French Montana has been in the news a lot lately, the rapper was called out by Young Thug for comparing himself to Kendrick Lamar.
“IF WE JUST TALKING ABOUT ANTHEMS, !! ME VS KENDRICK HIT FOR HIT ! I BELIEVE I CAN GO NECK TO NECK !! I BEEN, MAKING HITS FOR A LONG TIME ! IT AINT MY FAULT I BELIEVE IN MYSELF. HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO ANSWER, THAT QUESTION ? HOW MANY TIMES I GOTTA PROVE MYSELF BEFORE I GET MINE.” He first twitted.
French later claimed he wasn’t throwing shots directly at Kendrick but rather, “to anybody they put in front of me.”
“I love kendrick! that’s not just for kendrick that’s to anybody they put in front of me, and ask me that same question 💨 what u want me to say lol ? It should be your attitude too.
If u think any less of yourself don’t blame it on the next person who don’t ! 😤 set it up.”
French also recently attracted the attention of Rae Sremmurd’s rapper Swae Lee when he said he was responsible for shaping their chart topping collaboration “Unforgettable,” which he claimed had no structure before it got to him. Swae Lee responded by calling the rappers claim “cap.”
Now French Montana has called out Swae Lee for not getting credit on Rae Sremmurd’s 2018 song ‘Powerglide‘ which he says helped produced. The track was credited to Hovart and Mike Will Made-It.
“They come in, Swae Lee did a verse on it,” French Montana told Billboard, adding that he helped put it together with DJ Paul at Marley Marl’s studio. “After I produced it, ask me if I had made one percent off that? I’m the one that came with the whole idea. I’m the one that came up with everything. Gave it to DJ Paul and Juicy J. They produced it. … Do you think I came after them to get anything, but now that he said that, I’m coming to get my piece. I need my piece of ‘Powerglide.’ I made it.”

The last couple of weeks, people have been coming at #FrenchMontana for his remarks about wanting to going hit for hit with #KendrickLamar. In our new interview, I brought up #TheLastDance documentary and the hyper-competitive nature ball players had in the ‘90s and how that’s sorely lacking in hip-hop right now. I commended French for staying true to his catalog and having faith in his hits and wanting to compete with the best: The conversation then spilled over to his @everydaystruggleshow interview where he mentioned how he structured #Unforgettable. If you remember, #SwaeLee called it 🧢 and said he has the “OG Version” to prove it. Here, French speaks on how he was never credited for producing and coming up with the idea for #RaeSremmurd “Powerglide” and how Swae attempted to make Guatemala “Unforgettable Part 2.” Like I told French, him and Swae together make 🔥🔥🔥 music. “Out of Your Mind” with #ChrisBrown is a banger and should have been a bigger hit to me but according to French, the energy wasn’t there when they did the track. Full interview in the bio. ✍🏽🙏🏽 #hiphop #rap #billboard #everydaystruggle
