The 100 Best Songs That Reference Kobe Bryant

Here are the 100 best songs that reference Kobe Bryant. When the legendary basketball player died unexpectedly in a helicopter crash in February 2020, there was seemingly no community not crushed by the loss. Bryant's legacy reached a global scale: past his five rings, the LA Laker was an Academy Award-winner, philanthropist, and inspirational figure throughout a diverse variety of cultures. 

But, outside of the sports world, there was perhaps no cultural institution more impacted by Bryant than the rap scene. From Drake's lyrics about Kobe, to Chief Keef's 2012 hip hop track "Kobe," there are countless songs which include Kobe lyrics, and many rap songs which entirely center around Kobe Bryant. After his death, Reddit user lutang2 put together a playlist of 81 songs which reference Black Mamba, and in honor of his legacy, we've put together a list of 100 good songs that pay tribute to Kobe.
