Nate Dogg apparently is still amongst the land of the living after suffering a stroke about 20 days -- his second in the last year according to TMZ.com. Some reports offered that Nate Dogg, biological cousin of rapper Snoop Dogg, had died. It wasn't true.
However, it is being reported in the media that Nate Dogg's cousin, a former rap artist Lil Half Dead, said Nate had been on life support at a Los Angeles-area hospital and was hooked up to a feeding tube. Nate is no longer on life support, but the feeding tube is still inserted, according to TMZ.
"He has suffered another stroke from his bad eating habits and unhealthy lifestyle," said Nate Dogg's cousin, Lil Half Dead, born Donald Smith. "All we can do now is pray for him."
