Montana of 300 Explains ‘300’ Dispute With Chief Keef, Says Lyricism and Metaphors Important For Chicago Hip Hop



Fans of the Chicago Hip Hop scene may recall a brief twitter dispute between Montana of 300 and Chief Keef in 2012. Many fans of Chiraq’s drill culture have come to associate the term “300” with Chief Keef’s Black Disciple set. Sosa took issue with Montana of 300 for incorporating the numerical value in his stage name.

Montana sat down with Drea O of Hockstar to shed light on the social media incident.

“I don’t know what the f-ck [Chief Keef] thought. DGainz was shooting both our videos,” Montana explained. “He tweeted DGainz and was like, ‘Who the f-ck is Montana from 300?’ and didn’t even at me for me to see it. …I heard from a fan… then I seen the tweet and DGainz said ask him. Chief Keef didn’t at me, but everybody at me. My fans is clashing with Chief Keef fans. Chief Keef fans like, ‘Chief Keef said you not 300. You fake and your fufu.’ My fans like, ‘Montana been 300 way before Chief Keef a-- was rapping.’ A few people like why you and Chief Keef beefing. I’m like that’s not beef. …Fans was hopping on it instigating it. He never said nothing to me ever. To me it was no beef.”

Montana also discussed his thoughts on the Chicago music scene. Montana doesn’t think Chicago is the savior for the new Hip Hop scene.

“I love my city but no,” he said. “The term ‘Hip Hop Is Dead’ because a lot of people aren’t taking their time to perfect their craft. A lot of people think Chicago is dumbed down rap. Drill music isn’t supposed to be lyrical. It isn’t supposed to have metaphors. I like metaphors. It’s so important in Hip Hop. It shows the creative side of your uniqueness as far as making people that’s listening use their mind.

Montana says the terms “foreigns,” “opps,” “thots” and “getting top” only come to mind when one thinks of Chicago Hip Hop.

“You gotta bring more than that,” he said. “It’s another side to the corner. That’s not what all Chicago is about. I think I’m actually showing that.”
