Hundreds of family, friends and fans from across the world came to the New Hope Baptist Church yesterday to pay their respects to Nate Dogg, who passed away last week.

“What this means for me today is just to keep on striving, to keep on pushing the line that we set 20 years ago until now,” said Daz, who ended his tour to attend the service. “I’m just here to celebrate Nate Dogg’s life.”
