Snoop Dogg announced the devastating news that his late mother Tate has passed away. Yesterday (Sunday), the rapper revealed the shocking news on Instagram where he wrote, “Thank u god for giving me an angel 🕊 for a mother 💖🙏🏽🌹💝 TWMA.”
In another message, he expresses gratitude to his mother for allowing him to live with her. The reason for death was not disclosed.
Snoop Dogg’s family ask for prayers
Snoop Dogg’s father, Vernell, verified the news as well and has requested prayers, stating that the family needed them more than ever.
Tate had already been in the hospital previously this year for unspecified circumstances, and Snoop had urged his fans to send positive energies to her while she was there. The rapper later reassured, saying she was “still battling” and that she had awakened but no words came out of her mouth.
Tate’s impact on Snoop
It’s pretty evident that the pair were very close since he has already stated all his positive habits are from her. Snoop claims she was also the one who persuaded him to apologize to Gayle King for his remarks in reaction to her Kobe Bryant statement last year.
Tate went on to have two more kids with Vernell… and established her family in Long Beach, California. Snoop was raised in a Christian setting, which he still mentions. Rest in peace Tate!
