Regarding “the best advice” he’s learned from Birdman, Rich Homie Quan said that it has been his marketing skills. “The man marketing skills are so, I can’t put a word on it,” he said, “When I tell you man, when he say he the number one stunna, he the number one stunna man, to me.”
In recent news, Rich Homie Quan had suffered seizures and a head injury while filming for a music video due to heat exhaustion. Now that time has passed, he wants to clear the air on all the rumors.
“First of all I want to set the record straight,” he says. :I did not have a seizure. You can ask my security guard, you can ask my team. I fell out from lack of rest. Sometimes you gotta learn how to say no.”
Rich Homie Quan explains that he had been on the road for eighteen months at the time, causing him to be overly exhausted.
“I just fell out and hit my face,” he says. “I did not hit my head, I hit my eye, you feel me. Other than that man, my health condition is great, been getting more rest.”
