Beverly Tate Wiki – Beverly Tate Biography
Beverly Tate, the mother of Snoop Dogg, has died, according to her son.
The rapper broke the news Sunday, posting a tribute to her on Instagram and writing … “Thank u, God, for giving me an angel for a mother TWMA.” There’s another post where he thanks his mom for having him. A cause of death wasn’t revealed.
SD’s father, Vernell, also confirmed the news … and he too asked for prayers, noting the family needed it now more than ever.
Beverly had two other sons by Vernell and raised the family in Long Beach, CA. She brought Snoop up in a church environment — something he still alludes to this day.
Her age is unclear.

Ms. Tate had been hospitalized earlier this year for undisclosed reasons — Snoop had asked his fans to send good vibes while his mother was in the hospital. He later updated folks by letting them know she was “still fighting” and had opened her eyes, but she didn’t mention anything specific.
