The Philadelphia rapper mentions the late NBA player in an upcoming song with Lil Baby.
Meek Mill faces a major backlash after mentioning Kobe Bryant in an upcoming song with Lil Baby.
An untitled excerpt from the song appeared on social media yesterday (February 17th), and the Fans were furious when they heard the 33-year-old Philadelphia rapper spat out a controversial line about the late NBA player.
“I’m going out with my Choppa, it’ll be another Kobe,” you can hear Meek knocking on the track. The highly insensitive lyric comes a little over a year after Kobe, his daughter Gianna, and seven others were tragically killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas.
Unsurprisingly, people are seeing rapper ‘Going Bad’ online have blown up for the move. “I ask once again that we cancel the gentle mill,” wrote one user.
“Meek Mill really thought this verse was acceptable …” added another while one tweeted, “Meek Mill was a clown, but also say this line about Kobe & a choppa …. .. ON BLACK HISTORY MONTH ??? ” .

This isn’t the first time Meek Mill has been at the center of controversy this month. Last weekend, the rapper met Tekashi 6ix9ine outside a club in Atlanta.
The couple met in the venue’s parking lot when Meek was leaving as 24-year-old rapper ‘GOOBA’ started yelling at him with explosions.
Both rappers exchanged insults while being greeted by security teams and followers were withheld. Both Meek and Tekashi filmed the argument from their point of view.
