That is the billion dollar question Kendrick Lamar poses midway during his video sendoff to NBA great, Kobe Bryant. After five championships, 18 All-Star Games, two Finals MVPs and one for the 2008 NBA season, the 37-year-old basketball anomaly is set to play his final game of professional ball today April 13.
He will retire as the third all-time scoring leader behind Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Karl Malone andaheadof Michael Jordan.
In the vein of one Los Angeles legend to another, K. Dot was asked by ESPN to give #8 and #24 a fitting sendoff, penned by Scoop Jackson. The three-minute clip does impeccable job of rounding up most of Bryant’s on-court accomplishments (the 81-point game, the rebellious afro days, the Blazers Playoff unraveling) as the Hip Hop superstar seemingly enjoyed doing the feature all the same.
The song used to empower the clip is “untitled 07 – 2014 – 2016,” from Lamar’s recently released and Billboard chart-topping compilation, untitled unmastered.
