French Montana Says He Was Not Targeted In Shooting

French Montana says he was not the one shooters were targeting in recent homicide.

Earlier this month, it was reported that French Montana was the target of a shooting in Philadelphia. Now, French Montana is saying that he was not the target of the shooting but that it took place near his tour bus. He also added the media has made it more serious than it was. 

"It was a serious situation," Montana recently told Angie Martinez of Hot 97. "We had a peaceful show. We was on the bus. I was listening to [Meek Mill's] mixtape. He was listening to my album. Then, we go to the front of the bus. People are just running in." 

He continued by adding that the shooting began. But he was adamant that it did not involve him.

"My bus don't have no bullet holes on it. No nothing. You know how it be. If you're with a friend that's with a friend that's with a friend that's with his mother that's with his cousin's grandmother, if something happens, it's French Montana," he explained. "If they didn't shoot at the bus, there was nothing to be worried about. I guess it wasn't for me." 

When asked about the reports, he said the media made things worse.

"The media! They can't wait to say something negative, man. They're relating Ross and me and all this," he noted. "It wasn't nothing like that. It ain't even that serious." 

Montana was referring to another shooting that took place where one of his associates, Rick Ross was targeted.

    "DMX. Realest dude EVER in the game" Doing crack and flushing your career doesn't make you the realest. It puts you in the same room with Tom Sizemore.

    In the early 90s, as rap was exploding (like, poor choice of word here, I know) I think we could fairly blame the media for negative stereotyping etc. But I think we need to stop with that nonsense now. If the KKK started a newspaper, they still could not come up with enough fake negatives that could over power the nonsense that we create and bring on ourselves. There was a shooting at a French Montana show, by a black dude I am sure, Officer Ricky, was allegedly shot, two rappers, two shootings within weeks, actually haven't there been like ten related rap shootings so far this year, I understand the Montana shooting could have had nothing to do with him, but still. The media did not create the story.
