All anyone could really talk about at this year’s Grammy Awards was Kendrick Lamar’s performance, but French Montana feels “The Powers to Be” may have an agenda to use Kendrick to kill off street rap.
When asked why he thinks Kendrick sells more albums than street rappers, he tells the Breakfast Club crew:
“Because they position [Kendrick], like how they did at the Grammys, as the new music. It’s not that it’s not the right thing to do, but you see like the whole thing was Kendrick night.
“That [To Pimp A Butterfly] album don’t sound like nothing that’s out – the whole Hip Hop.
“I feel like they just position you as the new face of Hip Hop… They put him on that platform so they can shift music towards that direction.”
