That's why Fabolous is still one of the most respected rappers in the game.
Chatting about his advice from the singer, who is thriving after releasing her new Ivy Park line, he added: 'She told me, "These are people, saying something like that could personally hurt her"'.
"I never do the bronze 'cause if you could have Beyoncé, would you take Solange?" he raps on the Nicki Minaj-assisted "For the Money" off 2010's The Funeral Service: There Is No Competition 2. "I'm like 'Hey, what's up?' and she was like 'What up?'" the rapper said in the interview. "Luckily she didn't run down on me in an elevator".
"The first person I saw was Bey, and Beyoncé was like, 'Yo, let me holler at you, '" he said. "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".
"So I see her, I was like, let me beeline to Solange and apologize", he explained.
During his interview with The Breakfast Club, Fabolous recalled a time that Beyoncé approached him about a mixtape lyric comparing the Knowles sisters before ultimately dismissing Solange for Bey. With Beyonce, I ain't gonna share the exact conversation but she told me, 'these are people. I ended up seeing her, years ago. "And she was stiff ... she said, 'What's up?' I say, 'I didn't mean any malice, and I do take responsibility for saying that and I apologize'".
'She said, "The tongue is mighty and when you say something, especially somebody of your stature... make sure it's what you want to say because you could be hurting someone you don't even know"'. "She was like, cool".
