in detail

this is correct if you're gonna do a track by track, but you shouldn't
