US rap musician Meek Mill has been dragged on social media after rapping about late NBA superstar Kobe Bryant's tragic death. A snippet of an upcoming track by the US rapper featuring Lil Baby was shared by a Twitter user on Thursday, February 18.
US tweeps have flooded social media to slam the star for rapping about Kobe's death in the future release. Kobe died in a helicopter crash in January 2020. His 13-year-old daughter Gianna, six people and the pilot also died in the crash. In the now-deleted snippet, Meek raps:
"And if I ever lack I'm going out with my choppa it be another Kobe."
"I am once again asking that we cancel Meek Mill."
"Meek Mill fell off the deep end, W*F bro."
"Meek Mill actually thought that Kobe line was a good idea??"
"Meek Mill really thought that verse was acceptable..."
"Meek Mill really said 'I’ll go out with my choppa it’ll be another Kobe', he really decided to sit in the studio and say that line. So Nobody in his crew told him that wasn’t ok?"
Davido made this known after the US rapper took to Twitter in search of new Nigerian artists. However, fans were quick to let the singer know that Mill is in search of a fine art artist.
