Kendrick Lamar pays tribute to Kobe Bryant as he gets ready to play his final NBA game as a Los Angeles Laker.
“How do empires last when there’s no longer an emperor?” Kendrick asks in the ESPN clip. “I mean, we got you, but at the same time, we got you. Your blood, your sweat, your tears, and even your DNA is placed in these L.A. concretes, man. Nothing will ever replace that or erase that. Forever great in our hearts. With that being said, know that it’s never goodbye. It’s simply respect due…forever.”
