Corde’s post was of a video of his 13-month-old daughter Elleven Love giving her baby brother a kiss while he was in the hospital and a sign that read his name and death date. The sign also read, “Love + Light” along with a smiley face.

Kai’s cause of death is currently unknown, and Snoop Dogg has yet to comment on the loss of his grandson, but his wife, Shante Broadus has taken to social media to reference her grief.
