The VIPP Report: Rich Homie Quan apology to hip hop legend Lil Kim


If you watched VH1’s Hip Hop Honors you noticed something awkward when it came to hip hop legend and honoree Lil Kim.  I could not figure out what happened sitting at home but now Rich Homie Quan explains and sends his apologizes.  It appears that his nerves got to him.  Here’s his statement:

“I assure you that I never intended to disrespect the Memory of Biggie Smalls. I have long respected his work and his contribution to the rap game. I greatly apologize not only to Biggie Smalls, but also to all of my fans, Biggie Smalls fans and to New York. The city of New York has been nothing but good to me. I felt honored to stand on stage with artists I grew up listening to. Once on stage I had some technical difficulties and must admit I got nervous. I will forever be sorry New York, my fans, Biggie Smalls, Biggie Smalls Fans,  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.”

Last night, Queen Latifah, Lil Kim, Salt n Pepa and Missy Elliott were honored for their accomplishments in the entertainment industry.

Event Poster_Final (3)

Renowned artists like Marion Meadows, Tim Cunningham and the Urban Jazz Coalition will all perform in Louisville on July 1st and 2nd at Fourth Street Live, 411 South 4th Street.

The inaugural two-day festival will be added to the event calendar for years to come as they celebrate jazz and it’s rich history in Louisville by bringing in unforgettable performances and distinctive experiences.

Jazz was originated in New Orleans during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.  The unique blend of African and slave folk songs received its influence from classical music.  It was their way of interpretation of American and European culture.  Jazz’s main influence came from hymns in the church. The harmonic style is known today by many as spirituals.

Max Maxwell, CEO of the Derby City Jazz Festival says “Louisville is a place filled with soul, culture and creativity, and we have a great legacy. Our Festival – what will be the areas signature smooth jazz festival – truly showcases what makes our city special.”  Maxwell goes on to say it’s exciting to see this idea flourish into a festival that everyone will be proud or for years to come.

Fourth Street Live is encouraging jazz lovers to come out and witness another great event that will give the Derby City a thumbs up as a destination for Smooth Jazz.

To be a part of the “Street Take Over” tickets range from $55 to $100.  You must be 21 and over to attend the festival.  There will be local and regional acts throughout the day along with food and retail vendors.  Concerts begin on both days at 6:00 p.m..   For additional information go to
