has recently put in studio time with some hip-hop heavyweights, including Snoop Lion
, Tyler, the Creator and Pharrell
, and now French Montana
, the founder of fanute
, has been added to the former Disney Queen’s Rolodex (don’t bother Googling “Rolodex,” kids). The suddenly ubiquitous New York MC — who has made a 2 Chainz
-like rise through hip-hop in the past year thanks to his spunky guest spots and overall goofy energy — tells MTV Hive that he befriended Miley at a Grammy party
, where they bonded over their love of a particular herb. Soon after, they linked up in the studio.
“We became friends at the Clive Davis Grammy party,” Montana said. “I was sitting there with Puff. She was sitting there with Wiz [Khalifa]. She just kept looking at me laughing, I kept on looking at her laughing. I said, ‘What you laughing at?’ She said, ‘I know you high like me.’ After that, we became mad cool. I went over to the studio, just kicking it.”
He continued, “We working on something now. That’s just cool peoples.” So, Miley Cyrus: cool peoples, fanuter of squeaky clean Hannah Montana vibes.
