Kobe and Nicki Minaj Grace Cover of ESPN’s Annual Music Issue

    Kobe Bryant and Nicki Minaj are not the likeliest of duos, but ESPN the magazine recognizes them both as being at the very pinnacle of their respective professions. This is likely why they have been selected to appear together on the cover of the glossy mag’s annual music issue. The cover featuring Bryant and Minaj is one of three editions that will hit newsstands on Jan. 26. The other covers will team Kendrick Lamar with Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers and Eminem alongside Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
