Legendary American rapper Snoop Dogg is mourning the death of his mom Beverly Tate and posted several tributes in her honor on his Instagram page.


It is said that a mother's love is all-encompassing. Mothers are always there for their children and give their all to ensure their success. Losing a loved one is difficult to endure and much harder to take when that loved one is a mother who helped one to rise to their pinnacle.

Legendary American rapper Snoop Dogg and his family are in a state of mourning following the death of his beautiful mom Beverly Tate. Find out the circumstances behind her death and her relationship with her beloved son.

Snoop Dogg broke the news of his mom's death on Sunday by posting a tribute to her on Instagram. He shared a picture that showed him and Tate posing, both smiling while embracing each other. He captioned the post:


"Mama thank u for having me 🙏🏾🌹."


The rapper made another post in which he shared a photo of his mom in a red dress and holding a flower while smiling. In the post's caption, he wrote:

"Thank u god for giving me an angel 🕊 for a mother 💖🙏🏽🌹💝 TWMA."


Snoop Dogg also posted a video that showed him sitting quietly and looking sober while nodding his head to a soulful song playing in the background. He captioned the video with a broken heart emoji, showing his feelings after his mom's death.

He also shared a picture on his Instagram Story that showed his mom posing with him and his friends. Many of Snoop Dogg's friends and fans reacted to his posts with heartfelt messages of condolence, reassuring him that they were praying for him and his family.


Snoop Dogg's father, Vernell Varnado, also confirmed the news of Tate's death and asked for prayers noting that the family needed it. However, neither he nor his famous son revealed the cause of her death.

Earlier in the year, Tate was hospitalized for undisclosed reasons. Snoop Dogg requested his fans to send good vibes while she was in the hospital.

Later, the rapper provided an update on her wellbeing by revealing she was still fighting and had opened her eyes. However, he did not give further details.



Snoop Dogg had a close relationship with his mother. Tate described her relationship with him in the 17th and 18th chapters of her book "Real Love II."

In the 17th chapter, Tate revealed she gave birth to Snoop Dogg on October 20, 1971, at Los Alto Hospital, Long Beach. She nicknamed him Snoopy after the Peanuts character. She described Snoop Dogg and his brother Jerry as the joys to her heart and inspiration in life.

In the 18th chapter titled, "The Life of Snoopy Growing Up," Tate wrote that Snoop Dogg never wanted to be a child and said it appeared he went straight from being a baby to wanting to be a man.


Tate revealed that as a youngster, Snoop Dogg thought he was equal to any adult in thinking and had a sense of who he was and what he wanted. She described him as a bit of a wise guy even at his young age.

Snoop Dogg revealed how his mom influenced him to apologize to King.


However, Tate said those attributes caused some problems between her and the young Snoop Dogg. Even as a single mom, she was raised to believe that a child should stay in a child's place and always respect their parents and adults.

In her book, Tate also described Snoop Dogg as aggressive and outgoing while growing up. She said he always loved having money and became a paperboy at 13.


Young Snoop Dogg had many experiences as a paperboy. Sometimes, he would get into trouble and had people reporting him to his mom. Once that happened, he knew he would get a whipping from his mother.

Hence, he would plead and cry very loudly so that the neighbors would hear his voice. At times, he tried talking or joking his way out of those situations. Tate revealed that Snoop Dogg and his brother, Jerry, always called her by her first name, "Beverly."


Despite that, she was strict with them because she had read that a parent's love is too tender to inflict unnecessary whipping and too strong to spare it if needed. So, although Tate was strict with her kids, she often hugged them and showed them affection.

Snoop Dogg takes every opportunity to pay tribute to his mom. In January 2019, he shared a video showing pictures of his mom and his wife, Shante Broadus, over his recording studio equipment. He captioned the post:

"Momma and. Wifey @bosslady_ent @beverlygreen21."


On Mother's Day last year, Snoop Dogg paid tribute to his mom by penning an emotional message to her, thanking her for all the things she did for him.


The world found out how much influence Tate had on her son when Snoop Dogg apologized to television personality Gayle King after initially criticizing her with harsh words following her comments about the late NBA star Kobe Bryant.

During an appearance on "Red Table Talk," Snoop Dogg revealed how his mom influenced him to apologize to King. He said Tate called him and made him realize the gravity of his words.


Snoop Dogg said his mom raised him in church and raised him to respect women. He said certain things she said to him took him back to being a little child. The rapper added that when one's mom makes them feel like a kid, they have to get things right.

Snoop Dogg explained that his mom told him she raised him better, and he is a representation of his family and every woman that has crossed his life.

After his mom's chastening words, Snoop Dogg posted an Instagram video where he admitted he overreacted with his criticism of King and apologized to the broadcaster.

Tate's influence on her children is very obvious. There is no doubt that Snoop Dogg and his siblings will celebrate her impactful life and hold on to all they learned from her. May her soul rest in peace.
