From early childhood Montana was interested in rap as well as football (soccer), being influenced particularly by such artists as Wu-Tang Clan, 50 Cent, The Notorious B.I.G, Snoop Dogg, Tupac Shakur and Nas. When 13 years old, the boy together with the whole family moved to the USA, where he was educated at Roosevelt and Lehman High Schools in The Bronx, New York City. However, his father returned to Morocco, and French needed to support his mother and two younger siblings. From 2002 until 2011, French together with Cokeboy Los was creating the DVD series entitled “Cocaine City”. As Montana wanted to attract the attention of a wider audience, he included meetings with both well-known and young artists, and this way the popularity of “Cocaine City” grew and French was able to increase his net worth. During the period of more than eight years, they released eight editions thus significantly increasing the overall amount of their net worth. In 2003, he was the victim of an armed attacker and was wounded in the head but survived.

His only studio album entitled “Excuse My French” (2013) was also very successful, and has sold more than 94,000 copies in the US, reaching the top position in US R&B and Rap charts and fourth position of US Billboard chart. The second album entitled “Mac & Cheese: The Album” was eventually released in 2015, and in the same year, French and pop-opera artist Charisse Mills successfully collaborated on for the single, “Champagne”, both of which also increased his net worth and popularity.
