Jay Electronica of Roc Nation has revealed his respect for Bad Boy Records’ French Montana in light of his current war of words with hip-hop foe 50 Cent.
Even though Jay admits he does not see Montana as the most lyrical emcee, he says he’s feeling his flashy image.
“Truth be told French Montana is not a lyricall n*gga but he got that Birdman swagg. Its the magnolia in me,” he tweeted December 25th.
“So I f*x w frenchy but for not for the raps for the swag”
“Ps, I dare 50 to say one word!!!”
“50 where you at you sneak instagram a** n*hgga. I seen ya sh*t!! What’s good. Ricky rozzay LL cool jayd that a**”

Around mid-December, West Coast rapper Game spoke on the Montana/50 feud.
“I’m so far removed from that beef with him that I had to pretty much laugh at it,” Game said, referring to Fif’s diss to him and Young Buck on “My Life.” “I’m a big fan of Eminem so I like what he did. Adam [Levine] is my dude. I helped clear that record for 50. Me and Adam got the same management, so people had to come see me and play the record. So I heard me get dissed before people heard it. … I seen him and French Montana going at it about a week ago on Twitter. French was making fun of him and doing the same things that I was doing. But at the end of the day, it’s healthy for the game. I love it, it keeps me laughing at the crib.”
Unlike Game, Maybach Music Group’s Gunplay had little interest in the new rap feud when asked about it a week prior.
“Listen, I don’t give a flying f*ck about them n*ggas, man. I don’t care if they fight each other, I don’t care. You understand what I’m saying,” Gunplay said in an interview referring to Fif and French. “I don’t even see ‘em, they’re nothing to me, nobody is really, I don’t see nobody. I see right through all these c*nts, there’s nothing. I don’t care what this c*nt was talking to this c*nt about, they can sit there and have a c*nt-versation all day, I don’t care. That’s they a**. I f*cks with French, that’s my homie, but where he eats, I don’t sh*t.” (Global Grind)
In late November, Fif likened Montana to his one-time rap foe Ja Rule.
“He runs his mouth prematurely, he’s not ready to compete on any level with me,” Fif said in an interview. “When I drop a record and it becomes the number one selling record in twelve hours, after you saying that, I think you should be quiet a little bit. You should hear the crickets now. So moving forward, I’ll put him completely out of business. I’ll put him out of business off the block, the corner — he only had one song and you didn’t even care about it because it was him, it had four other people on it. You don’t got to pick a side — my run itself will pick a side. That’s your new Ja Rule right now. He’s going to be your new Ja Rule.”
