There is no longer cause for speculation: French Montana has signed with Bad Boy Records.

French joined Diddy on BET’s “106 & Park” this week to make the announcement.

“For real for real, can’t nothing move in this city without us being a part of it. We the Yankees of this whole thing! It’s time for us to get what we supposed to get,” said Diddy of the signing.

“[French] got them pinstripes on and he ready to hit it out the park,” he said of the Bronx native.

French explained that he was happy to keep his basis of operations on the East Coast. “I really feel real good that’s why I kept it here in New York.”

“Why would I take my talent to South Beach? When I met with Puff and sat down and really spoke, he told me a couple of things and [he] never lied to me about nothing and always kept his word. It is what it is. It’s New York. I want to bring it back to New York.”
