The Young Money star's unexpected cover shot alongside the Los Angeles Lakers icon hit the Internet earlier this week.

A leak has revealed Nicki Minaj and Kobe Bryant as the faces of the upcoming issue of ESPN Magazine. The offering has been dubbed the "The Music Issue" and will also feature stories on Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and look back on Janet Jackson's infamous Super Bowl wardrobe malfunction ten years ago. Not much more information is available, but stay tuned and we'll be sure to keep you updated. (XXL Mag)

Last year, Brooklyn rapper Fabolous spoke to SOHH about being a Lakers fan because of Koba a.k.a. The Black Mamba.

"He's played a long time," Fab added when asked for his take on Kobe's retirement coming sooner than later. "It's looking like it's at the end of his career. But you know, he could still ball with the best of 'em. Whenever he go, he's still going to be looked at as one of the greatest." (SOHH)

Recently, the self-proclaimed "Barbie" revealed she would put all priorities to the side to focus on an upcoming new LP.

"I already started, and I'm going home, actually tomorrow to really start. Like, I'm taking two months to just lock in. So I'm really excited, and the people that have been working with now have been people that I haven't worked with before, so it's like they're bringing a new sound to the album that I've never experimented with. ... I've got so much to talk about. In the features, I don't really delve into no deep sh*t. And with the album, thank God, I've experienced so much in the last year-and-a-half that there's so much for me to talk about. I know my fans are gonna be excited about it." (MTV)
