I always taught that if you really want something in life, the efforts of what you want has to come from within. That way to look at things can be implied when it comes to the come up of French Montana. He couldn’t get any DJ’s to really support his music like that so he took the matters into his own hands and created Cocaine City DVD, a visual mixtape showcasing his talents. It was a smart move and got his buzz up there with the top newcomers from New York City. French & Max B LIT the streets and internet up with their collaborations, which led to French getting a deal with Akon. Now he’s currently doing his thing with the guidance of Debra Antry, Waka Flocka’s mom. The cleverness of French is he knows he isn’t the most lyrical dude on the market nor does he claim to be. His beat selection and flow on the track really helps him and people gravitate to it including myself, I been supporting French when he was a skinny dude from the Bronx battling up at the Fight Club to his beefs with Dipset & Lil’ Cease to now. Here’s a classic record from French called Henny & My 44. Sidenote: I’m as about as confused as you are to see French in this picture with Jay-Z & Usher.
