While buzz surrounding New York rapper French Montana continues to intensify, the former Konvict Muzik artist is now hinting at possible offers from Jay-Z, Diddy and more.
Initially believed to be wanted solely by Kanye West and Rick Ross, Montana claims he is receiving mulitple record deal situations.
"Shout out ot everybody who's been showing me love -- It's everybody. I didn't really make a decision yet. But shout out to everybody that's been showing me love. Shout out to Jay-Z, shout out to Kanye, definitely shout out to Puff, shout out to my brother Rick Ross, shout out to Sony, shout out to Def Jam, shout out to Interscope, shout out to everybody. I love everybody, man. I just want to make the right decision and keep the music coming. I'm just focused on the music." (DJ Absolut)
Last week, Montana and Kanye West were spotted together in New Jersey.
It seems Kanye West hasn't given up on signing "Shot Caller" rapper French Montana to his Def Jam label "G.O.O.D." Sources at Jay-Z and West's "Watch the Throne" concert at New Jersey's Izod Center Saturday say West was "all over" Montana backstage. Since Montana left Akon's Konvict Muzik, he's been flirting with West and Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group. Montana tweeted a photo with West backstage hinting that he'd signed with him. West was later spotted at the Darby Downstairs sitting near the DJ booth where Mick Boogie was spinning. (New York Post)
A few weeks ago, G.O.O.D. Music's Pusha T imagined French joining the team.
"I mean for what G.O.O.D. Music has been known for, but I don't know if G.O.O.D. Music was known for Pusha T. You know what I'm saying? I don't think G.O.O.D. Music was necessarily known for what it is that I do and think that we about to shock the world come 2012," Pusha promised in an interview. "I'm a fan of French personally. If that happens to happen, the way that French is putting out music and he puts out visuals and is like really self-contained, it could be serious man." (WGCI)
