Grammy Award winning singer Michael Wansley, who goes by his music moniker Wanz, is famous for singing the hook on the popular Macklemore and Ryan Lewis song “Thrift Shop.” In pursuit of his own solo fame, Wanz released his new single “To: Nate Dog” yesterday. The single is a tribute to the late master of hooks with original regulator Warren G joining him. “To: Nate Dogg” is now available via Wanz0matic Records here.
According to the official press release, Wanz had this to say about his new single:
“Thrift Shop” changed my life, no question. I’ve been able to experience dreams I’ve had since childhood. Living that dream turned into me being compared to one of the greatest hook singers of all time, Nate DeeODblGee! “To: Nate Dogg” is my way of paying respect to him for giving me a lane in Hip-Hop. Working with Warren G has been an honor! I’m excited that Warren-Nate’s best friend-drops the first verse! Grynch and Crytical fill out “To: Nate Dogg” and they complete what I hope to be a BANGIN anthem for BBQ’s, parties and all things summertime!! Let’s party in the spirit of the Dog, Nate Dogg!”
