French Montana Reveals Jay Z Advice

(Radio.com) French Montana appeared the Rap Radar podcast to discuss signing with Diddy, his movie Respect the Shooter, and the advice from Jay Z he had to take to heart.

On "Episode 6" of the Rap Radar podcast, French pays a visit to hosts Elliott Wilson and Brian "B.Dot" Miller, who asked him about signing with Diddy after he went label shopping, taking meetings with Kanye west and others.

"When I sat with Puff and had a man-to-man conversation, he said. And being around him and seeing where I want to be a couple of years down the line, he definitely had the same kind of vibe I had growing as an entrepreneur. Not just rapping."

He also said he received some sage advice from Jay Z while hanging out with Diddy. "I bumped into him at Puff"s house after I dropped Excuse My French," he explained. "He [Jay Z] said 'You should have came out with 'Ain't Worried About Nothin" instead of 'Freaks.' I made that same mistake when I came out with 'Sunshine.'"
