French Montana scored his first #1 single with “Pop That,” featuring Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne a few weeks ago. However, it looks like the rapper that they sample hasn’t been compensated for it yet. Uncle Luke got up with MTV News this past weekend at the BET Hip- Hop Awards and said that there’s no check in his pocket yet for ‘Pop That.”
“When I heard the song I said, ‘Oh this is a hit,’ and the next thing I said is, ‘Where’s my check?” Luke told MTV News.
“Ain’t nobody told me about my check yet. I have not gotten the check yet, so I’m looking for the check,” he said, adding that he would track down French’s boss to sort it all out. “I’m gonna talk to Diddy in the back about it.”
Looks like they’ll get it worked out sooner than later, as Uncle Luke would join French Montana and Diddy on stage for a performance of “Pop That” at the BET Hip-Hop Awards.
