Drake Takes Another Shot at Kanye West on French Montana's 'No Stylist': Listen
Earlier this month (Sept. 6), footage leaked of Drake taking shots at Kanye West in an upcoming collaboration with French Montana. Just two weeks later on Thursday (Sept. 20), the London On Da Track-produced "No Stylist" finally showed up as Zane Lowe's World Record for Thursday (Sept. 20) on Beats 1 radio, where the single premiered shortly after noon ET.
Montana and Drizzy have been a lethal combination in the past, teaming up on records including Rick Ross' "Stay Schemin," "Pop That," "No Shopping," and most recently on Scorpion's "Elevate." "I actually came to Miami when he [Drake] was working on his album. I just played him my music from my album, and he heard 'No Stylist' and fell in love with it," the Bronx-bred Montana told Lowe of the track's origin.
The 33-year-old says linking up with Drake on potential smash hits always remains an organic process. "Some people make music but you could tell they’re not friends we make music and me and him kind of like the same things in life you know what I’m saying, we from the same era, so it just came together," he says.
As promised, the low-key song features yet another shot fired in Drizzy's ongoing, simmering feud with Kanye, with the 6 God dropping the line, "Keeping it G, I told don't wear no 350s around me," in a pointed reference to Ye's signature Adidas footwear line.
Be on the lookout for a dapper visual to "No Stylist" coming soon, as the video was already shot this month in the Bronx. "We went to the Bronx and we shot the video, it has Slick Rick and the old school car with the Louis Vuitton seats and the Gucci seats. We had Cam’ron," French details. "Dapper Dan, when he used to have his boutique, people used to go to him because he knew how to put certain looks together that they couldn’t even do for these big brands."
"No Stylist" is slated to appear on Montana's upcoming album which is still without a release date. "I’m going to make sure this one gets the respect it deserves," French told Billboard in August.
