In 1991 Luther Campbell, aKa Uncle Luke, released “I Wanna Rock (Doo Doo Brown).” More than 20 years later the famous opening line “Don’t stop pop that pu**y/ Let me see you doo doo brown” is at the center of controversy. But luckily, Uncle Luck isn’t directly involved. This feud (or not) belongs to French Montana and independent, Texas artist DJ Chose. Allow me to explain:
In 2010, DJ Chose and his Brook Gang imprint took the Prairie View University party scene by storm with the release of “Pop That” which sampled Luke’s voice chanting “Don’t Stop Pop That Pu**sy” on the hook. The song spread throughout the Southern region and is now being played in Texas’ largest radio market, Houston.

Fast forward to June 2012, French Montana recruits Rick Ross, Drake and Lil Wayne for new single “Pop That” to be featured on French’s upcoming album Excuse My French, in stores July 17th.

Really Tho? As a Houstonian and supporter of the independent music scene in the great state of Texas, I can’t help but side-eye Mr. French Montana for “Pop That.” As I said before, “I Wanna Rock” is over 20 years old and, although I’m sure there has been remakes of the song since then, I do not think it’s a coincidence that both Brook Gang and French Montana’s rendition of the popular booty-popping song share indistinguishable similarities.
One may argue that French Montana has no idea that Brook Gang or “Pop That” exist considering the song isn’t a national hit. But I would remind you that French Montana performed for a sold out crowd at Drake’s Club Paradise Tour in Houston TX on May 17th. Even if you tried to avoid hearing Brook Gang’s “Pop That” here in Houston, you would fail worse than Lebron in the last 5 minutes of a game.
French Montana was rumored to have shot the video for “Pop That” Memorial Day day weekend in Miami. That’s enough time to have recorded a song with a group of guys you’re on tour with, right?
Maybe I’m a biased, disgruntled Houstonian that’s grown to love DJ Chose and Brook Gang’s “Pop That,” but that’s why we have our Mr. Sold Out readers!
I want to know your thoughts;
Is French Montana’s and Brook Gang’s “Pop That” too close for comfort? If you were DJ Chose how would you react after hearing French Montana’s “Pop That”?
