French Montana Says He Was Asked To Join Maybach Music Group

French Montana speaks on possibly signing to Maybach Music, explains how he recruited Mase for the "New York Minute” remix.

While Bronx rapper French Montana is currently signed to the mother of Waka Flocka, Debra Antney’s, Mizay Entertainment the rapper is still weighing his options when it comes to other labels.

French Montana revealed to XXL Magazine that he was asked to join Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group, but explained that he’s still at a point where he’s working on his own movement.

“He [Rick Ross] asked me to join MMG, so I’m definitely entertaining the idea. I definitely got a lot of respect for his movement, you know what I’m saying?  [However] right now, I’m just trying to figure out everything with myself, with my own entity, and my own movement,” French Montana explained. “Then I’ma figure out everything else ’cause there was a lot of things I had to fall back off for me to get my situation straight.”

When asked how he maintains his buzz French Montana shared that the secret to keeping your name out there is by remaining both busy and relevant.

“Man, I just really don’t get all the way into it, I just be working. I’m just staying busy, making a lot of music, and staying relevant, that’s all it is,” said French Montana. “It’s just staying persistent. I don’t really get into the politics, because at the end of the day everybody don’t want me to win. I just stay away from all that and stay working on my music and everything that I got to do.”

French Montana also spoke on his collaboration with Mase and how he was able to recruit the usually low-key rapper for the “New York Minute” remix.

“He just hit me out of nowhere one day. I looked at the phone like, ‘Am I bugging?’ Yeah, I was just laughing. Me and him kicked it, man,” said the rapper. “He cool as hell. He loved that ‘New York Minute’ record so, he just jumped on it for me. I made a lot of history, man.”

    This guy is not an mc, he's a rapper, rappers don't have longevity in the game, so signing to Rick Ross and rinsing this music industry for all it's worth would be a clever idea

      it's not like he has anything to lose, this dude sucks on the mic so if anyone is willing to sign him and give him a check he should take that shit straight to the bank

      Not at all. Most of the time when you sign to another artist, Your moves become dependent on that rapper's move.

    French was signed to Akon's label but is no longer on it and you have to ask what's going on over there with Akon. Frenchie left. T-Pain left. Lady Gaga doesn't even acknowledge him anymore….. wtf?
