Gotta get the gleam. He was 41. with new lyrics to honor Mamba and Gianna. It all went down at the BET Awards — where Wayne debuted a new music video for the song, performing in front of the screen with Kobe’s name on it. “Two fingers for the Mambacita. I’m screamin’ ‘Black Mamba matters.'”
He continued … And I’m the greatest on the verse.Goin’ for the 4th ring like it was his 1st… 2-4 so nice. “Heart goes out to Vanessa and the whole Black Mamba family.”
“G-O-A-T like Kobe Bean, rest in power and hope for peace.”
Vanessa acknowledged it on her IG page — calling the performance a “beautiful tribute.”
Kobe, Gianna and 7 others passed away in a helicopter crash on January 26. The original lyrics already painted Kobe as a legend:
“He the greatest on the court … 6/29/2020 6:15 AM PT
Special moment from Lil Wayne on Sunday night — he perfumed his 2009 track, “Kobe Bryant” … Do it for Kareem … She was only 13. RIP My flow is so mean.”
But, in the wake of recent events, Weezy updated the track to acknowledge the passing of Kobe and Gianna.
