Rich Homie Quan has emerged out of the shadows, stepped up like a man and apologized. After setting the Hip-Hop world on fire (for the wrong reasons) due to his flubbing a Notorious B.I.G. verse during VH1’s Hip-Hop Honors last night (July 11), the Atlanta rapper took to Instagram to apologize.

“I assure you that I never intended to disrespect Biggie Smalls,” reads part of RHQ’s message posted today (July 12). “I have long respected his work and his contribution to the rap game.”

That doesn’t really jibe with the possibility that he’s too young to be really familiar with Frank White’s work, though. Also, Questlove puts the blame on “us.”

Nevertheless, Quan apologized to all those involved as well as the fans, and NYC. Also, he blamed the lyrical brain fart on nerves and “technical difficulties.”

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.”

Peep the full message below. Is it still all good?
