Prior to his 2012 interview with Complex, everything seemed straight between Fiddy and French. However, Montana's comments over how he felt that getting into feuds was not a good look if you were trying to make money, got him into a little trouble.
"You should avoid beef if you trying to make money. People get scared when you try to beef with people," French told Complex. "In general, nobody want to stand next to you if somebody about to shoot you, unless you have a a big lick. They do that with 50 because 50 was the bank. They knew he was going to win. People ain't doing that [anymore]…I feel like beef hurt him. I feel like it helped Ross unite people. That's why Maybach Music is one of the biggest labels. It just makes sense"
When 50 Cent found out about the Coke Boy’s words, he took to one of his favorite mediums, Twitter, to let him know how he felt:
“French Montana you ain't Shit boy”
“You out your league talking about me you hoe. i read your little interview what the fuck is you high”
The outburst went on and on, to which French responded with a tweet back.
"@50cent damn homie last year u was da mannnnn homieeeeeee wat da fuuuckkk happen to uuuuuu"
This minor argument was squashed a year later when French put it to rest in his interview with Shade 45:
"Yeah, everything's straight,…we been making music, making music. Yeah, it's good for hip-hop. I mean, at the end of the day, [Rick] Ross my brother. So I'm not going to play both sides of the fence, but you know where I stand at. So I'm not really, you know, we ain't have no problem, we ain't got no real beef, but you know where I stand at. You know what I'm saying? So let's just keep it like that”
