“It is a work of art, to say the least,” said Pamela Hale, Nate Dogg’s sister. “The design captures every part of who my brother was, his music, his city, his style – even his military service.”

Designed by Tim Morris, also known as Cemetery Tim, the headstone features several different photos of Nate Dogg and includes lyrics from his song “Music & Me.”

“He is missed by so many and the music world lost a gift,” she said. “But his legacy will continue in his music. It’s an honor to call a great talent my little brother.”
