French Montana recently announced that he signed with Diddy’s Bad Boy Records after hinting that he was signing with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music. Though he’s remained mum about why he didn’t contract with Yeezy, French spoke with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez and finally revealed the reason why he snubbed ‘Ye.
“I met up with him one time and then I met up with him again. There were things that I was used to ’cause I was already moving. I’m like a money train,” he said. “Kanye doesn’t have a phone. If you need to get in contact with Kanye, you have to email him. You can’t tell me how to do that. I don’t know how to use an email, so I guess me and you is never gonna talk. And I’ma put my career in your hands? He’s definitely talented and I felt like if I went there, we would have definitely made history.“
Instead, French signed with Bad Boy Records, with plans to drop his LP in the forthcoming months. For French, the choice was clear based on what Diddy could offer. “When I met up with Puff, everything he promised me came through. And Rozay was definitely there for me too,” he said.
