French Montana Cites Max B As Inspiration, Talks Surviving Gunshot Wound & Fatherhood

French Montana addresses a slew of topics, including narrowly surviving a gunshot wound to the head.

French Montana has certainly had his share of success in the past year, signing a deal with Bad Boy and Maybach Music Group, while landing collaborations with the likes of Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, and more.

Still, French hasn't forgotten his source of inspiration, which also serves as a cautionary tale. "My best friend (rapper Max B) is serving 75 years in prison," said French in an interview with USA Today. "Only one of us made it. I think about all this when I make music, of all the sacrifices made. Nothing is just going to come to you, you have to make it happen."

The rapper also recalled surviving a gunshot wound to the head in the Bronx. "I try not to bring that memory back. I'm glad I made it through that time, but, yeah, that experience was part of the album."

Finally, French Montana spoke on how he intends to raise his son, who is now three years-old. "Kids who have everything grow up thinking that everybody owes them," he explained. "I want him to grow up like me. I want him to struggle a little so he knows how to be a man. I've got to leave him in the desert, and when he gets older, he'll understand why his father left him like that."

    he doesn't actually mean hes going to leave his son in the desert you stupid fucks, its called a "metaphor" or figure of speech if you will... in other words hes not going to give him everything he asks for so he knows how to work for it when he gets older instead of expecting hand outs... oh and French is from Morocco where i'm pretty sure there are plenty of deserts...go fuck yourself

    Getting shot seems to be the best thing a rapper can do for his career. Brilliant

    "i imagine it feels like nothing, maybe like a breeze blowing past the side of your head" Yeah, you imagine from your parents house in nowhere ville. A bullet can still touch you when your grazed. That's closer than most people would ever want to be to a bullet.

    why wont anyone ask him about filming dj khaled's mom for 50 cent? why does dj khaled still fuck with him?

    • datnigga

      Cuz they make each other money and that's more important to those greedy industry slaves than actual friendship, loyalty, trust, and respect. These interviewers are too politically correct to ask real questions like that so they just avoid it, and if brought up, these fags avoid the question anyways to avoid having their image ruined. Just like when Ross was confronted about being a CO in a interview. "Look, the boss done did it all to get money." So why the fuck did you lie about it when you came in the rap game? I think these people really believe their own lies lol and they think if they just avoid the subject long enough people will forget and move on. Real recognize Real, fake recognize fake, and Khaled, Ross, Montana are all perfect for each other.

    • Anonymous

      Like an interview explains the realities of the streets in Bronx, NY. Frenchie was in the streets and being grazed still means you were shot. Grow up child.
