Maino Goes Looking for the “Alamo” Rich Homie Quan Rapped About in Brooklyn
Bed-Stuy's own Maino, the self proclaimed King of Brooklyn, posted a bunch of reactionary videos yesterday (July 12) to Rich Homie's butchering of the Junior M.A.F.I.A cut "Get Money" at Monday's live taping of the VH1 Hip Hop Honors.
Just to recap, RHQ bombed his performance by forgetting the lyrics to Notorious B.I.G.'s verse. Instead of "Play Nintendo with Cease and Nino," the ATL rhymer raps something to the effect of "Play Nintendo With Cease at Alamo." It was that line in particular that Maino found so funny, he decided to hop in his car and look for the Alamo in Brooklyn. Check out his journey in the videos below.
Aside from Maino, The Game, Problem and Joey Bada$$ have also called out Rich Homie for messing up the lyrics even with his seemingly sincere apology posted on social media. But on the Bad Boy side, the artists have been more understanding. Faith Evans came to his defense, saying "everybody makes mistakes" and honoree Lil Kim reposted Rich Homie's apology with her acceptance.
"Spoken like a true giant. 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," wrote Kimmy Blanco.
