Critics are blasting rapper Meek Mill after he referred on a leaked track to the helicopter crash that killed basketball superstar Kobe Bryant.
In the song “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe)” – a collaboration with L’il Baby – Mill raps: “Yeah, and if I ever lack, I’m goin ‘out with my chopper; it be another Kobe, ”E! Online and several other media outlets reported Thursday.
The 41 – year-old Los Angeles Lakers legend, his 13 – year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven other people were killed just over a year ago when the chopper they were in went down in Calabasas, California.
Mill was roundly bashed for being “disrespectful” for attempting to capitalize on Bryant’s tragic death and for Mill’s arrogance in comparing himself to the sports legend.
I do not know when I’ll be ready to hear a song that references Kobe, but I know it ain’t now, “and Meek Mill’s line” ain’t it, “tweeted Washington Post sports reporter Michael Lee. “Let that man RIP a little longer.”
I do not know when I’ll be ready to hear a song that references Kobe, but I know it ain’t now & I know that line Meek Mill just dropped ain’t it. Let that man RIP a little longer & the next man who wants to try, work a little harder to ensure that your bar is not so disrespectful.
