French Montana released his new album, Montega, on Friday
The new album, “Montega”, by French Montana it’s just one of the many news that hit streamers this weekend. In celebration of the arrival of his project, the rapper flew to New York for an interview at The Breakfast Club, where he revealed a lot from his role in the end of the beef to Drake and Diddy to his recent comments on “the Kardashian curse”.
On the project’s first track, “Blue Chills,” the 37-year-old rapper sings “Drake and Diddy are fine after that little beef,” prompting some of the presenters to ask him to talk more about it. “I thought there was something going on, I really didn’t know the exact details of their rivalry,” Montana began.
“But, I know I had a birthday party that Iggy Azalea arranged for me on a boat, and when I arrived, Drake was there waiting for me”, adding that soon after, Diddy appeared in a “small boat”. “That was the first time they met after they had already made up.”
The fight in question started at the birthday party of DJ Khaled in 2014, when Drizzy accused Diddy to “steal” the beat of his hit track “0-100”. Complex noted that this was resolved during a phone call in 2015.
However, according to reports, Drake released “4PM In Calabasas” which was a diss against the 52-year-old and Joe Budden. As of 2016, things seemed to have been fixed as Diddy accepted a VMA on behalf of 6ix God. French Montana revealed that at the aforementioned party, he told Combs that the beef “needed to die” and whatever bad was going on between them, seeing as they are both dear friends to Montana.
“I’m glad they didn’t even know the other was coming to the party. When they arrived, they spent the whole night talking to each other… I didn’t tell Drake what Diddy would be there, and I didn’t tell Puff that Drizzy would be there… They were good friends before that, so when they met, they talked all night. And I was like, ‘You see? You were best friends to begin with before the beef started.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Montana talked about the verses referring to the “Kardashian curse”, revealing that he doesn’t believe it’s real and that it was together with Kanye West that the rapper ended this curse. “That’s why I’m still doing my thing. I think that’s what I’m doing in music.”
“I just feel like when you hang out with them or have a relationship with family, I think the media starts scrutinizing your whole life on top of the relationship and forgets about your individual experiences, you know, your life of talent.”
