Lil Wayne Performed ‘Kobe Bryant’ Tribute During BET Awards (VIDEO)
Lil Wayne paid tribute to the late Kobe Bryant by performing his 2009 song “Kobe Bryant” over the weekend at the BET Awards.
Trae Young loved it:
Bryant explained the backstory of the song in 2019 when he told him the performance motivated him.
“[Wayne] was like, ‘I’ma do a song. Is it OK, can I do a song?'” Bryant said. “I was like, ‘All right cool.’ I just thought he was BS-ing or whatever. Before the Boston Celtics series, he sends me the song and I was like, ‘Oh, you were serious.’ OK, that’s awesome.”
Rest in peace to the legend that is Kobe Bryant.
