French Montana States Drake Wasn’t Dissing Joe Budden On “No Shopping”


Listeners everywhere tuned into OVO Sound Radio in anticipation for French Montana’s new single No Shopping featuring Drake. Back in May when a snippet of the song surfaced, Drake started his verse with “Pump, pump, pump it up.” Obviously a reference to Budden’s 2003 single that he’s most known for. “I’m not a one-hit wonder, they know all my stuff,” he went on to rap. “You let me turn into the n*gga that you almost was.”

There are also a few other lines in Drakes No Shopping verse that seem to be directed towards Budden. Hours after its premiere Joe Budden released yet another diss track towards Drake titled Afraid. Yesterday French revealed him and Drake never had Joe in mind when recording the song.

He recently sat down with MTV for a live interview while getting a haircut. When asked about the alleged diss from Drake on the new track French stated, “I don’t have nothing to do with that one,” then clarifying that he doesn’t think Drake used No Shopping to come at Budden.”I don’t think we did that record thinking about Joe Budden,” he stated. “It’s not I don’t think. – I know that for a fact.”

Any fan would think that Joe is definitely on Drake’s mind even just the least bit but French denies that it wasn’t a diss verse and that No Shopping is in any way, shape, or form a diss track. A tweet sent out after the premiere would suggest that he is aware of the lyrics on his song but it’s highly doubtful they will entertain this beef with Joe Budden.
