Nate Dogg Paralyzed After Stroke
West Coast singer Nate Dogg is paralyzed on his left side after suffering a stroke on December 19. The former Death Row artist -- known for contributing vocals to Warren G's 'Regulate' and Dr. Dre's 'Next Episode' -- is currently in Los Angeles occupational rehabilitation facility.
According to Nate's rep, Rod McGrew, the singer is expected to make a full recovery. "Time will tell everything, obviously. The doctor can only guess what the outcome will be," McGrew told MTV. "But based on situations with similar people his age, and based on his health, the prognosis is good right now."
McGrew claims Nate is already making progress and regaining strength since his hospitalization.
"On behalf of Nate, he would like to thank all of the well wishers, both friends and fans," McGrew said. "He appreciates it deeply, and he plans on fully recuperating and getting back in the studio."
