From one Los Angeles icon to another, Snoop Dogg gave Kobe Bryant a retirement gift that can only be described as the most "LA" of gifts on Wednesday.

Snoop Dogg also tweeted a photo of the car, the yellow hood adorned with various Lakers players, and even Snoop himself in jersey No. 20. 

"The gift that keeps on giving. Enjoy it mamba," Snoop Dogg said on social media showing off a custom hood that featured Laker greats Wilt Chamberlain, Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar among others. The hood also had the words "Show Time" on the top with Snoop Dogg wearing a no. 20 Lakers' jersey in the middle.

Snoop Dogg is no stranger to the Lakers or Bryant, and the 44-year-old rapper also managed to enjoy Bryant's final game live at Staples Center. In the past, the rapper has also helped remix the popular song "Black and Yellow" to "Purp and Yellow" as an ode to Bryant and the Lakers.

In that song, Snoop Dogg's verse starts with, "Swish! Twenty-four! That's Black Mamba," as a clear reference to Bryant's jersey number and nickname.
