In an Instagram post, Snoop shared a photo of his younger brother with the words: "In Loving Memory… Bing Worthington May 4, 1979 - Feb. 16, 2024" accompanying the photo. The tribute was much like what you might find on an Order of Service leaflet for a funeral.

He wrote in the caption: "Rest well lil brother" with a number of emojis, adding "be my guiding light".

The rapper has repeatedly posted on Instagram to remember Bing, as he showed his emotional side while listening to Stevie Wonder's "Lately", shaking his head with glistening eyes. He added that he was "trying to stay strong lil bruh".
