Snoop Dogg’s family is mourning the death of his infant grandson, who passed away just 10 days after birth, according to multiple reports and an Instagram post by the rapper’s son, Corde Broadus.
Kai Love was born Sept. 15 and died Wednesday, but the cause of death has not been released.
“My Son Kai brought so much love and positivity into this world,” Broadus wrote Thursday alongside a video of another child kissing the newborn on the cheek.
“His energy will live on and these 10 days of love will always be special to us,” he added. “Let’s all cherish life and those we love while we are here."
The baby, who appeared to still be in the hospital this week, was Broadus’ third child and the musician’s fifth grandchild, according to TMZ.
Snoop Dogg’s wife, Shante Broadus, posted a video of her singing on Instagram with the caption, “To My Fifth G Baby… Kai Love 9-15-19/9-25-19.”
A representative for the rapper, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, did not return a request for comment on Friday.
