When Thug heard the comments, he too came for French’s neck, but instead insulted the “Unforgettable” artist. Thug and French continued to trade shots, which has now culminated in French telling Fat Joe that the two “ain’t got no beef” during an Instagram Live session for Fat Joe's The Joprah Show.
“I want the people to know, all I did was stand up for myself at every situation,” French said. “The Jim Jones beef, that was Max [B] beef but he’s my brother, so his beef is my beef. And I beefed with Jim 15 years ‘cause of Max, and I still didn’t squash the beef with Jim until Max said, ‘It’s all good.’ So that’s what type of guy I am.”
French continued, “You not gonna come and call me a fool knowing it was about something else that had nothing to do with me and Kendrick. It was wack and I hated that it happened like that since it’s Ramadan, it’s my second day fasting. I want to do the positive thing here and stay out the way of trouble ‘cause at the end of the day, me, Thug, and Kendrick is three different artists. I just feel like I want everybody to do their thing. I ain’t got no beef with him. It wasn’t no real beef. It was a miscommunication.”
Last week, French also told Complex that he “might outshine” Kendrick if they both headlined the same festival. “I might outshine him... not because I'm a better rapper or whatever it is. It's just that I got more hits. Kendrick Lamar got albums. He got masterpieces. But if you was to put us on the festival stage, I would outshine him because I have more hits than Kendrick Lamar.”
Thug later expressed his disapproval. “Stupid ass n**** say he got more hits than Kendrick Lamar,” Thugger said in a clip shared to social media. “Fool.” Those comments resulted in Thug and French taking a number of jabs at one another’s legacy and financial standing.
As for the 15-year-old beef between French and Jones, that was deaded earlier this month when the two hopped on IG Live. Max B also ended his own beef with Jones in December.
