Hip-Hop Rumors: French Montana Being Courted by Jay-Z AND Diddy!? Drake’s Tour Rider & Plan to Sell A Milli!! Quickies!

French Montana Looking For Right Deal…

Rumors swirled last week that French would be signing to Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music label after the two were photographed together backstage at one of Jay-Z and Kanye’s recent tour stops at Madison Square Garden. This is not the first time French rumors have made their away across the Internet. A couple of months ago, talk of him signing to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group were also everywhere…

Now, it appears two equally as bigm if not bigger, names within Hip-Hop and the music industry in general have a great interest in the “Choppa Choppa Down” rapper… their names you ask? Jay-Z and Diddy. French, who recently spoke to DJ Absolut on Hot 97 said the following: “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.”

Sound off about your overall thoughts on French and which “conglomerate” you think he should be a part of in the comment section!

Drake Wants A Million Sold But Will Settle For Positive Reviews, A Bag of Sour Gummy Bears, and Some Chicken Wings…

When speaking to Billboard about album sales for his sophomore release Take Care, Drake said, “that’s the golden number for anyone. I doubt that’ll happen. That’s some Lil Wayne, Eminem, iconic sh*t. I don’t know if I’m there yet. Whoever goes out and buys it, I’m happy. I’d rather have great reviews than numbers. I’d rather walk out of my house and hear seven cars playing it than hear that I did 900,000.

With artists like Mac Miller and Wale individually netting over 150,000 albums sold in their first week, we don’t see how Drake won’t do at least 500,000, but we think a million is way out of reach for a first week sales number. Like he said, he’s not Eminem or Lil Wayne.

Check out what AllHipHop.com had to say about Drake’s album by reading our review of Take Care here … and yes that is Drake’s tour rider above.

Not Only is Jay-Z GQ’s Man of the Year, ?uestlove Says He’s “Cooler Than Lawyers”:

Congrats to Jigga! Is there really more to be said? If you want to read GQ’s entire piece on Mr. Carter, click here. N0w onto The Roots’ drummer’s thoughts on his former boss Jay-Z while they were working on their Def Jam-released album, Game Theory, several years ago:

“This is when we were releasing Game Theory, back in 2006. Lawyers were holding up the record because of the “You and Whose Army” sample. Jay-Z was still president of the label then. I was like, “Can you get me on the phone with those guys in five minutes?” He was like, “Yeah.” I said, “Do you know those guys?” He said, “No.” I was confused. So I asked, “Well, how are you going to get through to those guys?” He said, “Watch.” Sure enough, in five minutes I was jogging on the treadmill talking to the Radiohead guys. Lawyers can’t make it work, but Jay-Z can.” –?uestlove

Quickies:

-Bun B said he would love to be a part of Slaughterhouse…In related “news,” Joe Budden revealed that Slaughterhouse’s Shady Records debut is about 95 percent done, with a single expected to drop in December or January!

-Curren$y has announced via Twitter that his next album, The Stoned Immaculate, will be dropping in March.

-A recent picture popped up online showing the 12-song tracklist and guests for Common’s upcoming album, which was entirely produced by No I.D., The Dreamer, The Believer.

    If you want to get a good nights sleep go buy drakes album but the. General public annoucement warns you not to drive , be around a bunch of homies or physically listen it while operating machinery . While there great expectations of being able to put your newborn to sleep without hold him this album make lead to a severe case of absolute bordom. I like the joint wwith bun b , the track just blaze did , look what you done , kendrick lamr and andre3000 verses but hoever that’s where it ends ..have caution while listening to this album ..thank me later. Peace! Also drinking while listening to this album may cause extreme drowsiness…thank me later.

    • NorthDollasTX

      you better than ME playboi becuz i wasnt even gonna waste space on a free download … but that review was was hella clever “please dont play while operating heavy machinery”

  • MrTroyMercy

    Pss fucc a spellcheck.

    Slaughterhouse were the one who wanted to include BunB in the group.Royce said in the past as a joke that Bun B is already a member, he just doesn’t know about it. Like Redman being part of the Wu I guess.But I would be 100% for Bun B to officially join them, he is one of the last veterans that I respect the most in hiphop… It would actually give me a better interest about the crew!
