Hip hop star Snoop Dogg is in mourning following the demise of his mother Beverly Tate, who's died aged 70.
The rapper, whose official name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., shared the heartbreaking news alongside a host of emotional tributes.
He posted different throwback photos of himself with his mother, with different captions accentuating the gap he's dealing with.
In one of them, he thanked the late for having brought him to the world, while the other thanked God for giving him an angel.

Perhaps, the most potent tribute of all was when Snoop posted a video of himself seated in a dark room listening to music.
The songwriter captioned the video with a single broken heart emoji.
Snoop did not share details regarding the mom's death nor whether it was as a result of her recent problems with health, but the artist revealed in May that his mom was in the hospital.
That was followed in June by a photo of the singer and his family paying her a visit, one that seemed to point to her getting better.
"Happy Sunday. My brothers and I went to see mama today and she opened up her eyes to see us and let us know she still fighting," he wrote.
He went ahead and thanked God as well as his fans for all the prayers, adding that everything was falling into place a day at a time.

She was married to Snoop's father Vernall Varnado, a war veteran and mail carrier who was mostly away from the family.
