French Montana has called the shooting of Lil Tjay sad for the culture.
“It’s sad and it’s sad for hip-hop,” said French on “Sway in the Morning.”
“Nowadays, they’re making the artist the drug dealer and the killer and everything. We don’t got as many artists as it is. Probably like five artists in New York right now.”
French says that record labels profit from artists whether they live or die.
He added, “Record labels are getting life insurance on artists. It’s scary times that we live in. You gotta be mindful of that and take care of your health. They’re invested in your death now more than your career.”
French also spoke about trying to sign Lil Tjay, who is in hospital after being shot.
“I was trying to sign Lil Tjay when he first came out. So, we got dope, dope relationship with him,” he said. “He’s little bro. So, when I heard that this morning … it went right back to, we need to help as artists.”
