Memories. One day someone will lose “US” as well. LIVING until that day comes is our only option. All Dogg’s go to HEAVEN. This one hit home. NATE was just one of those people you don’t expect to hear about passing, so it makes it 10 x harder to accept. Nate Dogg – 2Pac – Eazy E – I wonder if HEAVEN gotta westside ? The city of #LostAngels is in tears.
