Questlove defends Rich Homie Quan's Biggie verse flub: "I blame us"

  /  07.14.2016

On Monday, VH1 aired its Hip Hop Honors special, and during Lil Kim’s performance, she invited Rich Homie Quan to the stage to take the reins on the Notorious B.I.G.’s verse on “Get Money.” But he ended up flubbing the lyrics so badly, his mistake turned into a meme and he felt the need to issue an apology.

But Questlove is playing devil’s advocate and defending Quan, arguing that it’s not Quan’s fault he forgot the lyrics, but ours — well, “hip hop heads” — for not paying it forward and passing down the music of their prime to following generations. In the Instagram post, he also made note of America’s “disposable” outlook on art and the way we mass consume entertainment.

So, go on and make a playlist for someone in your life.
