Tryna get that Kobe number, one over Jordan

from T.I. (Ft. Jay Z, Kanye West & Lil Wayne) – Swagga Like Us Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Kanye’s trying to take things up a level. Kobe Bryant wears #24, one higher than Michael Jordan’s #23

This also applies to the number of championships each have. Kobe is currently at 5, whereas Jordan won 6. Kobe is still striving for one more than Jordan. Assuming he gets to 7, that’s one more to Jordan.

Kanye wants to be the best and beat those who are considered the best.

Kobe also wore #10 in the Olympics as Jordan wore #9. Seeing a pattern here.
