What a transformation!
French Montana took the time everyone was taking to social distance this year to get his health straight and now the rapper is out here giving Sober Zaddy vibes as he reveals a brand new body along with a new chapter in life for XXL.
We haven’t heard much from French in 2020 and it was done intentionally. The rapper reveals he decided to change his life after waking up in the ICU in Los Angeles after his birthday party in November 2019.
I was in icu last year this time ! Life punched me in my face lol. FAST FORWARD A YEAR LATER….
GOD IS THE GREATEST THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SUPPORT!! WHAT A WAY TO CLOSE OUT THE YEAR !
The 35-year-old “Unforgettable” rapper shares that he is has turned a brand new leaf leading into the new year. The 36-years-old, French confessed to XXL that he would take Adderall when he wanted to stay up and Percocets for pain relief, which then became a “hobby” for him. The dangerous habit turned into an addiction. “I feel like 90 percent of musicians on that,” he shares. “It was just overdoing something for too long. And, to the point where now sober is becoming my new high.”
The Moroccan-American rapper is now focused on releasing a new documentary that will detail his journey leaving Africa at 13 years old to come to the mecca of hip-hop, the Bronx, in search of a better life for him and his family. The story will take a look into French’s upbringing, coming up during the height of Max B, his first record deal, and more.
“It’s a life-changing story to every immigrant out there that, you know, have a hope or feel like the picture is too big to paint to it, you know what I’m saying, to fit them shoes…” French said of the new documentary. “It just makes you take that extra step if you, you know what I’m saying, if you in the same shoes. ’Cause I did it with no papers, I did it, you know, if I woulda got caught taking chances, I woulda got deported and then that woulda been a slap in my mother face ’cause she sacrificed…”
French turned his whole life around!
