Uh oh... - When it happened on Monday night (July 11), we all knew what the repercussions would be. Rich Homie Quan was on stage with Lil’ Kim during VH1’s 2016 Hip-Hop Honors and he totally messed up Biggie’s verse on “Get Money.” The epic flub caused the rapper to get dragged on Twitter, on the ‘Gram, and the blogs. No mercy was given, reminiscent of the time Lupe Fiasco committed a similar crime during that same ceremony years prior. RHQ has since gone on to apologize, but there are several rap lyrics throughout hip-hop history that one must simply never mess up. We have a starter kit for him. This is by no means comprehensive or else we’d be here all day (and night). – Kathy Iandoli and Jon Reyes(Photo: Rachel Murray/Getty Images for PANDORA Media)
