Kanye West has formed a close bond with Khloé Kardashian's new boyfriend.

French Montana, who started dating the 30-year-old reality TV star in April, claims he talks to the 'New Slaves' hitmaker, who is married to Khloé's sister Kim Kardashian, ''about everything'' and they have a ''great relationship.''

The 29-year-old rapper told Complex magazine: ''That's Kanye, man, we just sit down and talk about everything's that going on with hip-hop... this and that.''

Kanye is also helping French with his music career.

The 'Pop That' rapper said: ''Kanye's overseeing the production of my entire album. I just wanna give my fans what they know me for. I don't want to change with what people are following.''

He added: ''We did like, four songs.''

French also claims that Kanye, 37, almost signed him to his record label a few years ago.

He said: ''Kanye was actually going to sign me. Since around that time, we both had great chemistry and a great relationship.''

French is the first person Khloé has dated since filing for divorce from her husband of four years, Lamar Odom, in December.

She recently admitted: ''French is just what I need right now.''
