Music mogul Master P once tried to fight late basketball legend Kobe Bryant, according to Lamar Odom.
Lamar told the story during an interview with DJ Vlad.
“The aura, the energy or the timing of it, [Kobe] wasn’t really kinda feeling it. You gotta understand, these are two alpha males and their own, in with what they do. [It was] Awkward. You feel me? So, I’m from the street so I can peep it,” Lamar told Vlad.
He continued: “So, I’m tryin’ to just dead it, but it was awkward. It wasn’t like, getting in the middle, but I’m just gonna check both of they temperatures and make sure they cool. I’m gonna use my Jamaica, Queens instinct. The energy was just off between them.”
Master P confirmed that he had a hostile encounter with Kobe during an appearance on The Red Pill With Van Lathan podcast in 2018.
“I almost got into it with Kobe before,” he said. “At the Lakers facility. Lamar Odom kind of cooled it off.”
“You know how Kobe is,” he added. “The Lakers is his facility. So, it was just one of those things. That’s his place, which it was.”
