Rich Homie Quan Was Not The Best Person To Rap A Biggie Verse, It Turns Out
Most wouldn't view Rich Homie Quan as a direct musical descendant of The Notorious B.I.G., but the Atlanta native was nonetheless tapped to rap Biggie's verse from "Get Money" during Lil' Kim's tribute on VH1's Hip Hop Honors. [Note: VH1 and MTV News are both owned by Viacom.] It could have been a fine, if unconventional, choice.
One problem: He forgot the words.
You have to wonder: Why accept the offer if you don't know the words? Why not learn the words once you accept the offer if you indeed didn't already know them?
Maybe it was the nerves?
On the bright side, this could happen to anyone (I guess?). Look no further than Lupe Fiasco fumbling the lyrics during an A Tribe Called Quest Hip Hop Honors tribute back in 2007. You'll bounce back from this, RHQ.
