Snoop Dogg asked for prayers for his mother, Beverly Tate, in an Instagram post on Friday. The 49-year-old rapper shared a photo of his mother along with the caption: "I need all my prayer warriors for momma right now please and thank you."

Snoop, real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., didn't share details about his mother's health status.

In another post, he wrote "Mama thank u for having me could of gave me up but u raised a family."

Snoop credited his mother for his apology to Gayle King after he dissed her over questions she asked about the late basketball legend Kobe Bryant.

In a video on social media, Snoop said, "Respect the family and back off, bitch, before we come get you."

"She didn't say I was wrong," Snoop said of his mother. "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," Snoop recalled during his appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith's "Red Table Talk."

In a Mother's Day video last May, Snoop expressed his love and devotion for his mother.
