Kobe Bryant wasn’t only loved and respected in the world of sports.  He was also loved in the world of Hip Hop.  That is evident by how many times his name has been brought up in some of our favorite songs.

Rap’s elite such as Jay Z, Drake, Lil Wayne, and the Carolina’s own J. Cole and Rapsody have all made mention of “The Black Mamba” in their rhymes.  It is said that there are over 500 songs that reference the NBA legend.  I’m sure that number will continue to grow in the wake of his untimely death.

While I couldn’t identify all 500 songs, here are 24 of my favorites.  (yes, 24 for Kobe’s jersey number).

To get the full playlist, follow me on Apple Music “Ms. J Press Play(list)”.     WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE
