The Brooklyn native stopped by The Breakfast Club and DJ Envy asked if anyone ever took offense to one of his punchlines and “pressed” him, and you’d never guess who did. More details inside…
In a new interview with radio show The Breakfast Club, rapper Fabolous revealed that an old freestyle song lyric of his was criticized by Queen Bey herself.
The line is found on the 2010 track “For the Money,” which features Nicki Minaj. In one of his verses, the rapper says, “If you could have Beyoncé, would you take Solange?”
Naturally, that line didn’t sit well with the Knowles sisters, who have proven they will defend each other whenever necessary (never forget the elevator). As Fabolous revealed, Bey spoke with him about the lyric.
“The first person I saw was B,” he continues. “She was like ‘let me holla at you.’ I went over there and she was telling me they rock with me — I didn’t think when I was saying it, I didn’t connect like that. With Beyonce, I ain’t gonna share the exact conversation but she told me, these are people. Saying something like that could personally hurt her. I said ‘I did it, and when I see Solange that I’ll apologize to her. I ended up seeing her, years ago. I beelined to Solange to apologize. She was stiff. I was like ‘ey what’s up.’” He proceeds to mimick her nonchalant response. “I was like, I didn’t mean any malice but I apologize for it,” he continues. “She was like, cool.”
“It really woke me up,” Fabolous confesses. “Up until that point, I would say anything in a rap if it was catchy.”
Out of respect for the two sisters, Fabolous kept most of the details of their reactions to himself. But that just goes to show that the sibling love runs deep with these two. Think twice before you shade Bey’s baby sister, everyone.
