The rap icon revealed that his mother, Beverly Tate, has died. In a series of Instagram posts on Sunday, he paid tribute to the woman who raised him.
It’s unclear how she died. Back in May, Snoop revealed that his mother was not well and asked for prayers. He also shared a photo of himself and his brothers visiting their mother at the hospital. “She opened up her eyes to c us and let us know she still fighting,” he wrote at the time.
Snoop, who celebrated his 50th birthday last week, had a close relationship with his mom and paid tribute to her on his 2018 song, “Thank You for Having Me.” “My game and all my slick talk come from my mama,” he once said.
