French Montana Wants To Battle Kendrick Lamar: I Have More Hits Than Him!
Rapper French Montana wants in on the latest social media trend: Instagram Live music battles presented by super-producers Swizz Beatz‘s and Timbaland‘s VERZUZ platform. In an interview with Complex‘s Speedy Morman on Tuesday night, (4/21/20) he declared that he’d like to take on Pulitzer Prize-winning rapper, Kendrick Lamar, hit-for-hit. French delivered this bold statement:
“I mean, honestly, I could go against anybody. You could put somebody like Kendrick Lamar next to me on the same stage at a festival, I might outshine him… not because I’m a better rapper or whatever it is. It’s just that I got more hits.”
Here's the clip in question: French Montana says he has more hits than Kendrick Lamar.

French Montana continued:
“Kendrick Lamar got albums. He got masterpieces. But if you was to put us on the festival stage, I would outshine him because I have more hits than Kendrick Lamar.”
French continued to defend his position on Twitter later that night. He tweeted:
“IF WE JUST TALKING ABOUT ANTHEMS, !! ME VS KENDRICK HIT FOR HIT ! I BELIEVE I CAN GO NECK TO NECK !! I BEEN MAKING HITS FOR A LONG TIME ! IT AINT MY FAULT I BELIEVE IN MYSELF. HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION ? HOW MANY TIMES I GOTTA PROVE MYSELF BEFORE I GET MINE…not taking nothing away from him just standing for myself is that still cool ? lol”
