Lil '½ Dead : Real Name Donald Smith (born 13 of September of 1974 ) is a rapper American from Long Beach, California . His stage name is based on the character Half Dead of the film Penitentiary ( 1979 ). He is cousin of Nate Dogg and in his first years in the rap scene he was member of the group 213 . He joined Dr. Dre on the trip across America on the Chronic Tour of 1993 . His solo debut album, The Dead Has Arisen , has a similar sound to Dre's G-Funk and Snoop Dogg .

The song "Lil Ghetto Boy" (from the album The Chronic of Dr. Dre) has a brief reference to the Californian rapper, like "Fuck You" and "Housewife" of the 2001 album of Dre. He is currently working on a new album.
