During the 2016 VH1 Hip Hop Honors while one of the four honorees, Lil Kim performed the legendary “Get Money” ft. the late Biggie Smalls, Rich Homie Quan did the unthinkable — he forgot the words. If you missed the performance, check it out.
Rich Homie Quan apologized to Lil Kim, and New York fans. Keep in mind he wasn’t h1’s first choice and did the tribute perforce at the very last minute. He never intended to forget the lyrics and he wasn’t trying to disrespect Biggie.
The Queen Bee sat with MTV’s Sway and said that at the time when he was asked to come to the show, he was under the impression that he would just be there to support Kim. When they rehearsed the song they sounded great but when it came time to perform it all shattered.
Rich Homie Quan blames his slip up on a teleprompter.
True hip hop fans KNOW Biggie lyrics. #JustSaying
