Bing passed away on Thursday, February 15 in California. NBC News reported that "the cause of death will be pending the results of the toxicology and autopsy report," as they quoted an email from Sergeant Frank Gonzalez of the Orange County Sheriff's Department in California. 

Since his death, Snoop has shared several tributes to his brother on social media, including a photo from their childhood taken in 1980, a picture of Bing with their late mother, and several photos featuring Bing with broken heart emojis.

Snoop and his sibling had a very close relationship and also worked together, with Bing beginning as a roadie before advancing to become his brother's tour manager. 

"I started from the bottom, I ain't just become the tour manager, I was just the road guy. I worked my way to the top," Bing told Vice back in 2016. 

"Even though I'm [Snoop's] brother he didn't give me a top-ranked position. You can't just become a president without knowing anything about being the president. You have to learn," he added.

Speaking of his achievements, Bing said: "I do a lot of entrepreneur [expletive] I've done lots of things with Snoop, like Dogg [Cadillac] DeVilles, Dogg Skateboards, you name it. I come up with a lot of great concepts. 

"As well, I've done a lot of work with Snoop on the road and basically putting the albums together, so I've been doing this for years." 

Beyond his work with Snoop, Bing carved out his own path in the music world. He was part of the hip-hop group Lifestyle, contributing to their sole album, Liquid Cocaine, released in 2003.

However, it was the business side of the industry that he was drawn to more than creating his music. 

"My guy was a great rapper and I was a great rapper, but I was like, 'Why am I working on the music? I should be doing all the business side of this thing,'" he told the publication. 

"I love meeting people, talking business, that got me going. That made me feel like another person."
