Nate Dogg, real name Nathaniel Dwayne Hale, was 41. The cause of his death is as yet unconfirmed.

Writing at Twitter.com/50cent, 50 Cent wrote: "RIP Nate Dogg, the rap world just lost a great legend. This is your time."

Ludacris, who Nate Dogg also collaborated with, tweeted from Twitter.com/ludacris: "There is a certain void in hip-hop's heart that can never be filled. Glad we got to make history together."
