Rapper French Montana attended the 2013 BET Awards at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. He was photo’d inside of the ‘BET Awards Winner’s Room‘ in a snakeskin paneled leather shirt and snakeskin leather sweatpants paired with snakeskin Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers. Montana’s style has evolved and I like how he sticks to wearing animal prints. What do you think about Montana’s outfit?

French Montana’s ‘Excuse My French’ Cover Art & Tracklisting

excusemyfrench

I am so proud of French Montana! To see him blossom and become a major rapper in the music industry means a lot. I remember Montana from his humble beginnings during my XXL mag days. I interned there in 2010, when he did his first photo shoot with the publication. Montana came a long way from his younger days in Morocco, Northern Africa. At 13, Montana, his parents and two younger brothers migrated to the Bronx, NY.  His debut, Excuse My French arrives on May 21 (Biggie Smalls birthday) via Bad Boy/Interscope Records. The project will feature the singles “Pop That,” “Marble Floors,” “Freak,” and “Ain’t Worry Bout Nothin“. On the album, Montana get assists from Diddy, Rick Ross, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Birdman, Ace Hood, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Ne-Yo and plenty of others. Pre order the album on iTunes!

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.”

excusemyfrench

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.”
