Lil Wayne Pays Tribute to His Friend Kobe Bryant with a Special Performance at 2020 BET Awards

When it came time to pay tribute to those we’ve lost this year at the 2020 BET Awards on Sunday (June 28), Lil Wayne stepped up to pay tribute to his friend Kobe Bryant.

As footage of Bryants career filled the screen, Wayne emerged on a digital stage (with the number 24 up in lights behind him) to perform an updated version of his 2009 track “Kobe Bryant,” where the star laid out Bryant’s talent for everyone watching. “Kobe doin’ work, 2-4 on my shirt/ He the greatest on the court, and I’m the greatest on the verse,” Weezy rapped.

But when it came time to hit his next verse, Wayne gave an updated version of his song, this time speaking directly to Bryant’s legacy, the current movement, and a message for his family: “Heart goes out to Vanessa and the whole Black Mamba family.”

Wayne was just one of many performances at the show — he was joined by stars like John Legend, Alicia Keys, Megan Thee Stallion and many more.
