Bad Boy Records proudly announced yesterday the signing of hip-hop street sensation French Montana. After much speculation and buzz about where the Bronx rapper would call home, Montana has officially joined the Bad Boy/Interscope Records family. The highly anticipated announcement came during Bad Boy Records’ takeover of BET’s “106 & Park” where French appeared with his new label mates: Red CafÃ©, Cassie, and MGK.
In addition, Montana premiered the powerful video for “Shot Caller” featuring Charlie Rock, which was directed by French Montana and Morocco Vaughn. The single, which has been exploding on radio across the country, was produced by Harry Fraud and co-produced by Montana.
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.
