FRENCH MONTANA Plays the Fox Theatre, 3/20
Z2 Entertainment is proud to present French Montana at the Fox Theatre on Wednesday, March 30th. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 1st for $20.00.
The streets are talking: French Montana is one of the hottest rappers in the game right now. And what the streets want, the streets shall get.
"I just love hip-hop. [At first] the rapping was just a hobby," explains Montana. "I figured out it was a career when I got my first check, [after] I came out with the Cocaine City DVD. It was a winner from the jump."
"Winning," it was; but Montana is no new jack that got lucky. This shot caller's come up dates back almost a decade. When street DVD's were king, Montana's Cocaine City series, which he began dropping in 2002, were grassroots video royalty. Featuring raw and uncut interviews with both up-and-coming and established artists like Jadakiss, 50 Cent and Young Jeezy, each volume was also interspersed with music from Montana himself.
While the streets patiently await Montana's highly anticipated official debut, he continues to stay in the mix. Having become highly sought after as a guest artist, he has lent his talents to Rick Ross' smash street single, "Stay Schemin," as well as Akon's, "Hurt Somebody." XXL Magazine recognized and placed Montana on the magazine's annual Freshman Class list which highlights rappers on the rise. And recently, Montana dropped yet another fiery mixtape, Coke Boys 3. He plans to drop Mac & Cheese 3 in the near future.
Following through on the enormous expectations he has built up for himself is a matter of keeping his ear to the streets. "I just pay attention to what people say," offers Montana, who is currently a featured act on Drake's Club Paradise Tour. "The people chose me. You can't come out and say you hot. The people gotta choose you."
