As he gears up to release his sophomore album MC4, French Montana sat down with Wendy Williams on Tuesday (Jun. 7) to talk about a slew of topics—from his monkey Julius Caesar to Khloe Kardashian to the late Chinx.
Due Aug. 19, MC4 is set to include “Figure It Out,” his collaboration with Nas and Kanye West, and “Lockjaw” featuring Kodak Black.
Watch the full interview and see highlights from the Q&A below.
On Chinx’s mother’s criticism: “I love Chinx’s mom but me and her never had a relationship. I never spoke to her when he was alive. I might’ve spoke to her one time. The second time I spoke to her was at the funeral. She just asked me, ‘What’s going on with my son?’ I said, ‘I don’t know.’ I said, ‘I told him stay out the streets. Don’t be driving around at 4 in the morning, just you by yourself or you and another person.’ She said, ‘You’re not his father.’ I said, ‘OK.’ That was it.”
On Chinx: “As far as Chinx, all I did was give him the platform to feed his family. I never made a dollar off of him. All the money he made, I told him, ‘Go take care of your family.’ He was in the streets at the time, selling drugs. So, it’s like, I gave him a platform. By the time last year came, he had his own house, his own car, his family was good. I think I did my job.”
On Khloe Kardashian: “We cool. I think we’re always gonna be friends. I’m cool with that whole family. I’ve got nothing but love for them.”
On buying Selena Gomez’s Calabasas house: “She gave me that house like a million-and-a-half off. So I’m trying to find out what’s going on…Actually, I’ve only been there once. I’m gonna try to stay [there] for the end of the summer….It’s still getting done. When she left it, there was a pink room, a purple room. It was crazy.”
On Max B: “He’s doing good. He’s got a positive spirit. Sometimes I talk to him, he makes me feel like I’m locked up.”
