Bad Boy Records has signed hip-hop street sensation French Montana. Congrats to the label and to the Bronx rapper.
Montana has officially joined the Bad Boy/Interscope Records family.
Said Montana: "Signing with Bad Boy was more than just taking the best deal. I wanted to do this for New York rap, and who better than Diddy to help me bring New York rap back."
"When I saw what French Montana was doing, I knew we had to sign him. He is a gifted and special artist that continues to push the New York sound that I started Bad Boy on. It was only right we made the deal happen here," said Diddy, the HNIC of Bad Boy.
"Being a great artist is one thing, but being a great person is priceless," says the President of Bad Boy, Harve Pierre. "It wasn't just about the music and movement; it was about French Montana the person. I signed French to Bad Boy/Interscope because I believe in him as an artist and want to help him achieve his dream."
Steadily supplying the streets with mix tapes since 2007 (as well as singles such as "Choppa Choppa Down" featuring Rick Ross), Montana will continue to feed his growing legion of fans with groundbreaking new music--including club bangin' collaborations with Three 6 Mafia and Waka Flocka Flame. French is currently in the studio working on a new mix tape and finishing work on his upcoming Bad Boy/Interscope album debut, Excuse My French, scheduled for release in summer 2012.
