Snoop Dogg and his family are sticking together after recently going through a tragedy. The rapper had fun with his clan last weekend at the premiere of "The Addams Family."


The animated MGM film premiered on Sunday at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles, and Snoop, who voices the character "It," successfully mixed business with pleasure.

Although the rap legend was at the premiere as one of the film’s cast members, he also seemed to have a lot of fun hanging out with family, judging by his social media posts.

Snoop, 47, posed for photos with some of his grandchildren outside the venue and in the theater. The rapper also shared a snapshot of the entire Broadus clan posing on the purple carpet.

"Mi Familia," a proud Snoop captioned the pic. "Addams. Family premiere."



The 2019 "Addams Family" remake, according to Daily Mail, is the latest high-profile project adapted from the beloved Charles Addams cartoon series about a horror family of the same name.

Snoop (real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.) voices "It" in the movie, working alongside co-stars Charlize Theron, Oscar Isaac, Bette Midler, Jennifer Lewis, and Chloe Grace Moretz.



"I was a fan of the Addams Family as a kid," Snoop told reporters, per BCK Online. "When they reached out to me and asked me to be a part of it, I was like, 'I can’t say no because I loved the show so much as a kid.'"

It’s good to see Snoop and his family having fun again after they recently lost the rapper’s grandson, Kai Love.

Kai, born to Snoop’s first child Corde and his partner Soraya, lived for only ten days, reportedly spending most of that short time in a neonatal intensive care unit.


Corde, 25, confirmed the tragedy in a since-deleted Instagram post quoted by ESSENCE:

"My Son Kai brought so much love and positivity into this world. His energy will live on and these 10 days of love will always be special to us. Let’s all cherish life and those we love while we are here. Thank you."



Snoop did not directly address Kai’s death, but he posted a video message of texts after the sad news broke.

"If you're facing something you don't understand: Choose to trust God," the message read. “Remember all He has done for you. His ways are higher than ours. He is always good."

Kai was Corde’s third child. The budding rapper shares one-year-old daughter Elleven with Soraya while he has a four-year-old son Zion with ex-girlfriend Jessica Kyzer. Snoop also has another granddaughter by his second son Cordell.
