Joey went to Twitter Tuesday (July 12) and singled Quan out.
Quan came out during B.I.G. protégé Lil’ Kim‘s “Get Money” VH1 Hip Hop Honors set and managed to get a few lyrics in before going radio silent.
Quan knew about four words before he just — stopped. And though Kim tried to step in and save him from his massive screw up, the damage was already done. RHQ looked foolish, dancing around stage in Timberlands and a Coogi sweater while VH1 cut to dismayed crowd reaction shots. I don’t know how this decision was made, or how many people turned down the opportunity before Rich Homie’s phone rang, but somebody is probably getting fired tomorrow. (Uproxx)
The incident sparked a few major reactions across social media.
Rich Homie Quan leave the city yet?
