Interscope feeling like Charlotte when they traded Kobe you know?

from Wale – Barry Sanders Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is a reference to the 1996 NBA draft when the Charlotte Hornets selected Kobe Bryant with the 13th pick and subsequently trades his rights to the Los Angeles Lakers for Vlade Divac (see forthcoming line). Here Wale is comparing Charlotte’s transactional blunder to that of Interscope’s decision to cut ties with him.
