On Monday, thousands showed their respect and honor for fallen NBA star Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter Gianna Bryant, who both died in a helicopter crash on January 26.

Days after the former laker’s sudden death, Brooklyn rapper Pop Smoke spoke on Kobe’s passing during an interview with DJ Whoo Kid, where the “Dior” rapper stated that Bryant was his favorite hoop star of all time.

Less than a month after Bryant’s untimely death, the Brooklyn rapper was shot and killed in a deadly home invasion in Hollywood Hills, California. He was only 20 years old.
