Rap veterans and now-former foes French Montana and Jim Jones have finally squashed their beef. Having lasted for almost two decades the pair of New York rap artists went on Instagram Live this week to talk and reconcile.
Jim + French = Friends Again
The pair discussed an MTV award show in which French gave Jones the middle finger after sneaking in.
“15 YEARS OF BEEFING ENDED UP WITH LAUGHS AND WAR STORIES BIG MOMENT FOR HIP HOP SHOUT OUT TO @jimjonescapo #thatsafact ALL THE BLOGS THAT COVERED ALL THE BULLSHIT MAKE SURE YALL PUT THE SAME ENERGY TO MAKING PEACE 🌊” – French Montana’s Instagram
“I remember you trying to sneak inside MTV Awards, and me and Juelz [Santana] were in a Phantom. I don’t know if you remember that but you threw your middle finger up at me and I said ‘I should get out right know and whoop your f**king a** out you little dumb n***a,’ you was by yourself. Me and Juelz was in a Phantom and we had mad n***as behind and I left that s**t alone, Juelz said ‘leave that n***a alone, why you always bothering him man,’ and I said said ‘alright Juelz, man.’ He was like ‘stop, man.’” – Jim Jones
A Message To The Youth
The pair also encouraged younger rappers not to follow in their ways of feuding. They both encouraged the youth to put love over hate.
“If there’s anybody out there watching from the young n***as, man, learn from this, Don’t waste 15 years in the game when y’all could have been getting all kinds of bags together.” – French Montana
“There’s a lot of foolish beefs and foolish shootings and there’s a lot going on right now with everybody cooped up in the house.” – Jim Jones
Wait, There’s More
Jones has helped launch a new anti-COVID-19 line-up of Dipset merchandise. Jimmy went to Instagram last week to show off his stash and shared pics of his gear including “F**k COVID-19” hats and an anti-coronavirus mask.
