Rich Homie Quan didn't take too kindly to BET producers who tried to bump him from the main stage. According to a report from TMZ, RHQ was supposed to perform during the show but when he showed up to rehearsal on Saturday he was told by the show's producers that he would be the headlining act of the pre-show and not on the main stage. The source claims that Quan and his team got into a screaming match with BET and when the channel refused to waver, Rich Homie was on the first thing smokin' back to Atlanta. XXL has reached out to Rich Homie Quan's team to confirm the report.

Quan’s lawyer, Brianna E. Williams, Esq., sent in a statement on behalf of Rich Homie Quan, stating that RHQ didn't slip his performance rather he declined BET's invitation to perform. Read below:

You are correct in your contention that Quan was initially invited to perform outside at the BET Awards. However, your story fails to mention that he declined the invitation to perform. Thus, Quan was never scheduled to perform at the BET Awards this year, nor did he even attend the Awards ceremony. Your report that "he showed up to rehearsal Saturday and was told by producers he'd be the headlining act for the red carpet pre-show" and "Quan and his people got into a shouting match with the BET honchos ... and when BET refused to budge, he bailed and went back to Atlanta" is completely and wholly inaccurate.

Rich Homie Quan has been going through a rough patch in his career and the incident at the BET Awards is just another situation to add to Quan's growing list of headaches. Shortly after the release of his If You Ever Think I Will Stop Going In mixtape, an unreleased song titled "I Made It" that featured a lyric about rape leaked and the former XXL Freshman was on the defense. After publicly apologizing numerous times, Quan found himself on the defense again when another song with a rape lyric leaked. The rapper once again apologized and went as far as saying he's "not a rapist" in an interview with Billboard.  “I do not condone or promote rape. I’m not a rapist,” he said in the Q+A. “That song was recorded in Dec. 2012. I was young and just rapping. At the time, I had no guidance in my life. I blame it on that. So I apologize once more to my fans.”
