The New Orleans pioneer rapper had people talking when he criticized the NBA player, as well as Kobe Bryant and those who rushed to be by his side in a Las Vegas hospital after being found unconscious at a Las Vegas brothel.
After making his comments, the 48-year-old rapper claims his words were blown out of proportion. In a now-deleted Instagram post, P said “My prayers are going out to Lamar and his family. I pray that he comes out of this, he may have a rocky past but overall he’s a good brother and the only reason I’m not running to the hospital to visit him, I’m not looking for publicity, I don’t need it. Only when I was asked, I stated my opinion on what I knew about this man from the times I was around him. Lamar complained about how everybody turned their backs on him, even his nba buddies. But then people blew my opinion out of proportion. I understand that Kobe is one of the greatest basketball players in the world and people are going to side with him. I have nothing against Kobe or the Lakers. I have nothing to hide and I’m willing to speak face to face.”
Since then, P shared another post on social media, taking back his lengthy statement about his comments and sending well wishes to Lamar. What are your thoughts on Master P’s statements?
