After the snippet of a previously unreleased collaboration with Lil Baby went viral, Meek Mill found himself on the receiving end of a backlash. The rapper from Philadelphia is heard in the clip rapping the line “Yeah and if I ever miss it I’ll go out with my choppa / it’ll be another KobeAnd the public was quick to denounce him for his choice of bars. Meek seemed defiant in his response and even shared a picture of a hat with Kobe Bryant and the names of his late 13-year-old daughter Gianna to show he wasn’t being disrespectful, but He did not offer the apology that many believe he should have.

The controversy soon dissipated and new viral moments have taken their place, but almost a week later, Vanessa Bryant has come forward to address the lyrics. “Dear @meekmil, I find this line extremely insensitive and disrespectful. Period,” Kobe’s widow shared on her Instagram story. “I’m not familiar with your music, but I think you can do better than this.”

“If you’re a fan that’s fine, there’s a better way to show your admiration for my husband,” she continued. “This lacks respect.” Soon, Meek resurfaced with a tweet. “I’m going to get wild in this shit … f #% k ya feelings!” he wrote. It is not clear what he is referring to, but you can check the posts below.
