French Montana and Khloe Kardashian are officially an item, which has increased the attention the rapper is getting from the tabloids.
During an interview with Billboard, French revealed that he’s aware of the benefits of dating a Kardashian.
“I want to capitalize on it,” says Montana. “I’ll get a fan base from everywhere. I just hope I’ll be able to connect with everything that’s going on.”
French adds that his famous girlfriend warned him of the media frenzy. “She told me, ‘They will spread negative energy if they can. Don’t let it get to you,'” he says.
Besides being a magnet for tabloid attention, Khloe has also aided in his music projects. “She’s definitely given her feedback on the songs,” he says, adding that “Explicit” is her favorite track.
In case you’re wondering, Khloe isn’t bothered by her boyfriend’s comments to Billboard, specifically the idea of capitalizing on her fame. She’s tweeted, “It’s amusing to me that Y’all think I don’t see it. I was the first one to see it. I just don’t care.”
The rapper is currently working on his new album, Mac & Cheese, due out later this year on Bad Boy/Interscope.
