This Moroccan-American hip hop recording artist is better known under his scaffold name French Montana. French Montana or Karim Kharbouch was born on November 9, 1984.

French Montana had released his mixtape debut in 2002 which he titled as “Cocaine City”. This turned out to be a serious hit amongst varied age groups. His major breakthrough “Choppa Choppa Down” in 2010 earned him some fame and a whole slew of money that came along with it. He made his studio album debut Excuse My French in 2013. The major part of Montana’s success can be advocated his die-hard determination. He didn’t just make or release his tapes, but he also took ingenuity to sell his tapes on the streets. He designed DVDs out of them and along with other interview cassettes, began to tread slowly towards his destiny.
His trek to stardom reached its peak once he was signed by Bad Boy Records and Interscope in 2011. Besides these noteworthy collaborations, he has also had the pleasure of working with other fellow artists like Rick Ross, Charlie Rock, Max B, Flip, and Cheeze.

It’s his sincerity and dedication that ultimately paved the way to what or who he is today. He has received several accolades like the BET Hip-Hop Award for Best Club Banger in 2013.
