Meek Mill’s leaked snippet of a song with a lyric about Kobe, got people giving the Philly rapper heat.
In the rap world, fans sometimes give rap artists some leeway when making outrageous lyrics about death. However, the Philadelphia rapper may have gone too far with a lyric about death in terms of comparing the fatality of Kobe Bryant’s helicopter accident.
In a preview about a collaboration between him and Lil Baby, where lyrics were delivered of “And if I ever lack I’m going out with my choppa it be another Kobe / Sh*t I can tell they ain’t never know me,” rapped Meek. Moments later, Lil Baby says, “I damn near wanna have a son so I can name him Kobe.”
The fans were ok with Lil Baby’s line, but not so much with Meek’s. The rapper took to social media to defend himself stating, “somebody promo a narrative and y’all follow it…. y’all internet antics cannot stop me ….shit like zombie land or something! Lol”

People tryna start shit for no reason the line clearly was not meant to disrespect Kobe in anyway.

In my opinion it was disrespectful and distasteful. A lot of people died in that accident and a lot of people are still torn up. Some people just don’t understand that it’s inappropriate
