“Kobe Was The Basketball Version Of Me” – Kanye West

HEP | April 16, 2020

Kanye West got eyes popping and tongues wagging following his recent interview with GQ – with whom he shared the quote in the title box above with.

The American rapper and record producer who is still promoting his ‘Jesus is King’ album, compared himself to the late basketball legend while speaking with the publication as the MAY 2020 cover star.

He said:

“One thing I thought was really amazing is that we were able to find a groove with the photographs today even as out of it as I was with the loss of Kobe. We were able to just go to the court and play ball. There’s one street that I drive to go from either my office or my home to the property where the domes were built. [Editor’s note: The street is Las Virgenes Road, the site of the helicopter crash that killed Kobe Bryant and eight other people just four days prior.] So now there’s no way for me not to be as determined as Kobe every time I drive down that street. It’s game time. There’s no move that we can’t make, or that we’ll wait to make. Everyone in our life is now a member of the Lakers on one of Kobe’s championship teams. The way that Kobe would say that we all have to come together and win this championship is the way I look at life now. To an infinite, other level.

This is a game changer for me. He was the basketball version of me, and I was the rap version of him, and that’s facts! We got the commercials that prove it. No one else can say this. We came up at the same time, together.”
