It's hard to believe how fast the time has flown since we lost Kobe Bryant.

Since he and his daughter Gigi lost their lives—along with seven others—in a catastrophic helicopter crash on January 26th, 2020, many are still reeling from the tragic loss. In Kobe's absence, the "Mamba Mentality" has materialized into a way of life for those people, who pull inspiration from his principles to chart a course for growth.

Tributes to the Los Angeles Lakers legend and 5-time NBA champion have poured in via social media on the anniversary of his death. A bevy of EDM artists have also paid homage to Kobe, further proving that his legacy extends far beyond the boundaries of the basketball world.

Check out a number of the tributes to Kobe below from the likes of Steve Aoki, SLANDER, and Kayzo, among others.
