From Lil Wayne’s Kobe Bryant tribute to Beyoncé’s humanitarian award speech, this year’s BET Awards gave viewers many unforgettable moments.

As footage of Bryant's career filled the screen, Wayne emerged on a digital stage (with the number 24 up in lights behind him) to perform an updated version of his 2009 track "Kobe Bryant," where the star laid out Bryant's talent for everyone watching. "Kobe doin' work, 2-4 on my shirt/ He the greatest on the court, and I'm the greatest on the verse," Weezy rapped.

You can see Lil Wayne's performance below;

Wayne gave an updated version of his song, this time speaking directly to Bryant's legacy, the current movement, and a message for his family: "Heart goes out to Vanessa and the whole Black Mamba family."

Just another reminder just how crappy 2020 has been.
