Michael Jordan: The Last Dance

Kenny received a bump in popularity in March 2020, thanks to a memorable scene in the Michael Jordan documentary "The Last Dance." In footage that was filmed during the 1998 NBA Finals, Jordan is seen bumping his head to music in the back of the team bus while wearing headphones. Michael tells the camera that he's listening to the new Kenny Lattimore that no one has heard yet because he gets the albums straight from Kenny. The shot of Jordan jamming to the music quickly became a meme.
