While asking fans for prayers on Instagram, Snoop posted a photo of him and his brothers visiting their mother in her hospital room.

Snoop has not offered any specific details about his mother's condition, at this time, but first noted her health issues back in May. "I need all my prayer warriors for momma right now please and thank you," he wrote in an Instagram post on May 7. The post also included a photo of Tate, showing the matriarch flashing a smile while donning a lovely red outfit with a matching hat.
The "Gin N Juice" rapper has always been open about his close relationship with his mother, and in 2020 he shared that she compelled him to issue an apology to CBS News journalist Gayle King. During an interview with WNBA legend Lisa Leslie, King brought up the past sexual assault allegations against Kobe Bryant, who'd recently died in a tragic helicopter accident. Snoop was very angry about the situation and publicly criticized King quite harshly.
He later explained that his mother spoke with him and made him realize what he needed to do to make things right. "My mother raised me in church and she raised me to respect women," Snoop said of why he chose to apologize. "It was certain things she said to me that took me back to being a little kid. And when your mama can make you feel like a kid, that's when you gotta get right."
