Rapper Meek Mill has come under fire, with some calling for him to be canceled over a lyric about the late NBA superstar Kobe Bryant in his leaked song “Don’t Worry.” 

In the first verse of the unreleased track, which features Lil Baby, Mill’s raps, ‘This b**ch I’m f**kin’ always tell me that she love me, but she ain’t ever showed me / Yeah, and if I ever lack, I’m goin’ out with my chopper, it be another Kobe.”

As the song made its rounds on social media, fans began to slam the “Going Bad” rapper for mentioning Bryant, who died in a helicopter crash in January 2020. 

“Yo that Meek Mill Kobe bar is completely disrespectful. Idgaf nobody should be mentioning Kobe’s death in any manner especially on some corny ass sh*t like that,” one user wrote, while another said: “Meek Mill been a clown but to say that line about Kobe & a choppa... ON BLACK HISTORY MONTH???”

While a third commented on the timing of the lyrics, saying, “I don't know when I'll be ready to hear a song that references Kobe, but I know it ain't now & I know that line Meek Mill just dropped ain't it. Let that man RIP a little longer & the next man who wants to try, work a little harder to ensure that your bar isn't so disrespectful.” Another user called the lyrics "insensitive, terrible, disgusting and appalling."

Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gianni, were among the nine people killed in the helicopter crash in the Calabasas neighborhood of Los Angeles on January 26, 2020. As OK! reported, earlier this month, officials from the National Transportation Safety Board said the pilot, Ara Zobayan, suffered from “spatial disorientation” and became disoriented while flying through the clouds and “did not know which way was up,” causing the helicopter to ultimately crash. 

Mill's controversial lyrics come on the heels of the rapper getting into an altercation with Tekashi 6ix9ine outside an Atlanta nightclub. Video from the incident showed both rappers yelling at one another.  

“We did not run into each other. I was getting in my car he just popped out,” Mill tweeted on February 14, detailing the incident. “We almost was smoking on that 69 pack for the love of a viral moment… he tryna get something locked up no cap lol.”
