Snoop Dogg is asking fans to send their positive thoughts and prayers to his mother, Beverly Tate. On Friday (May 7) the 49-year-old rapper shared a picture of his mom on Instagram and asked for help from all “prayer warriors.”

“Need all my prayer warriors for momma right now please and thank you,” Snoop captioned the post.

Snoop first alerted his fans about his mother’s wellbeing on Wednesday (May 5). “Sending special prayers out for my mom this morning y’all pray for her and me,” he wrote about his mom, who is 70 years old.

The Long Beach native didn’t offer any further details about what might be going on, but fans and former collaborators have sent their love on social media. Busta Rhymes commented several prayer hands emojis on Snoop’s post and DJ D-Nice wrote, “Prayers up, brother.”

Snoop has a close relationship with his mother that he’s often shared with fans on social media. While appearing on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook show “Red Table Talk” last year, he revealed that it was his mom who inspired him to apologize to CBS host Gayle King after he criticized her in light of comments she made about Kobe Bryant.

“She didn’t say I was wrong she just said, ‘You know I raised you better than that. You’re a representation of us. Every woman that ever crossed your life, you’re a representation of that’ – so I got it,” he said on the show.

Snoop said his mother also convinced him to post an apology video to King on Instagram.

Last Mother’s Day, the veteran rapper paid tribute to both his mom and wife Shante Taylor in posts on Instagram.

“Thank. U. Momma. Happy Mother’s Day!” he captioned a photo of his mother.
