Lil Wayne delivered an incredibly heartwarming remix of his 2009 song “Kobe Bryant” at the 2020 BET Awards to honor the late Los Angeles Lakers legend.
Wayne’s tribute started with Bryant’s words: “I want to be the best, I want to be the best simple and plain” as highlights of the legend flowed across the screen.
Seamlessly integrating new lyrics into a song created over a decade ago, Wayne truly encapsulated how dominant of a force Bryant was on and off the court.
He made a point to not only mourn Bryant but his late daughter Gianna Bryant as well, rapping ‘two fingers for the Mambacita, I’m screaming Black Mamba matters’.
As the world continues to grieve, Bryant’s legacy lives on in those who were inspired by him such as his teammates, competitors, and the next generation.
With each tribute such as Snoop Dogg’s at the 2020 ESPY Awards, it becomes more apparent that Bryant left an unforgettable impact on the entire world.
