The Area Codes singer passed away in March, 2011, after suffering complications following multiple strokes, and now his boy Lil Nate Dogg, born Nathaniel Hale Jr., is following in his dad's musical footsteps by launching his first studio project.

Lil Nate Dogg has recruited his father's old collaborator, rapper Kurupt, and Cypress Hill's Sen Dog, among others, for Son Of A G, which features his new single West Coast Is Back.

Son Of A G will hit retailers in March (17) to mark the six-year anniversary of Nate Dogg's passing, reports
