Fabolous Pays Tribute To The Black Mamba With New Track


Mamba Day made almost every grown man shed a tear. From the step back fadeaway to hitting 60 points during his final game, there will never be another Kobe Bryant.

Among the pouring support for the Laker legend comes Fabolous with “Black Mamba Freestyle”. The song flips Jay Z and Linkin Park’s “Numb/Encore” sound into a Boom-Bap nostalgic production. Fab’s freestyle completes the tone as he talks about our desire for a Kobe encore and how his own come up back in the day was comparable to “number 8 and a fro”. Fab and Kobe’s longevity is admirable, and a freestyle by the rap game’s punchline heavyweight is fitting for one of the toughest ball players to ever step on the hardwood.

Some people might not understand how much it hurts to see this man hang up his sneakers, but his legacy will live forever. Grab a tissue box, some old Laker tapes, and listen to “Black Mamba Freestyle” below.
