Nate Dogg's sons, Lil' Nate, 18, and Nigel, 15, gave their first interview since their dad died last month.

The brothers tell TMZ.com they're recording an album, and working with "Uncle Snoop" Dogg, a frequent collaborator with Nate.

"We're going to try to be just like him," says Lil' Nate, who learned how to write hooks from his father.

Although they haven't begun recording, they're "writing," Nigel says.

Has their father heard their work? "He wouldn't like it very much," Nigel jokes. "He didn't like me cussing too much."

Nate Dogg (real name: Nathaniel D. Hale) died at 41 on March 15 from stroke complications.
