Snoop Dogg revealed special moment with Kobe Bryant in a touching gesture

On Sunday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, the rapper was asked about his favorite memory with the late athlete. The Grammy-nominated star then recounted a time when Bryant “flew to come and see me and hang out with me for a day.”

Bryant retired from the Lakers in April after 20 seasons in L.A. He posted a picture on Twitter of him and Snoop standing by the purple and gold car Wednesday.

“I picked him up in my lowrider and brought him back to my studio and when he left, I gave him the lowrider. It became a part of his car collection,” Snoop told.

“I’m like a little kid just thinking about it,” he continued. “That was the greatest moment ever.”

The rapper is a well-known Lakers fanatic. He once showed off his personal Lakers-themed basketball court during a tour of his home on “MTV Cribs.” Snoop described Bryant as being “so hospitable to everybody” in the rapper’s residential building during his visit with the “Gin and Juice” hitmaker.

“I’m talking about the people that take the trash out to the rappers … everybody, they all left there saying, ‘This is a great guy, and I’m happy I met him in real life.”

Of the tattoo he debuted back in October following the Los Angeles Lakers’ clinching of their 17th national title, Snoop told Cohen, 52, that he got it because he “wanted to do something that could represent the championship and Kobe Bryant.”

“So combining the two with the trophy and his initials made perfect sense,” he explained of the body art featuring the Lakers championship trophy and a “KB” for Byrant.

Snoop’s interview about Bryant comes almost one year after Bryant died at age 41 in a helicopter crash that killed eight others, including his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna.

Last June, Snoop premiered a very special tribute to the late athlete during the 2020 ESPY Awards, rapping as video of the athlete (as well as footage of the many stunning murals that have popped up in tribute to Bryant) played.

“All grit no smile … Let’s do it mamba style,” Snoop rapped as he took viewers through Bryant’s career highlights, later adding, “Back-to-back-to-back champion. Gunnin’ for the pantheon. The L.A. X-factor.”

“A friend and leader, understandably. And you did it candidly,” Snoop continued of the late NBA star during his performance. “Your reign in the city remains … greatness in your name.”
