Kendrick Lamar Pays Tribute to Kobe Bryant With Awesome Highlight Clip

Kendrick Lamar is a native of Compton, California, which means his “hometown” team was the Los Angeles Lakers growing up, and you can spot him seated courtside at the Staples Center on any given night, watching Kobe Bryant‘s farewell tour, and the Lakers crop of young players try to figure out just how the heck they’re going to do this without their weary, fearless leader.

With Mamba Day–Kobe’s final NBA game–on the horizon (tomorrow), Kendrick Lamar has decided to unleash an in-depth tribute video, stocked with highlights and his own excitable narration, dedicated to the 20-year veteran, 5-time NBA Champion, and sports icon known as Kobe Bean Bryant.

From his iconic game-winners against the Trailblazers and Suns, to his posterizing of players like Steve Nash and Dwight Howard, Cornrow Kenny sums up the greatness that was 8 & 24’s career in a seamless nutshell. Watch the clip above, and be sure to be in front of a television tomorrow night when Kobe takes the court for the final time at home against the Utah Jazz.
