Bonding is always good, especially in L.A.
California is synonymous with greatness. The state has cultivated lanes for many notable artists, athletes, and celebrities. There’s a reason why The Eagles’ song “Hotel California” still resonates with today’s audience. Recently, two of California’s beloved stars, Snoop Dogg and Kobe Bryant, hung out together and bonded over their love for the Los Angeles Lakers. What Kobe didn’t expect was a huge gift from the Doggfather.
Snoop Dogg gives Kobe a gift.
The “Gin & Juice” rapper gave Kobe Bryant a special retirement gift after the five-time Lakers legend called it quits this past season. Instead of gifting Bryant a mundane trinket, Snoop got really creative and hooked Kobe up big-time. He gave him a purple and gold Lakers-themed convertible!
Snoop pays homage to the Lakers.
Snoop posted his gift to Kobe on his Instagram with the caption reading, “The gift that keeps on giving. Enjoy it mamba.” Snoop’s adoration for the Lakers has always been well documented. He was always an avid Lakers fan and has been a loyal attendee at the Staples Center since day one. He also was at Kobe’s swan song, in which Bryant dropped 60 points in his career finale.
Details about the cool car.
The hood of the car has a custom paint-job which features all of the Lakers greats. From Magic Johnson and James Worthy to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and even Kobe, Snoop made sure the notable Laker greats were featured on this purple and gold car. Snoop also made sure to add himself onto the hood, as he can be seen sporting a Lakers jersey holding the Larry O’Brien trophy.
