French Montana opens up about Kanye West’s new music and the inspiration behind it.

The “Unforgettable” rapper has teased that fans can expect something “so crazy” and “outside the box” from the “Famous” hitmaker’s next set of songs and revealed how running his popular Sunday church service in Los Angeles has influenced his “new direction.”

Speaking to Zane Lowe on his Apple Beats 1 radio show, Montana teased: “He’s working on something that’s so crazy. I think he’s working on something bigger than music.

“When I went to go see him, he showed me something that was so crazy. But, that’s what makes people like him stand out because he always thinks outside the box — really outside the box. Shout out to Kanye.”

The 34-year-old star — who used to date West’s sister-in-law Khloé Kardashian — says that the “FourFiveSeconds” hitmaker wants to “change the world” with his art.

He continued: “I just see that [West is] trying to do something that’s going to change the world.

And commenting on his new direction, Montana added: “The whole time I’m with him, he’s telling me about the church, and he’s telling me about what his direction with the music is going.

“The whole time he’s like, ‘I’m thinking about doing this. All right? You know. I’m in that spirit. You know?’

“So I play him a couple records.

“I played a record called “Wiggle It.” When the record stopped, he said, ‘What you doing with that record?’ I said, ‘My God. I thought you was going towards Jesus.’ This is across the street right here.”

Kanye’s next project is Yandhi, which is set to feature collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Dua Lipa, Ty Dolla $ign and other.
