Vanessa Bryant Checks Meek Mill Over "Insensitive" & "Disrespectful" Kobe Bryant Lyric


Recommended Posts

After the snippet of an unreleased collaboration with Lil Baby went viral, Meek Mill found himself on the receiving end of backlash. The Philadelphia rapper is heard in the clip rapping the line, "Yeah, and if I ever lack I'm goin' out with my choppa / It be another Kobe," and the public quickly denounced him for his choice of bars. Meek seemed defiant in his response and even shared an image of a hat with Kobe Bryant and his late 13-year-old daughter Gianna's names on it to show he wasn't being disrespectful, but he didn't offer the apology that many believe he should have given.

The controversy soon dissipated and new viral moments have taken its place, but almost a week later, Vanessa Bryant has come forward to address the lyrics. "Dear @meekmil , I find this line to be extremely insensitive and disrespectful. Period," Kobe's widow shared to her Instagram Story. "I am not familiar with any of your music, but I believe you can do better than this."

"If you are a fan, 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 back savage in this sh*t ... f#%k ya feelings!" he wrote. It's unclear what he's referring to, but you can check out the posts below.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
