Hundreds of fans flocked to pay tribute to late hip-hop star Nate Dogg at a public viewing of his body in California on Friday.
The 41 year old died last week after a long battle with ill health and his loyal devotees were given a chance to say goodbye at the New Hope Baptist Church in his native Long Beach, California ahead of a planned funeral on Saturday.

Hundreds queued up outside the church as they waited to go inside and many left notes and tributes to the late star as they paid their last respects.

Nate Dogg’s family has made 1,000 tickets available for his funeral at the Long Beach Cruise Terminal, which will be followed later in the day by a memorial service.
