Sgt. Frank Gonzalez of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department in California confirmed to NBC News there will be a toxicology and autopsy report.

Peers like D-Nice, Tamar Braxton, Battlecat, L.T. Hutton, Xzibit, Tyrese, and Kxng Crooked shared their condolences in the comments.

Longtime collaborator Berner wrote, “I’m so sorry, big brother. Bing was a bright soul. I had the best time getting to know him last summer. Sending love and positive energy to you and the whole family.”

Worthington was known by many to be a pivotal figure in Snoop’s behind-the-scenes operations. He served as the rapper’s tour manager, co-founded the record label Dogg Records, and was credited as an executive producer on “Bigg Snoop Dogg: Raw ‘N Uncut Vol. 1.” He also helped launch Snoop’s skateboard line and hot dogs, and said he co-wrote the song “Be Thankful” for Snoop’s group Eastsidaz. The entrepreneur briefly made music for a period in the hip-hop group Lifestyle. Their one and only album “Liquid Cocaine” was released in 2003.

Our condolences go out to Snoop Dogg and his family.
