It started when French Montana said that he believed he was on the same level as Kendrick Lamar in terms of hits. "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,' he wrote on Twitter Tuesday night (April 21). "HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION ? HOW MANY TIMES I GOTTA PROVE MYSELF BEFORE I GET MINE."
After receiving a wave of criticism for his comments, Montana stepped back and said he has nothing but love for Lamar, but he also wants people to acknowledge his catalog. "I love kendrick! that's not just for kendrick that's to anybody they put in front of me, and ask me that same question what u want me to say lol," he questioned fans. "It should be your attitude too. If u think any less of yourself don't blame it on the next person who don't! set it up."
