Snoop delivered a heartfelt tribute to Kobe Bryant last night during a virtual ESPY Awards. In the over two-minute video, Snoop Dogg rapped about how much Kobe meant to the Los Angeles community. Snoop did so by documenting Kobe’s career from his jump from high school to the NBA in 1996 to his numerous accolades.
“From Compton to Long Beach to Watts we all peeped and watched you,” Snoop rapped. “From Crenshaw to Malibu/We was all proud of you.”
In addition to the Kobe Bryant tribute, the 2020 ESPY Awards dedicated a segment to the Black Lives Matter movement. Athletes Russell Wilson, Megan Rapinoe, and Sue Bird appeared in a five-minute video to call for unity against racial injustice following the murder of George Floyd and countless other Black individuals.
