Kendrick Lamar Pays Tribute To Kobe Bryant In ESPN’s ‘Fade To Black’

Kendrick Kobe Bryant

Kendrick Lamar is about as California as they come, and he wore his California pride on his sleeve last night (April 11) as he paid homage to L.A. Lakers legend Kobe Bryant.

In a video set to the tune of “untitled 07 (Levitate),” Kendrick reminisces on some of the Black Mamba’s greatest moments over the course of his career. “If you wasn’t born and raised here, if you haven’t lived here, you’ll probably never understand,” Lamar says. “I’ma make sure you do.”

After 20 years in the NBA, he’ll grace the court one last time tomorrow night (April 13) against the Utah Jazz. This video tribute couldn’t be more timely. Check it here.
