Despite Lil Poopy wearing T-shirts bearing the words "Coke Boys," leading some to believe he's a part of French Montana's team, the Bad Boy rapper says that's not the case.

In an interview with Philadelphia radio station Wired 96.5, Montana shot down rumors that Poopy is his artist. "He was never my artist," he says. "I never want no kid talking like a grown man."

Montana also feels that Poopy's father, Luis Rivera, might be pushing his child in the wrong direction. "It comes down to the parents before it comes down to anything else," he explains. "The parents gotta make sure [he's] on right path. When I see him [Poopy] I show him love, but I never co-signed any of that."

Meanwhile, Montana expressed his sympathy over the drive-by shooting that occurred near his tour bus last week in Philadelphia. As we previously reported, an unknown gunman fired shots into a crowd of people, killing one person and injuring another victim. Police say that Montana nor his entourage were the intended targets of the particular shooting.

"My deepest thoughts and sympathies go out to the families of the victims, as well as all of those who were affected," he tweeted.

He went on to explain his innocence in the tragedy. "My bus was located in the vicinity of the incident that took place last night in Philadelphia. I had a peaceful concert and was not involved," the 'Excuse My French' creator also wrote.

Authorities have made no arrest in the case and they are asking the public's help in solving the shooting.
