The track arrived on streaming services on Friday (June 2) and is slated to appear on the soundtrack to French’s forthcoming documentary For Khadija which premieres later this month.
“I Can’t Lie” finds French and Kodak trading verses over featuring hypnotic production from London On Da Track, with the former rapping about copping his aunt a new crib and keeping his late collaborator Chinx’s legacy alive.
“Copped my auntie a crib, I copped a new Bugatti/ Man, these hoes ain’t safe, I’m on my Irv Gotti,” he spits. “I can’t lie, turned my mother crib into a colosseum/ Still do it for Chinx, ’til the day that I’ma see him.”

Kodak Black and French Montana have proven to be a winning combination in recent years, teaming up on songs like “Lockjaw,” “Lifestyle” alongside Kevin Gates and “Mopstick,” as well as DJ Khaled’s “Pick These Hoes Apart.”
“Lockjaw” was certified double platinum in 2019, while the duo’s “Mopstick” video was co-signed by Drake following its release last year.
“I Can’t Lie” could be part of a much larger stash of collabs as French and Yak teased a joint project together last summer.
“Me and French Montana gon’ fuck around and drop an album soon,” Kodak said in a video shared on social media. “My album — Spotify, make sure you playlist that shit. I mean, fuck everybody. Playlist my shit. My shit be top rope. Me and French Montana shit top rope, too.”
French Montana confirmed the news by reposting the video on Twitter and Instagram along with the caption: “KODAC X MONTANA ALBUM SHEEEESH [exploding head emoji] coming soon.”
