Accountability is key
People are liable to make mistakes. It’s simply a part of life. No matter how old we are, we’ll always be prone to making errant mistakes. It’s all about how you rebound from your mishap, and if you indeed learned from the matter at-hand. After fumbling The Notorious B.I.G.’s lyrics during the VH1 Hip Hop Honors, many rap aficionados quickly crucified Rich Homie Quan. Rather than make a huge spectacle of the entire debacle, Q took accountability for his actions.
Rich Homie’s Apology
Instead of scurrying away from the problem at-hand, RHQ valiantly took accountability for botching The Notorious B.I.G.’s lyrics to the widely-known classic, “Get Money.” Quan went on his Instagram late Tuesday afternoon (July 12) to voice his deepest apologies to Lil Kim, fans of Biggie, and the state of New York.
RHQ pours his heart out
“I will forever be sorry to New York, my fans, Biggie Smalls, Lil Kim, and all the Hip Hop community for my performance. I hope you can accept my apology,” said RHQ in an Instagram post.
He also added that his intention was to never disrespect the legendary B.I.G. “I assure you that I never intended to disrespect Biggie Smalls. I have long respected his work and his contribution to the rap game.”
Hot 97’s Ebro Darden commended RHQ on his apology
Hot 97’s very own, Ebro Darden, applauded Rich Homie Quan for owning up to his mistakes and acknowledging his wrong in the matter. “Accountability! Responsibility..A great quality… Well done sir! @richhomiequan #biggielyricsmatter,” wrote Darden.
