Run-D.M.C. member Rev Run says that years ago the hip-hop group recorded music with Kobe Bryant, although it was never released. Run says, “We met at the studio because Kobe at that time had a relationship with Adidas and we had the big record ‘My Adidas.’”
Run says it was a “great night” and that Kobe was excited to meet them. “It was beautiful hanging with Kobe,” he says. Recently, at the Grammys, Run-D.M.C. paid tribute to Bryant when their DJ held up his No. 24 Lakers jersey.
As for the unreleased track, Rev Run has no idea where it is but remains hopeful: “Somebody will find it.”
