A clip of a new collab between Meek Mill and Lil Baby was posted on a fan page for the latter this week, HotNewHipHop reports, and it ironically lost the Philadelphia rapper a whole lot of fans. Most of the time, if a snippet of a new track gets leaked it’s because they want people to get hyped about it. This one might tank the whole enterprise.
Both Meek and Baby reference the late Kobe Bryant in their lyrics, but they have very different perspectives. Here's what Meek Mill said:
"And if I ever lack I’m going out with my choppa it be another Kobe / Sh-t I can tell they ain't never know me."
Just afterwards, Lil Baby says, "I damn near wanna have a son so I can name him Kobe."
Fans are wondering what exactly went down during this recording session that Meek was able to sneak in a weird reference to Kobe's tragic death in an almost joking manner. Why did no one stop him? Or at least cut it out once he left the studio?
Meek took to Twitter to defend himself after fans voiced their anger and disappointment, implying that "somebody" is out to get him.
That didn't stop them from jumping on Twitter to drag him, though:
