daz june bug snoop & some guy

*Unfortunately we have to report that Snoop Dogg lost his uncle June Bug. The 70-year-old cherished family member passed away yesterday, Friday.

TMZ reports that that Snoop was by his uncle’s bedside last night, along with rapper Daz Dillinger – who Junebug was also an uncle to – as he took his last breaths.

June Bug had been dealing with colon cancer for some time now, so the end was probably anticipated by his family.

June Bug was known to accompany Snoop on tour and was often seen dancing on stage during concerts. June Bug was also the uncle of rapper Daz Dillinger.

Here’s what Snoop tweeted about his beloved uncle:

Daz confirmed the death of his Uncle by posting a video to his Instagram dedicated to him (below).
