Leonard, who notoriously keeps his private life private and is not active on social media, appeared on Instagram live for the first time on Monday to make the announcement and share a snippet of the song "Everything Different," featuring NBA YoungBoy and Rod Wave.
"It just merges basketball and music together. It's always been something on my mind that I wanted to do, so it's just something that can uplift our community. A portion of each stream is gonna go to the Mamba & Mambacita Foundation," the Los Angeles Clippers star said during a press conference on May 4.
The late NBA legend Kobe Bryant and two-time NBA Finals MVP were friends and even trained together. Just weeks after Bryant’s death, Leonard was named the recipient of the 2020 NBA All-Star Game Kobe Bryant MVP award following his 30-point explosive performance.
The music project is set to be released sometime later this year.
