Friends of the family expressed their condolences on Twitter. “Enjoyed watching big homie do his stuff on stage. Prayers 2 @SnoopDogg @DAZDILLINGER and family. RIP,” tweeted Kendrick Lamar, while Monica added, “All the laughter you brought will forever be cherished… Just thinking of you dancing makes me smile!!”

June Bugg was a fixture at Snoop’s live shows and would entertain the crowd by dancing onstage.

    It’s so sentimental that he was able to hold on for another week. Like he wasn’t ready to go until he saw his nephew one more time. That’s deep. R.I.P.
