Rich Homie Quan's "Hip Hop Honors" flub turns into #RichHomieKaraoke meme
UPDATE: After failing to do The Notorious B.I.G. justice by forgetting the legend’s lyrics to “Get Money” last night at VH1’s Hip Hop Honors (read more on that below), Rich Homie Quan has issued an apology via Instagram.
He wrote: “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.”
It’s the topic that just about everyone (and every social media platform) is touching on. Last night (July 11) at the Hip Hop Honors, the folks over at VH1 decided to let Rich Homie Quan step in to perform The Notorious B.I.G.’s verse on Junior Mafia’s “Get Money” alongside Lil Kim. Good idea? Well, the answer to that was left for many to witness as Quan stepped up and dropped the ball after about four words.
Falling flat, which is an understatement, the moment naturally got summarized by the hashtag “#RichHomieKaraoke,” and has since generated tons of memes and jokes, as well as a reaction from Junior Mafia’s own Lil Cease.
