Snoop Dogg’s Uncle June Bugg Officially Dies After Battle with Cancer

Snoop Dogg’s beloved uncle June Bugg has officially passed away after a long bout with colon cancer.

The 70-year-old mentor of the Doggfather died on Sunday (March 30), according to his nephew Daz Dillinger. He tweeted:

This is a little confusing because we reported on March 22 that Snoop Dogg went on Twitter to announce that June Bugg had died. But it looks like he might have been still battling cancer. Doctors had given June Bugg one day to live but he held on for a week longer than expected.

Thankfully, the ‘Gin & Juice’ rapper was able to see his uncle and he reportedly acknowledged Snoop’s presence before he died.

Uncle June Bugg was an adviser to Snoop Dogg and often joined him on tour as his background dancer. He also starred in ‘Snoop’s Upside Your Head’ video from ‘Tha Doggfather’ album.

Initially, upon hearing the sad news of June Bugg’s death, friends and family expressed their condolences on Twitter.

“Enjoyed watching big homie do his stuff on stage. Prayers 2 @SnoopDogg @DAZDILLINGER and family. RIP. #UNCLEJUNEBUG,” tweeted Kendrick Lamar.

“RIP To June Bugg…. Say A Prayer Fo @snoopdogg He Just Lost His Uncle.. A Legend…,” wrote TraeThatTruth.

Funeral arrangements for Uncle June Bugg are pending.
