When it comes to collaborations, Nate Dogg runs with the big dogs.
And the baritone voice behind such hits as Dr. Dre’s “The Next Episode” and Warren G’s “Regulate” will continue to showcase his tag-teaming skills on his upcoming self-titled album, due February 25.
The follow-up to last year’s Music & Me will feature Nate Dogg swapping rhymes with the likes of Xzibit, Redman, Fabolous, Memphis Bleek, Freeway, Lil’ Mo, Knoc-Turn’Al, Shade Sheist and Ms. Jade.
Snoop Dogg, also appears, along with Armed Robbery, on a track called “I Got Game.”
“Get Up,” which features Eve, is the album’s first single, although the Hi-Tek-produced “I Need a Bitch” is getting some exposure on the mix play circuit.
Tek produced two tracks, as did Bink! and DJ Quik, who recorded “Get Up.” Rockwilder handled five tracks, while Timbaland, Damizza and Ricc Rude each did one.
Nate Dogg, who struggled with the law earlier in the year (see “Nate Dogg Sentenced For Drug Possession” ), is featured on WC’s new single “The Streets” (see “WC Holds Ghetto Olympics With Snoop Dogg And Nate Dogg” ) and recently scored a big hit with Fabolous’ “Can’t Deny It.”
