French Montana is many things, including an entrepreneur and Grammy-nominated rapper. But what did it take for a hungry talent from Africa to reach those lofty heights? The Moroccan-born and New York-bred multi-platinum artist behind hits such as Pop That, Unforgettable, and No Stylist is giving us a deeper look through his lens. This globe-spanning showcase provides views of French we haven’t seen, including the unbreakable bond he shares with his single mother, Khadija.
Few artists have dominated the charts and impacted the evolution of New York rap like French Montana. From his underground days to chart-busting singles and moment-stealing features, he has been a force in the game for some time, and this film only adds to the legacy of his artistry. Depicting his journey to success, this documentary also features an incredible look at the sustained drive and weighty toll required of those striving for stardom.––Casey Baron
