That surly twinkle in the eye, those cartoony tattoos, that two-tone hair—this model is most definitely West Coast rapper Kreayshawn! (Compare her tattoos above with those in the below photo, for extra proof.) She’s clearly come a long way since this photo, especially in terms of her body modifications, but we’d recognize this adorable thug anywhere. Read More

Nate Dogg died yesterday at 41; the cause of death has yet to be announced, although the rapper/singer suffered from strokes in 2007 and 2008. A Long Beach, California native, Nate Dogg is best known for his collabs with Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Tupac, Warren G, and Eminem and will forever be a voice of G-funk. In 1991, he formed the rap group 213 with both Snoop and Warren G and later Nate Dogg made his debut in Dr. Dre’s The Chronic.
