Long Beach, California had a rough day. A small-engine plane crash killed five and critically injured a sixth. Also, Long Beach native and rap legend, Nate Dogg, died of complications from a previous stroke at the age of 41. For better and worse, he was a part of the soundtrack of my youth. He remained active and relevant even until his death.
Mark Bixby, a victim of the plane crash, was a member of one of the founding families of Long Beach. Nate Dogg was a member of one of the founding families of the g funk gangsta rap era. Their respective tragedies are a study in contrast that is the dichotomy of Long Beach itself.
Life is strange. Regulators, mount up.
