Montana of 300 Explains ‘300’ Dispute With Chief Keef, Says Lyricism and Metaphors Important For Chicago Hip Hop

Posted onSeptember 23, 2014byKollegeKidd Staff



Fans of the Chicago Hip Hop scene may recall a brief twitter dispute between Montana of 300 and Chief Keef in 2012. Many fans of Chiraq’s drill culture have come to associate the term “300” with Chief Keef’s Black Disciple set. Sosa took issue with Montana of 300 for incorporating the numerical value in his stage name.

Montana sat down with Drea O of Hockstar to shed light on the social media incident.

“I don’t know what the f-ck [Chief Keef] thought. DGainz was shooting both our videos,” Montana explained. “He tweeted DGainz and was like, ‘Who the f-ck is Montana from 300?’ and didn’t even at me for me to see it. …I heard from a fan… then I seen the tweet and DGainz said ask him. Chief Keef didn’t at me, but everybody at me. My fans is clashing with Chief Keef fans. Chief Keef fans like, ‘Chief Keef said you not 300. You fake and your fufu.’ My fans like, ‘Montana been 300 way before Chief Keef ass was rapping.’ A few people like why you and Chief Keef beefing. I’m like that’s not beef. …Fans was hopping on it instigating it. He never said nothing to me ever. To me it was no beef.”

Montana also discussed his thoughts on the Chicago music scene. Montana doesn’t think Chicago is the savior for the new Hip Hop scene.

“I love my city but no,” he said. “The term ‘Hip Hop Is Dead’ because a lot of people aren’t taking their time to perfect their craft. A lot of people think Chicago is dumbed down rap. Drill music isn’t supposed to be lyrical. It isn’t supposed to have metaphors. I like metaphors. It’s so important in Hip Hop. It shows the creative side of your uniqueness as far as making people that’s listening use their mind.

Montana says the terms “foreigns,” “opps,” “thots” and “getting top” only come to mind when one thinks of Chicago Hip Hop.

“You gotta bring more than that,” he said. “It’s another side to the corner. That’s not what all Chicago is about. I think I’m actually showing that.”

There is special meaning to Montana of 300’s rap name. Actually, the “Montana” and “300” in the Chiraq artist’s name both hold special meaning.

“In school, I was Tony. We was hustling coming up, so that’s where the Montana came from,” he told RoseD of This Is 50. “It’s Tony Montana. People was calling me that in high school. The 300 is nothing gang related. It stand for ‘no surrender, no retreat.’ I’ve been Montana 300 since 2008.”



Montana elaborated more on the use of 300 in his name during an interview with Hip Hops Revival.

“My 300 is based off the movie ‘300,’” he explained. “I started it in like 2008. It was part of a rap group. It was three of us. Now it’s two. My 300 is based off the movie, no surrender, no retreat. Against all odds, 300 soldiers went against and killed thousands. It represents me in so many ways. Even where I’m at today, I got there on my own. …No radio, no famous friends, no people giving shout outs on social media, no features, no none of that. I’m at where I’m at today off my lyrics.”

“…It’s nothing gang related.”
