French Montana made an appearance in Mac Miller’s Stop Making Excuses documentary back in 2016, and now the singer believes that if he had stayed close to Mac like he was back then he could’ve prevented the rapper’s untimely overdose.

In the said documentary, French told Mac Miller, “Listen to me, I’m your brother. This right here, you’re going to miss a couple of shows.” In the video Mac continues on to state, “I’d rather be the corny white rapper, than the drugged out mess who can’t even get out of his house. Overdosing is just not cool. There’s no legendary romance. You don’t go down in history because you overdosed… you just die.”

“If you saw the video that me and him did,” says French, referencing the documentary, “and I’m like, ‘bro, you’re overdoing it. Sometimes, people don’t have people that keep them grounded. It could go left. I just feel like they let him get away with whatever.” French continues on to claim that he always plays that big brother role, as he did when Mac was going hard in the documentary. He believes that if he stuck around to play that role longer, or if Mac had people who adequately stepped up and tried to stop him from using, the rapper would still be here today.
