Lil Mama recalls crashing Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ 2009 MTV VMAs set.

During a recent interview on the Jay Hill podcast, Mama expresses, “yeah, in the beginning, I was hurt. Tyrese called my phone as soon as I got home. He was like, ‘Bro, you didn’t tell me you was performing!’ First of all, my heart is racing. I’m already mad embarrassed.” she recaled. “You crazy, Ty! Haha. Why would you say something like that? Performing? Aha! That’s crazy!”

She continued, “I had to deal with Ed Lover on the radio in the morning, Wendy Williams, Angie Martinez, who talked to JAY, and he was just like, ‘Yeah, you know. I didn’t like it.’ He was so angry and I was just trying my best to do everything I could do. After a while, I was like, ‘Forgive yourself, bro. Move forward.”

Jay Hill then asked Mama, “that didn’t make you, like, depressed or nothing?” in which she replied, “bro, I was hurt. I was depressed. I was like, ‘Yo, what’s going on?’ And then you got everybody telling you, ‘You’re doing bad.’ People pointing at you, like, ‘What did you do?’”

As she gets emotional, Mama says, “I be thinking about real-life stuff that people go through, bro. And I be like, ‘I’m so blessed.’”
