Before we would be blessed with songs such as “Choppa Down” “Shot Caller” and “Pop That,” French Montana rolled heavy with another underground star we know as Max B. French talks about how Max’s influence and him being shot in the head helped to bring him to the point he is today.
He remembers that his life could have ended up very differently:
“My best friend (rapper Max B) is serving 75 years in prison,” he says. “Only one of us made it. I think about all this when I make music, of all the sacrifices made. Nothing is just going to come to you, you have to make it happen.” He also survived a gunshot wound to the head, a shooting that occurred en route to a Bronx studio. “I try not to bring that memory back. I’m glad I made it through that time, but, yeah, that experience was part of the album.” – USA Today
It would have been crazy to see Max B and French Montana make it together. I guess Max will rock out through French Montana’s success.
Hold Your Head Up Max B!
