New Music: Quincy f/ French Montana – ‘Friends First’

Friends First

Diddy’s stepson Quincy stopped by the L.A. Leakers’ #LIFTOFF show to drop off his new single “Friends First” featuring French Montana. On the Christian Davis-produced track, the 23-year-old son of Kim Porter and Al B. Sure! sings about getting to know a girl before they take it further.

“It’s a song about practicing being friends first,” he told Rap-Up TV. “It’s not all about jumping into the sexual things or immediate relationships. It’s about taking your time with it.”

Diddy gave the song his stamp of approval. “I was gon’ release it in January or February, and then I played it for him and he was like, ‘Whoa. You got one. Let me just put my little touches on it,’” added Quincy.

He plans to release more singles next year leading up to a potential March album release.

Can’t stop, won’t stop. To celebrate his 45th birthday, Diddy went all out and threw a pajama party at his Beverly Hills mansion on Tuesday night. Some of his famous friends including Nelly, Snoop Dogg, Jermaine Dupri, and Bow Wow dressed in their loungewear to party with Puff.

French Montana and Khloe Kardashian surprised the Bad Boy mogul with a lavish whip. “I got a little surprise for my brother,” French told partygoers while directing everyone to the front of the house where a pearl white Cadillac Escalade was waiting in the driveway.

“Oh my God. What the f**k is this?” said a shocked Puff. “You know only ni**as from Harlem get pearl cars.”

He hugged French and jumped in the driver’s seat of his new ride. “Can’t buy a ni**a a motherfu**in’ Ferrari, a Bentley, a Rolls-Royce—ni**a got that. I ain’t got a pearl motherfu**in’ Cadillac,” declared Puff.

Diddy also spoiled himself with a G5 jet, while Cassie baked an apple pie for her man. “Don’t know or care to know what my life would be like without you,” she told him. “Beyond happy and grateful to have you in it.”
