Lou Williams has a new EP on the way this week, but before it drops he’s shared a touching tribute to the late Kobe Bryant.

Titled after Kobe’s jersey number, “24” sees Williams explaining what Kobe meant to him as both a friend and a former teammate.

Taken from his new six-song EP Syx Piece, dropping Feb. 14, the song also sees Williams reflect on how Kobe encouraged him to always strive to be the best.

Following Kobe’s death on Jan. 26, Williams made it clear just how much Kobe meant to him.
