Last night, Kobe Bryant's 20-year career in the NBA came to an end after an epic performance in front of a sold out Staples Center crowd in Los Angeles. Leading his Lakers to a thrilling win and scoring a season high 60 points, Kobe dazzled basketball fans from all over the world. Thanking Kobe for his incredible performance and outstanding career, the hip-hop community lit up social media last night praising the living legend.

From the likes of Diddy to Big Sean and Fabolous, hip-hop's finest were tuned in last night watching Kobe leave it all on the court for a final time. Others like Kendrick Lamar, Jay Z, Kanye West, Snoop Dogg and more, were the lucky ones to witness The Black Mamba go vintage with his epic 60-point performance. The outpour and love from the hip-hop community towards Kobe has been ongoing this season since Lakers' superstar guard announced his plans of retirement in November of 2015.

It may be a sad day for basketball now that Kobe Bryant is officially retired, but The Black Mamba's legacy will live on forever. Here's how hip-hop reacted to Kobe's incredible and unforgettable final NBA game. Long Live The Black Mamba!!!
