WATCH: Singer JXN Opens Up About His Kobe Bryant Tribute Tattoo & Yeh We're Crying A Lil Bit
It's been two months since the untimely death of basketball legend, Kobe Bryant, but the sting of his passing is still being keenly felt around the world.
For YouTuber and singer, JXN (a former semi-pro basketballer himself), he's still coming to terms with the fact one of his heroes is gone.
We chatted to JXN and caught up with him for some Recess on Instagram Live, where he opened up about the impact Kobe had on him.
"I got a little tattoo for Kobe," he said. "It says 8:24 in shot clock writing."
He recently got the tatt paying homage to the great by referencing the two jersey numbers he played with throughout his career in the NBA.
"It's tragic to be honest. Terrible news to wake up to."
You can see JXN showing off his tattoo in our interview below:
