Rich Gang‘s Rich Homie Quan is really trying to save face and has come up with a new explanation for messing up Notorious B.I.G.‘s “Get Money” lyrics at the VH1 Hip Hop Honors ceremony.

In a new interview, Quan said a teleprompter issue ultimately caused him to blank out during his performance.

“Yeah, we rehearsed,” Quan revealed in an interview. “I knew it by heart. But then my words–I told them I didn’t know all the words. So, the words were supposed to be on the teleprompter and they weren’t there.” (V-103)

A few days ago, Brooklyn rapper Maino shared his reaction to Quan’s now-infamous flub.
