French Montana was speaking with Complex via video call where he addressed his beef with 50 Cent, his sobriety, and more. During the sit-down talk, he also alluded to the fact that he thinks he would attract a larger crowd than Kendrick Lamar if the two artists were performing at the same time during a music festival.
“I mean, honestly, you could put somebody like Kendrick Lamar next to me on the same stage at a festival. I might outshine him… not because I’m a better rapper or whatever it is. It’s just that I got more hits,” said French Montana. “Kendrick Lamar got albums. He got masterpieces. But if you were to put us on the festival stage I would outshine him because I have more hits than Kendrick Lamar.” the ‘Famous’ rapper said.
Twitter users went gangsta on French Montana and he attempted to provide more context to his initial response.
“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.”
“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.”
