Fans of ‘Out of Your Mind’ maestro French Montana were wondering what the hell was on his mind after he took to press recently to proclaim he could outshine Kendrick Lamar.
While hot on the promo trail in support of his latest single, ‘That’s a Fact’ (click here to watch its music video), Montana visited our friends at ‘Complex’ to discuss a number of topics including his competition and live performing.
“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,” he said. “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.”
Needless to say, the comment rubbed K.Dot fans the wrong way as many assumed French was asserting he was better than the ‘Humble’ star.
Once Twitter erupted with ridicule and receipts (i.e. Montana’s only had 4 top 40 hits since 2007), the Grammy-nominee took to the platform to clap back.
See what he said inside:
Since his 2011 debut, Kendrick has nabbed over 25 top 40 hits, including two #1 singles – 2017’s ‘Humble’ (as a leading act) and 2015’s ‘Bad Blood’ (as a featured act to Taylor Swift).
