Following his performance with Lil' Kim during VH1's Hip Hop Honors, during which he forgot the lyrics to Biggie's "Get Money," Rich Homie Quan quickly issued an apology via Instagram assuring fans that he meant no disrespect. And, while a few people might still be upset, Lil' Kim is defending Rich Homie.


The Queen Bee wrote on Instagram, "I loved you before and I'm gonna love you after Rich Homie. People make mistakes and things happen sometimes that we can't fix or undo. If you guys only knew the technical difficulties that went on behind the scenes. I would like to thank my friend @richhomiequan for coming through for me at the last minute. It's all love."

So, Rich Homie and Lil' Kim are cool, but can New York and Biggie's diehard fans forgive him?
