Rap Legend Snoop Dogg Mourns The Loss Of His Uncle

Anyone who has ever experienced the loss of a loved one can easily understand the pain associated with the death of whom we are closest to. Snoop Dogg’s Uncle Willie passed away just this week.

Rap legend Snoop Dogg took to social media on July 13th to honor the passing of his late Uncle Willie with a commemorative piece of what the last visit with his late Uncle looked like.

The clip shows the softer side of West Coast rap legend Snoop Dogg visiting his late Uncle Willie in his hospital room for a catch up on lost time session to congratulate his Uncle for coming up on his 91st birthday.

Message For His Uncle:

“Life is Precious Glad I got to make my Uncle Willie J smile one more time b4 going up beyond Earth rest,” Snoop appropriately captioned the video with: “Well Unk, say hi to Grandmama and my mama, thank u, for being u.”

To close out the visit with Uncle Willie who could not stop smiling the rap legend graciously posed in pictures with the nursing staff taking care of his Uncle while sharing one last commemorative moment with his own blood relative.

This passing of Uncle Willie hit just one year after the passing of his Mother Beverly Tate due to an undisclosed illness. The rap legend paid tribute to his late Mothers passing with pictures of the two on Instagram.

“Thank you God for giving me an angel for a mother,” the caption read; “TWMA….Til we meet again.”
