And while the coveted "King Of Hooks" title has been widely recognized to be Nate Dogg's honor, Ty Dolla $ign has long fielded praise of a similar nature. In fact, during a recent interview with Power 106, Ty actually revealed that Snoop deemed him to be "the reincarnation of Nate Dogg," a high honor from one of Nate's closest collaborators. 

"I feel blessed, I feel honored," says Ty. "Nate Dogg was carrying a huge torch and he passed it down. I just talked to my other homie, and he told me he talked to Snoop on his birthday, and Snoop said I was the reincarnation of Nate Dogg. When I heard that, I was like, alright, Snoop saying it? That means everything. Like I said, it's an honor and I feel blessed to carry that torch. It'll be passed on again. I just encourage for the next artist out there, be yourself -- be a one of one."
