The moment has finally come, ladies and gentlemen.
Earlier this evening on OVO Sound Radio, French Montana premiered his brand new (and much talked about) single “No Shopping” featuring Drake. The new Murda Beatz-produced mbanger will live on French’s upcoming album Mac & Cheese 4 dropping next month on August 19th.
This song’s been hyped up for quite some time ever since French leaked a snippet of Drake seemingly starting his verse with, “Pump…pump pump it up,” opening up a floodgate of theories that Drizzy was taking jabs at Joe Budden.
One of those theorists was Budden himself, who used that among other things (see: “4PM In Calabasas”) to beef up his case that Drizzy was in fact taking jabs. Beating Aubrey to the punch, Joe let loose two diss tracks back-to-back, baiting Drizzy to give him an official response.
Well, as we can hear in the new track, Drake did his usual subliminal response to Joe. “I’m not a one hit wonder, they know all my stuff/You let me turn into the n**** that you almost was,” Drizzy raps.
One would assume Drake’s referring to “Pump It Up” as Joe’s one hit wonder, and is also saying he became what Joe always wanted to. Quite direct, without actually saying his name.
Despite the possible diss, the song itself is great and French certainly has another winner on his hands. Without further adieu, stream French’s new single “No Shopping” below and let us know what you think.
