He is the founder and CEO of Cocaine City Records.
November 9, 1984 (age
South Bronx, New York, U.S.
He explained: "A lot of people don't realize I come from Morocco in North Africa, born and raised.
I was over there until I was 13. France had tried to take over Morocco, not in my time obviously,
but there are still influences there from the French culture. So when I came over here, the name
French just kind of stuck with me.
Then the Montana thing I just picked it up. There's the
whole cocaine connotation from the name of my DVD series with Tony Montana, plus I kind
of bare a resemblance in the skin tone. So I tacked that on to the 'French' part and voila,
you got French Montana, the macaroni with the cheese!"
