Thinking about the spirit of Nate Dogg (singer, Dogg Pound member, Nathaniel Hale) and what his energy on this earth reflected to the world from birth to death (1969-2011). “I Think It’s Time I Set My Spirit Free” are lyrics from his song “No Matter Where I Go”.  Connecting with this particular song is a wonderful connection to honor his spirit.

Your energy is your life force. It is your power, your spirit. It is the survival intuition with which all of us are born. It is your sexuality, your creativity, your self-esteem. It is your will and your mind and it is your ability to receive guidance, whether from a divine source of God or from a trust in a creative universal mind.  Nate Dogg’s spirit is free to live on through all of his music and contributions to the hip hop culture  – – –

No Matter Where I Go – Lyrics

[Chorus]

No matter where I go

I’m lettin’ people know

No matter where you go the grass is always green

No matter what you say

You gotta’ release the chains

I think it’s time I set my spirit free

[Verse 1]

No matter where I go

I’m lettin’ people know

That the pace is never stalling

Even if the sky is falling

I’ll never be afraid

As long as I keep my faith

Even if I am still crawling

Won’t be mad ’cause some are balling

But man without the trust, without the loyalty

When you watch your dog just starving

Don’t get mad when they start barkin’

Here’s a suggestion man

Why don’t we just wash our hands

‘Cause I’m peepin’ other pastures

I think it’s time I’m my own master.

[Chorus]

No matter where I go

I’m lettin’ people know

No matter where you go the grass is always green

No matter what you say

You gotta’ release the chains

I think it’s time I set my spirit free

[Verse 2]

Long ago I told my homie

Some people are so damn phony

Sure as the wind blows

They’ll try to take your dough

On and on man they just keep comin’

‘Til I’m dead man I’m never runnin’

Fear I just don’t know

If it’s your time you gotta’ go

But what about the trust what about the loyalty

When the have no respect for you

It’s fuck ’em or call your lawyer

Here’s a suggestion man

Why don’t’ we just wash our hands

‘Cause I’m peepin’ other pastures

I think it’s time I’m my own master.

[Chorus]

No matter where I go

I’m lettin’ people know

No matter where you go the grass is always green

No matter what you say

You gotta’ release the chains

I think it’s time I set my spirit free

[Bridge]

Here’s to my family

Here’s to the ones I really love

Here’s to the inmates

And that’s who made Death Row #1

Here’s to the foundation

And that’s where, where it started from

Here’s to real freedom

They tell me makin’ music’s fun

When you got no shackles on your feet

[Chorus]

No matter where I go

I’m lettin’ people know

No matter where you go the grass is always green

No matter what you say

You gotta’ release the chains

I think it’s time I set my spirit free
