French Montana and Jim Jones have reconciled after years of bad blood. ✌️

Describing the peaceful get together as a "big moment for hip-hop," French hosted fellow New York rapper Jim Jones on his Cocaine City-themed Instagram Live session late Thursday night.

"15 years of beefing ended up with laughs and war stories," Montana captioned an excerpt showing the two reflecting on a run-in during a past MTV event.

"You threw your middle finger up at me – I said, 'I should get out right now and whoop your fuckin' ass," Jones lightheartedly recalled, noting that he was riding in a Rolls-Royce Phantom with former Dipset partner Juelz Santana at the time.

"I remember that shit like yesterday," French responded with a smile.

Though he mentioned the generational differences – "more contact" – between conflict back in the day compared to now,  French wanted all the "young n****s" to learn from this moment.

"Don't waste 15 years in the game when y'all could have been getting all kinds of bags together," he said.

Jones agreed with his observation, adding "there's a lot of foolish beefs and foolish shootings" happening right now even though everyone is supposed to be in quarantine.

While this live stream marked the first time French and Jones have appeared friendly in public, the former previously revealed the dissolution of their lingering issues back in a December 2019 interview with DJ Akademiks.

French's mentor Max B, who's currently serving a reduced 12-year prison sentence for aggravated manslaughter, also squashed his longtime beef with Jones when French did.

As for French's Instagram message to rap media, "ALL THE BLOGS THAT COVERED ALL THE BULLSHIT MAKE SURE YALL PUT THE SAME ENERGY TO MAKING PEACE 🌊," Daquan's got you!

On Friday, the 35-year-old rapper indirectly celebrated his absence of altercation with the new Brooklyn drill-inspired single "That's A Fact." Listen below one time. 😎
