Rapper Meek Mill Gets Heavily Blasted For ‘Disrespectful’ Kobe Bryant Verse (TWEETS)
Over a year ago, Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and seven others were killed in a fatal Calabasas helicopter crash. It was one of the worst moments in recent memory as every news station came to a standstill in complete shock over what happened.
Just weeks after the anniversary of the crash, rapper Meek Mill decided to reference the tragedy in a new song and he is getting blasted for it in a big way.
On a new song with Lil Baby, reportedly titled “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe),” Meek Mill drops the line “Yeah, and if I ever lack, I’m goin’ out with my choppa, it be another Kobe.” If you’re not aware of a double entendre, it is to not only to reference what happened to Kobe, but use “choppa” as slang for an automatic rifle.
Meek seemingly addressed the backlash on Twitter:
“Somebody promo a narrative and y’all follow it,” he wrote. “Y’all internet antics cannot stop me… shit like zombie land or something! Lol.”
In a follow-up tweet, he added,
“They paying to influence y’all now… [it’s] almost like mind control ‘wake up.’”
His two tweets did not help his cause.
