Chris Brown is paying homage to Kobe Bryant through painting.

The “No Guidance” singer originally posted a picture of the purple and gold mural two days after Bryant’s death, but today (Feb. 4) he shared a photo of himself adding onto the original portrait of Bryant’s face.

In the updated mural, he added a painting of Bryant in his No. 8 jersey and another painting of Bryant in his No. 24 jersey. He captioned the photo, “ONE DAY AT A TIME ❤️.”

Brown isn’t the only celebrity to give tribute to Bryant over the last few days.

Kanye West hosted a midnight post-Grammys Sunday Service in Burbank, California, where he honored Bryant with a soulful performance.

“When I was driving home, they was pinning your jersey on the freeway and I just broke down,” West freestyled during the service. “Kobe it’s too far. Shoot it from where you are. Remember that you’re a star. You gotta do more, you gotta go hard. If Kobe was here, he’d maybe grab the mic. If Kobe was here … he here tonight.”

Lil Wayne shared a simple message on Twitter after learning of Bryant’s death. He tweeted, “We lost a King. 824.” He also paid homage to Bryant on his new album, Funeral.

The album contains 24 tracks, which was famously one of Bryant’s jersey numbers while on the Los Angeles Lakers. Wayne also made song No. 8, Bryant’s other jersey number, a tribute track titled “Bing James.” The song ends with a 24-second gap before the next song

The world is still mourning the untimely death of Bryant. The NBA legend was tragically killed in a helicopter crash along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others. Investigators are still trying to figure out what caused the crash, but witnesses say there was heavy fog in the area and investigators believe that the pilot could not see where he was flying.

Take a look at Brown’s mural below.
