French Montana talks documentary about his immigrant story: “I want people to know me for the right reasons”


French Montana wants fans to know him for the right reasons, so he’s planning to show them who he is in a documentary. In an episode of Ebro Darden‘s The Messagewhich celebrated Arab Heritage Month, he gave some insight into what fans can expect to see.

“Well, this documentary just tells my immigrant story basically, and all the people that followed me from the day that I started till now,” he said. “I feel like a lot of people know me, but a lot of people just know me by the music. A lot of people know me from me dating people. It could be this, it could be that, but I want people to know me for the right reasons and I feel like this documentary just is more based on the struggle.”

According to French, the doc will show “me when I was young, from [when] my mother met my pops, [when] we came from Africa.” It also discusses him being on welfare, getting shot, meeting late rapper Chinx and Max B, who was sentenced to 75 years in prison for conspiracy charges in connection to armed robbery, kidnapping, aggravated assault and felony murder.

French gave a shout-out to Drake for helping him do the documentary, Max B “for letting them cameras come inside that maximum security prison and helping me document it” and Diddy.

He also shouted out his mother for making an appearance in the doc.
