Many rappers have paid tribute to the late Kobe Bryant after he tragically died in a helicopter crash.
The Game, Big Sean, and Hit-Boy are paying tribute to Bryant by releasing a new song about the basketball legend. Los Angeles Leakers host Justin Credible shared the preview on his Instagram page.
“I found this song that some of my friends did that I wanted to share with y’all. Another L.A. KING rapping his heart out for our hero. #RIPKOBE #RIPGIGI Don’t ask where I got it, just enjoy it. L.A. Leakers and L.A. Lakers! It’s only right,” Justin wrote in his Instagram post under a snippet of the unnamed song.
“Fuck 24/7, I’m going 24/8/That’s magic and he knew what it took to be great,” Big Sean rapped in the preview.
“I was courtside when you scored 60/Now you in heaven with my nigga from the 60s,” Game raps in the next verse. “Black Mamba, neighborhood Nipsey/That’s the type of love you throw and it come back like a frisbee.”
The Game and Big Sean have both shared their condolences on social media following Bryant’s tragic death.
“I'm sick! I can’t imagine the pain your family is feeling loosing your amazing daughter Giana and you. Feels like we all just lost a part of our family. We just spent New Years with you and yours, and I hope I'm still sleeping and will wake up from this nightmare. Thank you for changing the game and dedicating so much of your life! Mamba Mentality 4 Life!” Big Sean posted on Instagram.
The Game tweeted, “I’m sick !!!!! I love you bro. Thank you for everything. Life is short. Death is krazy.”
There’s no word on the title of the song or when it will be released. Check out the preview of the new song below.
