Brian Honeycutt, best known by his stage name Kobe or Kobe Honeycutt, is an American R&B recording artist and songwriter from Chicago, Illinois. He is perhaps best known for his collaborations with American rapper Eminem, including 2010's "Talkin' 2 Myself", "Cinderella Man" and 2014's "Die Alone".

Musical career[edit]

In 2007, Honeycutt wrote the refrain for 50 Cent and Akon's "I'll Still Kill", released as the fourth single from 50 Cent's third album Curtis (2007). In 2010, Honeycutt co-wrote Dr. Dre's "Kush", which features Snoop Dogg and Akon, and reached the Top 40 of the US Billboard Hot 100 chart.[1] Also in 2010, Honeycutt was featured on Eminem's seventh album Recovery, on the song "Talkin' 2 Myself". In 2011, Honeycutt won a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album for his contributions on Recovery. In July 2013, Honeycutt released a song titled "G on It", under the pseudonym Killa Kobe.[2]
