Bad Boy/Interscope rapper French Montana came a long way from Morocco, now he is one of the hottest New York rappers out at the current moment. Is he the next king of New York? Earlier today, the cover art for Montana’s long-delayed debut album, Excuse My French was released. The journey began years ago in the Bronx’s rough Mott Haven neighborhood, after Montana and his family migrated to the states from Africa. The final detestation arrives on April 16th and on the cover art, Montana reminds us where it all started at as he walks through the Moroccan desert. Montana told Rolling Stone the importance of his Moroccan heritage.
“The concept of the cover is to represent my journey from Morocco to New York, from a kid to a hustler, from the beginning to today,” French says. “The deserts represent the dry period of my life when I had nothing and I had to work to get that water and to make a living for me and my family. It was only right that I used my son for that picture. He represents my future and me; I represent his past. It is all about the journey of my life, my music, and my movement.”
