    Cube smoked so many people and has and records F the police he promotes people to kill . So many black guys wanted to be cool and acted on Cubes Lyrics. Now he sounds sensitive cares about life wow he should put in his lyrics. He should say F the Killers. Meanwhile he became rich peoplenacted on his lyrics and didnt think twice because he was oppressed.

    Hearing Richard's thoughts on Kobe and the story with his parents meeting him for the first time was so warming to hear, what a kind hearted and massively considerate man he was. He just sounds so down to earth and somebody who would happily approach you, rather than you have to approach him. No ego attached, he was a very humble human being and is sadly lost to the world, but his legacy will live on forever. Much Love and respect to you Kobe, may you and your daughter Rest in Peace internally x x

    *******GRAPHIC********** If you zoom into the upclose photo of Kobe’s chopper on fire there’s a white piece from the plane Closer to the flames there’s Kobe’s decapitated charred head It was really NO ONE’S FAULT Kobe and Ara had flown before in similar conditions. Not one distress call came from anyone inside the chopper, meaning everyone was calm and confident they would arrive shortly at Camarillo airport They didn’t see it coming, they died instantly, no suffering

    Kobe's death has really shook up the world. It's like losing a great leader, because he sure was an outstanding one. But like the guy said sometimes we fail to realize, about leaders, they are human like us, that he was also a husband, father, son. Even so, we still grieve, and just try to see if God is trying to tell us something. ✌❤🙏

    What a life this young man, Kobe Bryant lived! I am so inspired by his energy and work ethic. His death is so traumatic because he did not just die. His death, his daughter's and that of those other people was just so tragic. The horror of their demise and the suffering of his loved ones and friends has been like a shockwave that has rippled throughout the world. It is more meaningful than we realize. When he arrives to his spiritual home, they will say: "You did good!"

    When I found out one of my school friend of 6 years died (he was 19) the first thing I did was message him. It wasn’t confirmed yet that it was him or if it was true, but he didn’t reply. It’s one of the worst feelings ever.

    Celtics fan here. Living past Kobe doesn't feel good. Hated him as a Laker because he beat us so many times, but I love him as a person. Not enough people talking about his children's books, his web series, the charity he gave - the way he inspired me and everyone to be a better person just by being who he is. I am a 32 year old Celtics fan who was almost positive I would pass away before Kobe. It is KOBE...he is supposed to live until 240! I am still besidr myself knowing what this world lost. He could have been an ambassador, not just for the game kf basketball, but for humanity.

    👍😔The news of the tragic helicopter crash was heartbreaking. I’m glad to see Ice Cube (and Snoop in another video) say a few words and give his respects regarding Kobe passing away. 😔 I would like to hear something from Denzel Washington, Danny Glover, Jack Nicholson, Robert DeNero, Morgan Freeman, Clint Eastwood, Will Smith, Brad Pitt, Jamie Fox and a few other celebrities. 😔💞

    Cube and Kobe characters are roles played by actors. One character is dead Nick and his daughter are still alive.
