French Montana Weighs In On Lil Wayne's New York Comments

French Montana gives his take on Lil Wayne's less-than-complementary commentary on the Big Apple.

Last month, Lil Wayne drew heavy criticism from New York Hip Hop heads after the Louisiana rapper told MTV that he "flat out [doesn't] like New York." Now, Weezy's "Pop That" partner and Bronx native French Montana speaks on Wayne's recent comments.

French told MTV's News that he understands Wayne's disdain of the Big Apple given his tumultuous legal history with the state and the debacle that occurred at Hot 97's Summer Jam 2012. Still, French says that he doesn't believe Wayne meant that he hates every aspect of NYC and its people; rather, he's just speaking from an understandably frustrated viewpoint.

“I mean if I was to go to New Orleans and catch a gun charge, I think there might be a point in time when I get sick and tired, and be like, 'Man I hate New Orleans,'” he explained. “It might not mean I hate the people, it’s that’s what I hate. Sometimes you might be like, 'I hate Jamaican food,' I’m not saying I hate Jamaicans. I think it go like that and I think that’s why nobody really got at him yet for saying that."

      You can hate America for what it stands for, that does not mean you cannot sympathize with the people actually living there. I myself am not particularly fond of America's (past and present) position in the world, nor am I pleased with how most black people are being treated in America. Does that mean I automatically don't like Americans?

    Real people understand that Lil Wayne meant he didn't like law enforcement in New York. He couldn't say it directly, because it would violate the terms of his probation.

    some people are going to look for a reason to be mad are wayne regardless of the situation. They know good and damn well wayne didnt mean anything like not liking the people but theyd rather have another reason to like him.

    So tell me if i got this right" Lil wayne says he doesnt like new york. that he doesnt like a particular state. And there is a huge backlash and people call him stupid for it. But when Havoc was all on the radio dissing the south, not just one state he was dissing an entire region, and there was no backlash. Saigon as well as Sean Price (all new york artists) have openly dissed the south have dissed the south (once again not just a state, an ENTIRE REGION) and theres no backlash. ok
