Former Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant knows how to surround himself with greatness. The Black Mamba has hit up social media to share an epic pic himself and music icon JAY-Z.

The five-time NBA champion went to Instagram this week with the priceless moment from last Sunday’s Academy Awards festivities.

This week, West Coast rap heavyweight Snoop Dogg saluted Kobe on winning the Best Animated Short Film Oscar for his Dear Basketball project.

The headline-generating win also sparked handfuls co-signs from former Los Angeles Lakers Hall Famers Shaquille O’Neal and Magic Johnson.

During his acceptance speech, Bryant let loose a few emotions.
