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.
