Snoop Dogg opens up about doing show after mom’s death Snoop Dogg opened up to his fans via Instagram after doing a show following his mother’s death. Snoop said in his caption of a picture of his mother, “Thank u [sic] God for giving me an angel for a mother.” In an interview, Snoop said, “Man, I wanted to [cancel everything]. When I got the news, I had a show that night. And I just went to my room, I cried a little bit, and I was like, ‘Damn, what would my mama want me to do?’ She would want me to get in front of these people and give them a show.” He continued, “And I went out there and gave it to them. And the last song I played was ‘Stand By Me’ and it’s a particular part of the song saying, ‘I won’t cry, I won’t cry.’ And I took my glasses off and I didn’t cry. In my heart, I wanted to but I just was like I can’t. And they [the audience] were giving it back to me. I just felt my mama telling me, ‘You better not stop.'” What was the biggest obstacle you have ever faced in life?
