French Montana says he came up with the entire idea for Rae Sremmurd's "Powerglide" but never got any credit for it.
French Montana has been on a wild press run, calling up numerous media outlets and talking his shit. The New York rapper initially did some damage when he claimed to have more hits than Kendrick Lamar. Sometime between then and now, he insinuated that he structured his hit record "Unforgettable" with Swae Lee. That comment angered the Rae Sremmurd artist, who ended up calling "cap" on him. Now, their relationship appears to be strained and in another new video, French Montana threw some major shade at Swae.
Speaking with Billboard, French Montana claimed that he produced Rae Sremmurd's song "Powerglide" but that he never got credit for it. Now that a feud has kicked off with Swae Lee, he noted that he will come after his royalties now.

That wasn't all though. Speaking about their near-diamond record "Unforgettable," French Montana called out Swae Lee for releasing a would-be second version and not including him.
"If I didn't structure the song, what happened when they put out 'Unforgettable' part 2, 'Guatemala'? How come that didn't sell nine million?" asked French. "That's how they try and do me. I do 'Unforgettable', they take me out and he replaces me with somebody else to come out with a part 2. I never took it no way."
It sounds like French and Swae need to hop on a call to hash things out because this is getting messy quickly.

The last couple of weeks, people have been coming at #FrenchMontana for his remarks about wanting to going hit for hit with #KendrickLamar. In our new interview, I brought up #TheLastDance documentary and the hyper-competitive nature ball players had in the ‘90s and how that’s sorely lacking in hip-hop right now. I commended French for staying true to his catalog and having faith in his hits and wanting to compete with the best: The conversation then spilled over to his @everydaystruggleshow interview where he mentioned how he structured #Unforgettable. If you remember, #SwaeLee called it 🧢 and said he has the “OG Version” to prove it. Here, French speaks on how he was never credited for producing and coming up with the idea for #RaeSremmurd “Powerglide” and how Swae attempted to make Guatemala “Unforgettable Part 2.” Like I told French, him and Swae together make 🔥🔥🔥 music. “Out of Your Mind” with #ChrisBrown is a banger and should have been a bigger hit to me but according to French, the energy wasn’t there when they did the track. Full interview in the bio. ✍🏽🙏🏽 #hiphop #rap #billboard #everydaystruggle
