French Montana recently sat down with Bootleg Kev and DJ Hed on L.A.’s Real 92.3, where he shared his thoughts on Tekashi 6ix9ine calling himself the king of New York.

French explained, “I’m saying you can never say you’re the King of New York while JAY-Z’s still alive. Let’s get to Nas. Look at Nas. But I feel like where he’s at, he reminds me of me and Max B. That Coke Wave days. Max got 75 years in jail. You know anybody in life that got 75 years in jail?”

He later added, “And I love 6ix9ine, shout-out to his family – Fat Joe was telling him. He was giving me the same messages. Fat Joe was the one who walked me into Funkmaster Flex. … I had to learn.”
