Another solid tribute for Kobe Bryant — this time it’s rap superstar, Lil Baby, teaming up with Money Man in a track paying homage to the NBA legend.
The two rappers dropped a song called “24” — which includes several shout-outs to Kobe … and some pretty incredible cover art which based around Black Mamba snakes, basketball and #24.
“R.I.P. Kobe Bryant, R.I.P. 24
I can make a cool $50K in less than 24 hours.”
“Grew up in the trap watching Kobe yam on a n***a
Pull up in the Porsche, yeah, the Pan’ on a n***a
Yeah, pull up in the Dodge, yeah, the Ram on a n***a
Anybody try, yeah, I’ma blam on n****s.”
There’s a gratuitous shot at NFL quarterback Joe Flacco …
“White collar diamonds, n***a ballin’ like Lonzo
These n****s overrated like Joe Flacco.”
FYI, Flacco did win a Super Bowl!
Anyway, Money Man and Lil Baby are just the latest to honor Kobe … following Lil Wayne, Amine’ and others.
Kobe Bryant was big into hip-hop — famously dropping a single with Tyra Banks back in 2000. He also appeared on some other tracks.
But get this, Vibe.com says Kobe has been referenced in 500 songs over the years … and obviously, with such a powerful legacy, that number will only continue to grow.
