Snoop Dogg is revisiting fond memories of Kobe Bryant. During an appearance on "Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen," the rapper opened up about the time the late athlete "flew to come and see me and hang out with me for a day."
"I picked him up in my lowrider and brought him back to my studio and when he left, I gave him the lowrider," Snoop Dogg told Cohen, via People. "It became a part of his car collection."
The musician said he felt "like a little kid" thinking back to that day, which he described as "the greatest moment ever."
During the interview, Snoop Dogg also explained the Los Angeles Lakers tattoo on his forearm, which he debuted in October after the Lakers clinched the 17th national title. The tattoo features the Lakers logo, the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy, and Kobe's initials.
"So combining the two with the trophy and his initials made perfect sense," he told Cohen.
Kobe died with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna in a helicopter crash on Jan. 26, 2020. Ahead of the anniversary of their death, his wife, Vanessa Bryant, pleaded with the media not to publish images of the helicopter wreckage and accident scene.
"We do NOT want to see it," she wrote in an Instagram post over the weekend. "Our year has been traumatic enough. You have thousands of photos and videos you can show besides footage of 1/26/20. We hope videos of remembrance are done in a classy and tasteful manner that is respectful of all our losses. Thank you."
