Certain things are just off-limits, like anything that derided the legend of the late Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryanttragic death in a helicopter crash on January 26, 2020 at the age of 41. Gentle mill used Kobe’s fatal accident in a new song that leaked February 17 and the widow of the late NBA icon Vanessa Bryant now call him for it. She released lyrics that appeared online last week under the new Meek song “Don’t Worry (RIP Kobe),” which is part of a new collaboration with Lil baby to their Instagram stories. The line made fans angry, and now Vanessa weighs in.
“The people who I am always tell me that she loves, but she never showed me,” was the first line, the next was: “Yes, and if I ever miss it, it will be me.” If I go out in my helicopter, it’s another Kobe. “His name is part of rhyme. Mention of Kobe’s fatal helicopter crash that also killed his 13-year-old daughter Gianna “Gigi” Bryant and seven others – was too much for Vanessa.
