Snoop Dogg is making sure the show goes on after saying goodbye to his beloved mom, Beverly Tate. Radar is told the rapper is "not canceling" Tuesday's listening party for his upcoming album, despite announcing his mother's death just one day ago.
We're told the preview of Snoop's The Algorithm will go on as planned in New York City, and he's doubling up on shows.
Radar has learned there will be two sessions — one at 6 PM and another at 8 PM — marking his first full project with Def Jam since joining the label as the executive creative and strategic consultant in June.
"He is not canceling," a source with direct knowledge told us. "The listening session is a sneak peek at his upcoming album."
Snoop revealed his mom's passing on Sunday, posting several photos of her on social media. Sharing a gorgeous photo of Beverly wearing red and flashing her gorgeous smile while holding flowers, her famous son wrote, "Thank u god for giving me an angel for a mother TWMA."
The legendary music mogul also shared a photo of himself grinning next to his mom. "Mama thank u for having me," he captioned the sweet shot.
Snoops father, Vernell, also confirmed the news of Beverly's death, asking for prayers and stating his family needs them more than ever.
The Gin & Juice rapper's mom was in the hospital earlier this year, but the reason behind her hospitalization was never given. Snoop later told his fans that Beverly was "still fighting" and that she needed prayers.
Snoop was close with his mom and she even pushed him to apologize to Gayle King after ripping into her over her comments about Kobe Bryant following his unexpected death.
Snoop's highly-anticipated The Algorithm will feature a number of past, present, and future artists of Def Jam Recordings.
"There’s so much talent on this record,” he said in a statement. “So many styles of music, it breaks the algorithm. Right now, the algorithm is telling us you have to rap this way, you have to sound this way, but they’re not telling you how it’s supposed to feel. My algorithm is going to give you a feeling, not a sound."
