It’s been a pretty emotional week for basketball fans around the world as Kobe Bryant played his final game after a 20-year run with the Los Angeles Lakers. He went out with a bang as he put up an impressive 60 points in his farewell game Wednesday night against the Utah Jazz.

Kobe has not only made an impact in the sports world, but in the music world as well. Some of you may have remembered when Kobe Bryant himself dabbled into rapping, most chose to forget.
