French Montana stopped by Hot 97 personality Nessa‘s table in the radio room at the 2015 BET Awards over the weekend, and had some interesting things to say during their chat.

While they were talking about French‘s forthcoming Mac & Cheese: The Album, French hinted that he’d be joining Chris Brown on his One Hell Of A Nite Tour.

Though the opening acts announced are Fetty Wap, Kid Ink, Omarion and Teyana Taylor, perhaps this was French‘s way of announcing he’d too be on the road with them? Hmm!
