Its not too often you see a rapper comes out with an apology for dissing someone.
Drake did just that after Kobe Bryant’s wife, Vanessa Bryant, finally responds to a few lines Drake drop in Rick Ross’ single Stay Schemin last year around the time divorce drama in the Bryant’s household.
“Kobe ’bout to lose a hundred fifty Mil / Kobe my n*gga I hate it had to be him / B–ch you wasn’t with me shooting in the gym / Bi–h you wasn’t with me shooting in the gym,” Drake raps.
Writing via her Instagram page, Vanessa Bryant said:
I love when immature kids quote a rapper that has never been friends with Kobe and knows nothing about our relationship. Just shows how gullible they are. I don’t need to be in the gym. I’m raising our daughters, signing checks and taking care of everything else that pertains to our home life.
I really wish people would stop THINK and then realize that they are being sucked into someone’s clear intention to monetize and gain attention off of our family’s heartache. This is real life. I hold down our home life so my husband can focus on his career. It’s a partnership.
Since my husband isn’t friends with Drake, we received a text of an apology forwarded from his manager. It’s done and over with and it’s now time for people to THINK before speaking.
After the line caused some controversy for Drake he issued an apology stating:
“That line came from a conversation about being this young and making this much money and the fear of losing it all. I just used his potential situation to address my own life. I never intended to offend Vanessa or anyone else.”
Drake management team also reportedly contacted the couple and apologise.
