    Re: white_is_ugly – Alright, asswipe, it's a joke. Nate Dogg is pretending to be dead. He is actually alive. Yeah, he thought that being black was ugly so he went to some Asian country where being white is right and got his skin bleached. He is in hiding while he turns white. He knows that you think being white is ugly so he's in hiding for your sake. LOL Buh bye, Nathaniel Dwayne. Hello, whitey! No one will miss this asshole except his 4,973 baby mommas who want their child support check on the 1st.
    PS Who the fuck has 2 strokes in their 30's? A non-white asshole, that's who.
    LOL Nate Dogg is Nate Dead, you racist motherfucker!

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – smh you always bring race up, if it aint obama oops srry according to you "BARRY" then it's any none redneck who is successful. lmao god your life is sooo sad.

  17. 17

    Re: Blunt – You fucking racist son of a bitch! No mention of the motherfucking asshole here whose moniker is "white_is_ugly", you fucking asshole! I liked Nate Dogg. White_is_ugly ruined his death
    for me. I'm not going to mourn his death when asshole "fans" of his
    are being racially insensitive.
    Speaking of Barry, I can't remember a time in the last 20 years when shit in America was so racially heated. It started when Barry the racist was in the race for prez. Look at those videos with the chicks talking about Asians recently. Lotsa comments! Thanks, Barry! You are the great divider :)

  49. 49

    Can we just focus on his death and not on whatever is going down below with some of the comments. Anyways RIP Nate I know your death is a big loss to the hip hop community and I always had the utmost respect for you as an artist.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – I did'nt call you retared I said what you said was. Fine your just a fuckin idiot. BETTER!!!

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – Wasn't "Eldridge Cleaver" an American (Black)? Oh well, every Dogg has his day. He will be mist. I was reading about the unity and order the Japanese people have demonstrated to the rest of us. It was because they are of one ethnicity\one mind. We as Americans can show the rest of the world what hypocrites we all are. The statue of Liberty invites all, but the citizens of a certain age build walls around their lives. Once we become "color-blind", we can all mourn Nate Dogg as just a man that died too young.

  53. 53

    so sad. i still cant believe it. i grew up listening to him he had one of the best voices i used to fall in love with it. hope he is doing better where he may be at. R.I.P Nate Dogg. and much condolences to his family and friends.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – oh yeah, this:
    "No one will miss this asshole except his 4,973 baby mommas who want their child support check on the 1st."

    that's not racist? (besides being completely rude and uncalled for–the guy is dead you fucking troll) stfu you dumbass bitch.

    Re: Winnie Ramos – How the fuck is saying his 4,739 baby mommas a racist comment? It isn't, moron. Charlie Sheen is a whore who has 5 children from his 3 baby mommas. I could have made the same comment about Charlie Sheen and you wouldn't have said a fucking thing because you can't be racist if you talk shit on white people. Only talking shit on brown skinned people makes you a racist, right?
