New York rapper French Montana isn’t slowing down and keeping the attention on his upcoming “She Make It Clap” remix with self-proclaimed rap pioneer Soulja Boy. The hip-hop heavyweight has hit up social media with a sneak peek presumably from their music video.
Montana hit up his Instagram page with a slideshow of pics. While he didn’t specific in the caption, it’s clear this is a sneak peek at his and Soulja Boy’s upcoming “She Make It Clap” remix music video. From Montana’s doing a clapping gesture in the pic to chilling alongside SB, this has all the makings of a pre-drop teaser.
“get out your feelings ain’t no money there”
A few days ago, footage surfaced of Soulja Boy and Montana hanging outside together.
French Montana Checks Kim K + La La
In June 2021, Montana went to his Instagram page with some epic footage of himself in a recording studio with Big Draco. The bars directly referenced reality TV star Kim Kardashian‘s publicized divorce from rap star Kanye West, the Brooklyn Nets’ Kyrie Irving and James Harden – who allegedly paid $100,000 for a Saweetie date – and La La filing for divorce from NBA star Carmelo Anthony.
“Lost a bag on Kyrie, gotta back like Travis did Kylie/She made it clap for the ‘ah, ah,’ shorty did the split like La La/Did the split like Kim K, gotta for the half like MJ/AP ain’t hitting in the light/It was fake like the Mayweather fight/Montana been spitting that ether, before Rakim was kicking that speaker/Keep a hundred, I’m ballin’/But I ain’t paying a hundred like Harden/Make it clap like Chloe, not my ex, Khloe, that Chloe with Beyoncé”
French Montana’s Dropped The NY Anthem Of ’21
After mounted anticipation and hype, Montana recently delivered his jaw-dropping “FWMGAB” visual. The video put full attention on some of the Big Apple’s most iconic spots from Yankee Stadium to the Empire State Building and iconic State of Liberty – all spots Montana is actually shown rapping around or on top of – literally.
Flipping the horns from Omar Alfanno’s “Amores Como el Nuestro” into a classic New York summer anthem, “FWMGAB” (which stands for “F*ck Wit Me Get A Bag”) showcases French Montana as his best. The rap superstar unloads energetic bar after bar over a head-nodding beat, bringing back the braggadocio tenfold, boasting “fuck wit me, get a bag.” In the accompanying visual directed by Edgar Esteves [Lil Baby, Roddy Ricch], he makes a homecoming to The Bronx at Mott Haven Houses, welcomed by almost the entire hood. Matching the song’s raw and high energy, folks bust a move and sing along as French holds court before rapping atop Lady Liberty. It’s New York through-and-through.
The music video is much more than just a fire visual. French is gearing up to drop a new album before the fall season arrives.
“FWMGAB” paves the way for his anxiously awaited fourth full-length album, set to arrive this summer. For the record, French fully embraces his roots, showcasing a verbal dexterity and unpredictable flows that established him as a star in the first place. As such, he assembled a formidable body of work, illuminating his diverse musicality and indisputable knack for a banger, without forgetting where he came from.
The same week, Bad Boy Records boss Diddy promised French had the single of the year.
Drake + French Have New Music Brewing
OVO Sound boss Drake and Montana recently gave fans a massive teaser. The hip-hop pair hinted at plans to possibly drop some serious new tunes. Frenchie went to his Instagram page with a must-like shot. The pic featured both himself and Drake chilling next to each other with a little foreshadowing.
