Bad Boy Records rapper French Montana is not losing sleep over being called out on Ying Yang Twins' new "Sayin My Word" and downplayed their verbal shots.
Montana jumped onto his Twitter page this week and laughed off the controversy.
"Haannnn lol RT @ComplexMusic: They @YingYangTwins are back to reclaim "HANH" from Kanye West and French Montana. http://cmplx.it/1aEf4YC," Montana tweeted July 22. (French Montana's Twitter)
Group members D-Roc and Kaine released the "Sayin My Word" track to let loose on their issues with artists using their "Hanh" catchphrase .
On "Sayin My Word," the primary complaint is that use of "HANH" is not attributed to its creators by its adopters. It's no surprise that we've never heard French or Kanye working "Shout out to the Ying Yang Twins!" into any of their songs, but the twins themselves would rather not let this issue rest. So they ask: "Excuse me Mr. P. Diddy and Jay-Z, you presidents, if your artists use our lyrics, don't that make us relevant?" Relevant might be a stretch, but one can't deny the legacy of the seemingly ever present "HANH" in today's rap landscape. This year may actually be the ten-year anniversary of "HANH." In that case, congratulations are certainly in order, and perhaps it is time for "HANH" users to acknowledge the ad-lib's pioneers. (Complex)
Recently, D Roc hit up SOHH and talked about Ying Yang being the originators of today's current twerk movement.
"I look at it like everybody's showing love for us starting something that everybody loves. The only thing I can really say about it is we need to come back and show them how to really do it. Everybody just took it and went with it, turning it into something else but they're not doing it right. When you do it right, you expect that. Everybody's just playing with it right now. In the same twerk songs, they're too hard, they're doing too much. It's supposed to be about the female and what you're supposed to do is get them to shake that a**. They need to know how to shake their a**. The thing about it is they tell a female what to do but they do it too hard at the same time. You look at them and they look like they're not supposed to be doing it. They talk to the girl like they would talk to a n*gga, like, "I'll beat your a**, start shaking that a**." I'm like, "God d*mn." What do you want to do, fight her or have her shake her a**?" (SOHH)
Ying Yang's Kaine also co-signed Roc's stance and spoke on their trend-setting ways.
"There's artists out there making nice songs but they're not making songs to the magnitude that we do like when we came up with it with Mr. Collipark. It goes back to the saying, "If you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself." That's what we're about to do. We're about to take our lane and make people move. If you're not doing it right, then you gotta get over to the slow lane." (SOHH)
