"For the record, me and Stephen Hill never had a problem with my performance," he told BET.com. "[I know] why he got upset, he know why I got upset. It was just a lot of misunderstanding on both sides. We just cleared it up. It was nothing."

As previously reported, Waka decided to perform a different song at the last minute rather than stick to "No Hands/Hard in the Paint" as he'd rehearse a few days prior, prompting Hill to tweet, "BET Hip Hop Awards. The show was going so well...and Waka Fla-ked. Yea. I said it." When asked why he put Waka on the bill to perform in the first place, Hill replied, "like it or not, he's popular. Wanted to give a shot." An upset Waka then fired back.

In related news, Waka appeared on "106 & Park" yesterday to plug his new album, "Flockaveli," which hits stores today.
