“I’m a street corner nigga/ New York Knicks loyalist…”
“He’s a warrior, he’s a survivor. I got love for Kobe…”
Nas and Swizz Beatz were among the Hip-Hop elite on hand to celebrate Team USA’s gold-medal win over Spain in yesterday’s basketball final. Team members Kevin Durant, LeBron James, James Harden and other celebrities descended on Camden’s Roundhouse venue to close out their time in London.
Melo, Nas and Swizz hanging out is nothing new, but the above pic and Kobe quote from Nas is notable being that the Queens lyricist previously blasted Kobe as a sellout on his 2004 Street’s Disciple track “There Are Our Heroes.” In case you’ve forgot how wild that track was, see below. The song seems like a lifetime ago.
