Drake paid homage to LeBron James on Monday night, but on Tuesday, he tipped his cap to another Laker legend -- Kobe Bryant -- and the impromptu tribute to the Mamba was pretty cool.
Drizzy was performing yet another show at Crypto.com Arena as part of his "It's All A Blur" tour -- his sixth stop in the City of Angels this month -- and when someone threw a black, Bryant Lakers jersey on stage ... he paused his show to remember the Hall of Famer.
The 36-year-old rapper picked up the No. 24 uni and told the sold-out crowd at the venue where Bryant played almost all of his home games for his entire NBA career, "I'mma hold this up 'cause we got to show love to Kobe one time."
"Ya'll make some noise for Kobe at this time," he added.
The fans in attendance roared for several moments ... before Drake continued on with his performance.
It's the second time in as many days that Drake has urged his crowd to support the Lakers -- at Monday's show in Crypto, he featured James and the L.A. star's son, Bronny, a couple times during the concert.
Tuesday's tribute, though, was perhaps the most fitting ... considering this week is a special one for Bryant and his family.
Aug. 23 is Kobe's birthday -- and Aug. 24 is "Kobe Bryant Day," a 24-hour period where L.A. officials have encouraged Angelenos to remember the basketball player who tragically died in a helicopter crash in 2020.
