Lil Wayne seems to have this weird obsession with Kobe Bryant. First, he was unsure whether he was LeBron or Kobe on his "Show Me What You Got" freestyle. Then he took photos with the dude for VIBE's December '09 issue. Then he just straight up made an entire song dedicated to the dude.

David Banner spoke with XXL about Tunechi's progress on Carter IV and compared his work ethic to KB24. "Wayne is like Kobe Bryant right now," said Banner who is apparently contributing production for Wayne's highly-anticipated LP. We're just hoping Mr. Banner doesn't give us something like this again.
