Top Dawg Entertainment’s Kendrick Lamar is helping ease the pain of seeing Los Angeles Lakers icon Kobe Bryant prepare to play his final NBA game this week with a must-see production.

A new clip of K. Dot delivering a powerful speech about Kobe’s career has emerged online.

Between Tuesday and Kobe Bryant’s final game on Wednesday night, you’ll see an endless stream of tributes to the Los Angeles Lakers legend (and that’s as it should be). But it’s possible none of them will match this awesomeness: Kendrick Lamar — with help from ESPN’s Scoop Jackson — doing a poem about the guard along with some of his greatest shots, posterizings and on-court moments.

The NBA veteran revealed his decision in an open letter titled “Dear Basketball” last year.

You gave a six-year-old boy his Laker dream
And I’ll always love you for it.
But I can’t love you obsessively for much longer.
This season is all I have left to give.
My heart can take the pounding
My mind can handle the grind
But my body knows it’s time to say goodbye. (“Dear Basketball”)
