“Sometimes you say punchlines, and you may not even know the seriousness behind it,” Fabolous, 42, explained on The Breakfast Club.

He rapped the verse, “If you could have Beyoncé would you take Solange?” in the 2010 track “For The Money” which featured Nicki Minaj. The rapper admitted he used a lot of celebrities as punch lines but had a wake-up call after a confrontation with Beyoncé.

“The first person I saw was B,” he revealed. “Beyoncé 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. Punch line-y style is just to say something to be catchy and metaphoric, but I didn't see the deeper side of it.”

The “Into You” rapper continued, “With Beyoncé, 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 get it, and when I see Solange that I'll apologize to her.’”

“I ended up seeing her at Soho House one day. It was years ago,” Fabolous said. “I beelined to Solange to apologize. She was stiff. I was like, ‘Hey, what’s up?’” Fabolous mimicked Solange’s cold response as she quipped, “What’s up?”

Charlamagne joked that the “Into You” rapper was lucky that Solange didn’t attack him in an elevator, referencing the 2014 incident when the “Cranes In The Sky” singer fought Jay Z.

“It really woke me up,” Fabolous admitted about his encounter with the Knowles sisters. “Up until that point, I would say anything in a rap if it was catchy.”

He added, “I’m thinking I’m doing it on a little mixtape level and it’s never going to reach Beyonce and Solange’s ears. I’m not even thinking that far away.”
