So in case you missed the VH1 Hip Hop Honors Monday night, during Lil Kim’s tribute, she invited Rich Homie Quan on stage to perform “Get Money“. Now, even if you’re not from New York, there’s not too many people I know that don’t know the words, but, somehow, Rich Homie Quan got up on stage AND DIDN’T KNOW THE WORDS.
Twitter and myself included immediately went into a frenzy over Quan’s mishap:

Quan went to Instagram to issue an apology “I greatly apologize to Biggie Smalls, but also to all of my fans and to New York…I will forever be sorry to New York, my fans, Biggie Smalls, Lil Kim, and all the Hip Hop community for my performance…”.
And it seems like Lil Kim completely understood and forgives him saying “people make mistakes and things happen sometimes that we can’t fix or undo…”.
Spoken like a true giant. I loved you before and I'm gonna love you after Rich Homie. People make mistakes and things happen sometimes that we can't fix or undo. If you guys only knew the technical difficulties that went on behind the scenes. I would like to thank my friend @richhomiequan for coming through for me at the last minute. It's all love ❤️ #Repost @richhomiequan with ・・・ I assure you that I never intended to disrespect Biggie Smalls. I have long respected his work and his contribution to the rap game.I greatly apologize not only to Biggie Smalls, but also to all of my fans and to New York. The city of New York has been nothing but good to me. I felt honored to stand on stage with artists I grew up listening to.Once on stage I had some technical difficulties and must admit I got nervous.I will forever be sorry to New York, my fans, Biggie Small, Lil Kim, and all the Hip Hop community for my performance. I hope you can accept my apology. To Lil Kim, Thank you for the opportunity. Rich Homie Baby
Well…if Lil Kim can forgive him, hopefully the rest of the world can too. What are your thoughts? Comment below.
