Veteran hip hop artiste and music mogul, Jay – Z has revealed the last thing his late friend and basketball legend, Kobe Bryant told him.
Jay Z while addressing the press at Columbia University on Tuesday said he and his wife, Beyonce were sad and shocked following the death of Bryant.
Bryant, Gianna and seven others died when his helicopter crashed into a hillside in southern California.
The music mogul said Kobe during his last conversation with him made boast of how proud he was of his daughter Gigi and her basketball skills.
“Kobe was just in the greatest space that I’ve seen him in.
“One of the last things he said to me was, you’ve gotta see Gianna play basketball. ”
Jay Z stressed that this was one of the most hurtful things after their death because Kobe was so proud of Gigi.
“And the look on his face was joyful and I said to him, ‘Oh, she’s going to be the best female basketball player in the world.”
“He was just so proud. So that’s really a tough one.
“My wife and I took the death of Kobe and Gigi really tough. That’s all I’ll say on that.
“He was a great human being and was in a great space in his life.”
