French Montana Weighs In On Rap vs Rock Debate

EXCLUSIVE

For those wondering, French Montana has the answer for how hip-hop surpassed rock in popularity on the charts -- his new album, "Jungle Rules"!

We got French out in New York where he was mobbed by fans and asked him about the new Nielsen report that hip-hop surpassed rock consumption in America by a little over 2% recently. 

French says he's not surprised since he thinks his own album had a lot to do with the numbers, especially when it comes to a specific audience that's eating it up.
