Leaked Meek Mill song with verse about Kobe Bryant’s death sparks criticism


Meek Mill faces criticism over a lead that has leaked online with a verse referring to the helicopter crash that killed NBA star Kobe Bryant.

The song, titled “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe)” is a collaboration with Mill and rapper Lil Baby. In the song, Mill raps the verse “Yeah, and if I ever miss, I go out with my helicopter, it’ll be another Kobe,” the website Complex reported Thursday.

The lyrics are a reference to the death of the Lower Merion High School basketball star. Bryant, his daughter Gianna and seven others were killed in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. On January 26, 2020.

Kobe Bryant was 41 and Gianna Bryant 13. The other victims of the crash were teammates of Gianna Bryant’s basketball team, their parents and the helicopter pilot.

The reaction to Mill’s words about Bryant’s death spread to social media on Wednesday and Thursday. The North Philly rapper has been overwhelmingly berated for being deaf at the mention.

Mill did not directly refer to his detractors on social media, but according to the 33-year-old’s tweets, the rapper was aware of what was going on.

The leaked lead comes days after Mill and rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine argued in person in the parking lot outside an Atlanta club in the early morning of Valentine’s Day. The two rappers had previously argued for months on social media.

6ix9ine and Mill yelled at each other while recording the spit on their phones and being held more than a distance from each other by their respective security teams.
