Now Meek has responded, claiming he’s already spoken to Vanessa about the controversial lyrics, and has asked us to change the subject so a grieving Vanessa can move on.
I apologized to her in private earlier today not to the public…Nothing I say on my page directed to a internet viral moment or the family of a grieving woman! If you care about someone grieving change the subject!

Meek Mill definitely regrets adding that lyric.
I’m pretty sure everyone is in agreement it was way too soon.
Kobe deserves to be honored in rap songs, but just don’t mention the helicopter, that’s not cool.
