"Kobe Bryant" vs. "Fat Albert"
As Weezy F. has an entire song dedicated to his favorite NBA team's star, it's gonna be hard to top Kobe on this one. The song, which leaked back in 2009, features a sampled intro from Kobe himself, as well as Stephen A. Smith, and plenty of slick references to actual facts. "I drops 40 on your double team/Then I drop 81 on another team" nods to the time he scored the second most points in a game for a single player, "I went to Beijing and came back with the bling" pays tribute to his stint as Olympic team captain, and who can forget the breakdown of his teammates at the time: "Properly dishing it to Gasol/Or give it to D-Fish on the wing, yeah/Or just let lil' Ariza do his thing, yeah." Lil Wayne's admiration of Bryant is on full display here.
"Fat Albert," a collaboration with Curren$y that Weezy dropped last year, may not be entirely dedicated to Steph Curry, but it does have a great winking reference to him. "Bad bitch stop and poppin' like Steph Curry/Rich n*gga laughin' at his bills like Bill Murray" he raps on one of his recent best verses, comparing the star's pull-up jumpers to the way his girl pops either pills or her pussy (you be the judge). It's in no way as admiring as the entirety of "Kobe Bryant" is, but it's still one of the more entertaining Steph references on this list.
