French Montana really is a man of the people, isn’t he? First being signed to Akon, and now being jointly signed to Bad Boy and MMG. He also works with YMCMB and Brick Squad. The only crew he hasn’t infiltrated is G.O.O.D. Music – oh wait, he has tons of songs with 2 Chainz dating back to when he was Tity Boy. No wonder he dislikes beef – his hustle is being able to float from crew-to-crew to stay hot at all times. I like his “lick” – that means “a hustle” if you didn’t know.
In a recent interview with Complex, French details why he dislikes beef and why you stay away from it at all costs:
“You should avoid beef if you trying to make money. People get scared when you try to beef with people. In general, [even in street shit] nobody want to stand next to you if somebody about to shoot you, unless you have a a big lick. They [used to] do that with 50 because 50 was the bank. They knew he was going to win. People ain’t doing that [anymore] … [The rap game's not built like that anymore]. No, it’s over for that. It’s gone, big time. They’ll get you out so fast.”
