According to Complex's Abel Shifferaw and Trace William Cowen, Meek Mill collaborated with Lil Baby on a track titled "Don't Worry (RIP Kobe)." In one verse, he says, "Yeah, and if I ever lack, I'm goin' out with my chopper, it be another Kobe."
Vanessa Bryant called the line "extremely insensitive and disrespectful" on Instagram:
Meek Mill tweeted on Tuesday morning that he apologized to Vanessa:
Kobe was traveling with his daughter Gianna and seven others to one of her games at Mamba Sports Academy. The helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California, killing everybody aboard.
According to CNN, the National Transportation Safety Board determined the crash was "entirely preventable" as pilot Ara Zobayan "pushed the limits of bad weather flying rules."
Vanessa Bryant filed a wrongful death suit against Island Express Helicopters, which employed Zobayan, in February 2020.
