It was the blunder seen on live TV. At Monday’s VH1’s “Hip Hop Honors,” Rich Homie Quan was brought out by Lil Kim to perform the Junior M.A.F.I.A. classic, “Get Money.” The song, which was the introduction of the notorious K.I.M., is a New York classic. Of course everyone expected the person picked to do BIG’s to represent the late rapper and Junior Mafia well.

Well, Rich Homie Quan messed up the words, resulting in a public outcry (and hilarious hashtag) on social media. Now, he’s speaking out about Monday night apologizing for the mess up.

“I assure you that I never intended to disrespect Biggie Smalls. I have long respected his work and his contribution to the rap game.”

Also, he blamed the lyrical brain fart on nerves, put wholeheartedly felt bad for messing up the lyrics.

He added, “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.”

Lil Kim is sticking up for RHQ. After he posted his apology on Instagram, Kim reposted the apology and added:

“Spoken like a true giant. I loved you before and I’m gonna love you after Rich Homie. People make mistakes and things happen sometimes. that we can’t fix or undo. If you guys only knew the technical difficulties that went on behind the scenes. I would like to thank my friend @RichHomieQuan for coming through for me at the last minute. It’s all love.”
