French Montana gave a shout out to Akon during his interview with DJ Funk Flex for giving him a fake watch on his birthday. French who was signed to Akon’s label for six months 10 years ago talked about the issue with Flex.
As the duo discussed that business relationship, Flex brought up a ‘watch story,’ saying “we can’t tell the watch story, don’t tell it now,” which forced French to divulge.
“Oh, Stop!” French said as he laughed. “Shouts to Akon, he gave me a fake watch for my birthday, I’m heated,” he said, laughing again.
The duo attempted to clear the air by confirming their love for the singer-songwriter but said the situation had to be resolved.
“I’m still waiting for my other watch Akon,” Montana said. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Akon I need you to fix this up,” Funk added. “Keep it a buck. Listen, we gonna go on the ‘gram, we gon’ tell fake watch busters to leave you alone, they not gonna post this up. But, we gotta clear this up.”⠀⠀⠀⠀
As French laughed, he continued with the story,
“It was my birthday too,” he said. “He was like, ‘Close your eyes, I got a present for you,’” French recalled. “Then he put a fake watch on my wrist, I’m heated.”
Flex asked if French knew the watch was fake at the time, but the rapper had no idea. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Nah, I didn’t know it was fake,” he said, as he explained that he took the watch to the jewelers to be cleaned. He said he told the jeweler that Akon got it for him as a gift for his birthday. But, the jeweler said, “Akon didn’t give you this, I know him.”
French laughed, saying Akon may not have known it was fake, though. However, it’s been 10 years and French still hasn’t received a new watch from Akon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“That’s my brother but you know,”
