It's been a week and a half since Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others died in a helicopter accident.
The NBA legend is still on the minds of many and JAY-Z was asked about him during a talk yesterday at Columbia University.

"So Kobe was a guy that looked up to me and we've hung out multiple times," Jay-Z responded. "He was last in my house on New Year's and he was just in the greatest space I've seen him in and one of the last things he said to me was, 'You've gotta see Gianna play basketball,'" Jay-Z said. "That was one of the most hurtful things because he was so proud. The look on his face...I looked at him and said, 'Oh she's going to be the best female basketball player in the world.' He was just so proud of what he said. That was a tough one. My wife and I are taking that really tough. That's all I say on that. Just a great human being who was in a great space in his life."
