After news broke last night about the passing of music legend B. B. King, musicians such as Snoop Dogg, Shamir Bailey, and Cat Power took to their Twitter and Instagram accounts to show love and mourn the passing of the late great. Snoop Dogg spoke on Instagram about his plans to create a mix using some of B. B. King’s greatest hits as he smoked to the sounds of King’s “The Thrill is Gone.”

B.B. passed away peacefully in his sleep on Thursday night after years of battling type II diabetes and recently, exhaustion and dehydration. B. B. lived a full life for 89 years. He may be gone, but he shall never be forgotten. Rest easy, King.
