What happened to Snoop Dogg's mother?
On Friday, May 7, 'What's My Name?' singer shared images of his mother. In the caption of one picture, he wrote, “I need all my prayer warriors for Momma right now, please and thank you.” Snoop has not, however, confirmed what has happened to his mom despite a series of posts.
The first time that Snoop told his fans about his mother was on May 5, when he posted a picture of himself placing a kiss on his mother's cheek and wrote: “Sending special prayers out for my mom this morning y’all pray for her and me.”
Since May 7, the rapper has uploaded several pictures with his mother.

'Raised better than that'
Snoop has always emphasized his mother's role in his life. Snoop revealed on Jada Smith's Red Table Talk that his mother influenced him to apologize to CBS host Gayle King after the rapper attacked her over the Kobe Bryant sexual assault question in February 2020. “She didn’t say I was wrong she just said, ‘You know I raised you better than that. You’re a representation of us. Every woman that ever crossed your life, you’re a representation of that’ – so I got it,” he said, according to Hitc.com. Following this, Snoop had posted a public apology video.
"I was raised way better than that," he had said. "So I would like to apologize to you publicly for the language that I used and calling you out of your name and just being disrespectful."
