Meek Mill is often in the news these days for reasons outside of music and this instance is no different. The Philadelphia rapper was taking in his hometown NBA team and accidentally tripped up a referee in the process.

Meek Mill, 35, was at the Wells Fargo Center, the home court of the Philadelphia 76ers, and sat courtside as a young boss such as himself should. During the game between the Sixers and the visiting Phoenix Suns on Monday night (Nov. 7). In the second quarter, Meek, not a short man by any measure, was stretching out his legs when the ref misjudged the rapper’s leg length and fell over.

Bleacher Report tweeted out a video of the moment, which Meek Mill retweeted with a quote featuring a past collaborator’s rhymes in the caption that serves as the official apology.

“Hov once said I be spiked out I can trip a referee lol,” Meek tweeted, which points to Jay-Z’s lyrics from the hit “Empire State Of Mind” track. “I apologized to him that’s brazyyy tho [crying face emojis].”
