Earlier this year, rapper French Montana revealed that he was working on a very special project with Kanye West. While speaking with Complex, French revealed details about working with Yeezus.
“Well, I just worked with Kanye,” French said. “Me and Kanye was working yesterday. We did like four songs…He produced and rapping. So, we still going back and forth. We even considering him producing my album. Well, Kanye actually was gonna sign me before I signed with Interscope. So, he was trying to sign me. I mean, since around that time we just built a great chemistry, a great relationship. And now he’s working on his album. I’m working on my album. It’s kinda like let’s get together and make it happen…That’s Kanye, man. One of the best to do it. You know what I’m saying? We just sit there and we talk about everything that’s going on with Hip Hop. This and that. And just come up with the best songs we can come up with.”
French went on to discuss a time when Kanye was actually thinking about signing the Moroccan born rapper.
“Kanye doesn’t have a phone. If you need to get in contact with Kanye, you have to email him,” French said during an interview with Hot 97’s Angie Martinez in 2012. “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.”
