Written by on October 25, 2021

Snoop Dogg has paid tribute to his mom Beverly Tate, the author and evangelist who passed away Sunday (Oct. 24), at the age of 70.

The hip-hop great turned to social media to share a string of throwback photos of himself and his beloved mom, who was born in McComb, Mississippi, in 1951.

In one post, the 50-year-old rapper posted a pic of himself leaning in for a hug with his mom, along with the caption, “Mama thank u for having me.”

Snoop also posted a video of himself, listening to music in a darkened room, captioned with a single broken-heart emoji.

Born Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, Snoop is one Tate’s four sons. More than just the mother of the Doggfather, Tate published a string of books during her lifetime, including Real Love (2012), and Real Love II: The Story of an Extraordinary Woman (2014).

Tate was reportedly hospitalized earlier this year for undisclosed reasons. A cause of death has not been revealed.
