News: Uncle Luke Tells French Montana 'Pop That' Checkbook: "I'm Going To Talk To Diddy"

Rap veteran Uncle Luke recently co-signed French Montana's "Pop That" anthem but noted he has not yet received a single penny for the 2 Live Crew-sampled track.
Although he co-signed it as a smash, Luke said he is still awaiting some compensation.
"Pop That," set to appear on French's forthcoming debut Excuse My French, samples the former 2 Live Crew rapper's single "I Wanna Rock." And according to Luke, he hasn't been compensated just yet. "When I heard the song I said, 'Oh this is a hit,' and the next thing I said is, 'Where's my check?" Luke told MTV News on the red carpet at the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards. "Ain't nobody told me about my check yet. I have not gotten the check yet, so I'm looking for the check," he said, adding that he would track down French's boss to sort it all out. "I'm gonna talk to Diddy in the back about it." (MTV)
Back in July, Montana put out a music video to complement the summer hit.
When Drake, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and French Montana throw a pool party for a music video, two things are definitely going to be involved. There's bound to be a bevy of scantily clad women (the song is called "Pop That," after all) and more than enough product placement. Each of them has their products to push: Rozay rides hard for Ciroc, Lil Wayne drops a horribly unsubtle reference to his clothing line, TRUKFIT, and someone is seen smoking a hookah that's made from a bottle of Moet.

The star-studded collaboration features hip-hop heavyweights Rick Ross, Drake and Lil Wayne.
As you may have guessed from the title, this cut finds Montana and his homies taking inspiration from Dr. Luke's classic I Wanna Rock as they voice their admiration for the female anatomy. Backed by beatsmith Anthony Lee's whip-ready 808 boardwork, the headliner delivers a freaky, flossed-out opener before passing the mic to Ricky Rozay for a luxuriant guest 16. YMCMB reppers Drizzy and Wayne lace the record's latter half with, respectively, big-money braggadocio and free-associative weirdness. (DJ Booth)
"Pop That" has also received remix treatment courtesy of crooner Trey Songz.
Trey Songz wants his what licked? The R&B crooner is on a Trigga Mix roll. Yesterday, he released his version of Juicy J's "Bandz a Make Her Dance" and today he gives us his take on another big strip club song of the moment, French Montana's "Pop That." The explicit remix features Trigga rapping over the Uncle Luke-sampled beat and sharing his penchant for strippers. With lines like, "Beat it around my di**k, just like the beat I make that pu**y spit" and "Dark nights, treating pu**y like I'm Batman," it's definitely not for the faint of heart. (Rap-Up)
