Rapper French Montana says he’s not beefing with Kendrick Lamar. He says that his comments about Kendrick Lamar’s mainstream appeal got taken out of context. He made his comments during a recent visit of the ‘Breakfast Club’ interview on NY’s Power 105. Where French Montana was asked why he thinks street rap doesn’t sell like Kendrick Lamar? French brought up Kendrick’s Grammy performance saying it was “like Kendrick night” but all of hip-hop doesn’t sound like him.
French caught some flak for that, but insists that people took his words wrong. What he meant was “each style of rap, whether it be street rap, conscious rap, trap, or anything else should be looked at equally as being hip-hop.”
He added, “All of these artists should be acknowledged, rather than singling out an individual, whether it be Kendrick or anyone else.”
