Karim Kharbouch was born and grew up partly in Morocco. In 1996, his whole family moved to New York City. At that time, he did not know how to speak English. Even without knowing English, this did not stop him from learning his passion, which is rapping.
Kharbouch’s love for rap music began at an early age. In fact, Karim’s screen name “French Montana” indicates that he has a Moroccan origin. The last name “Montana” was borrowed from the character of Tony Montana from the movie “Scarface,” wherein Al Pacino played as the leading actor.
After a decade, through dedication and perseverance, French Montana has made a name in the rap music industry. His music career was launched in 2002 with a couple of mix-tapes under “Cocaine City.” It featured interviews with unsigned and veteran musical artists.
In 2009, French Montana was also connected with Akon’s Konvict Muzik. However, he only stayed for two years under Akon as he was able to maneuver through the industry and land at Diddy’s Bad Boy Records. He has also worked with Maybach Music Group and has worked on many collaboration with other musical artists like Chinx Drugz, Flip, Cheeze, Max B, Charlie Rock, and Rick Ross.
French Montana has a son with Deen Kharbouch, but the relationship ended. The two divorced in 2012.
His first ever studio album, “Excuse My French,” was released in 2013. French Montana released his second album in 2014, and it was called “Mac & Cheese.”
There were rumors that he was going out with Khloe Kardashian in April 2014, but the two broke up in September of the same year. There were also reports that he dated model and rapper Trina. Basically the dude does his thing in the industry. He gets money and women.
French Montana then released the mix-tape “Casino Life 2: A Brown Bag Legend,” which featured the hit single “Moses” where he collaborated with Migos and Chris Brown.
Among the awards that he received was Best Club Banger on BET Hip-Hop in 2013 for “Pop That.” French Montana was also nominated for Best in Mix-tape for his song “Wave Gods” in 2016. He was again nominated for Best Rap Performance in the Grammy award this year, and “All the Way Up” was also nominated as the best rap song (french was featured).
French Montana has a net worth of $8 million. His earnings mostly come from his shows and album sales and endorsements (Ciroc). One of his albums has even surpassed the $1 million mark. Released in 2013, the album was called “Excuse My French.”
