Lil Wayne Honors Kobe Bryant on ‘Funeral’ Album

Once news of the legendary basketball player's passing broke, Lil Wayne took to Instagram to pay tribute.

Rapper Lil Wayne has released a new album "Funeral" four years after he first hinted about the project. But my fans all, they also know that once it's put out, they already know I'm moving on. "They already know I got 20 more albums already in my back pocket", Weezy continued. Fans believe that the 24 seconds is Wayne's subtle way of honoring the late Lakers champ. In addition to these tributes on the rapper's 13th studio album, he also took to Instagram on January 27 to share a photo of him fist-bumping the basketball legend with the caption, "Forever love".

Wayne's "Funeral" album happens to have 24 tracks - but he told Skip Bayless that was just a coincidence.

GM revives Hummer as all-electric vehicle
James' mother bought him a new HUMMER H2 when he was a senior in high school, so he has a connection to the brand. Around 10 years later, GM is now relaunching the brand though with an all-electric powertrain lineup.

Funeral, follows Wayne's 2018 Tha Carter V, which "debuted No. 1 on Billboard 200 with Second-Largest Streaming Week Ever for an Album, " according to Billboard. The singer's new album dropped on January 31, less that one week after the tragic helicopter crash that killed Kobe and eight other people on board, including his 13-year-old daughter Gianna.

"Everybody know, obviously very awful day for sports", Wayne said. "I have kids, man. Again, thoughts and prayers to the families".

Prior to that, Kobe wore the No. 8 jersey.
