Bad Boy and Maybach Music’s Newest Superstar Makes No Excuses

French Montana

You outwork, out-hustle, out-rap, do whatever. You just go hard.

It’s not often you’ll find two hip-hop power players willing to settle for half of anything. When it comes to rapper French Montana, born Karim Kharbouch, that’s exactly the case.

He's inked a joint deal with Sean Combs’ Bad Boy Records and Rick Ross’s Maybach Music Group. With his just released debut ‘Excuse My French,’ Montana felt it was the best way to make sure everyone knew that he was committed to the two industry heavyweights that were most committed to him. “It was important for me to sign a joint venture because both of those people looked out for me when I was coming up. And in dealing with somebody like Puff and Ross, I feel like I can’t go wrong. They’ll be able to hold me down.”

During the interview with rolling out’s New York-based music editor Todd Williams, French Montana addresses the dating Trina and absentee father rumors, and what it’s like to live in a third world country.
