American rapper of Moroccan origins French Montana appeared in a video with Moroccan-Swedish songwriter and record executive, Nadir Khayat, better known as RedOne, while shooting the rapper’s new music video on a rooftop in Tetouan city.
On Snapchat, French Montana shared the view with his followers, and it includes a sight of a crowd surrounding the building on which the rapper commented « Trapped on the building, a lot of love » followed by « Morocco we love you too ».
The second video featured a track in the background by Algerian singer, Cheb Hasni to which French Montana is seen mumbling along to.
In related news, French Montana, released a video clip earlier this week in Uganda, titled “Unforgettable,” with an original cover featuring a wedding picture of his parents in Morocco.
The picture of my mother and father at their wedding in Africa is my favorite picture. It’s unforgettable for so many reasons since it was the same year I was born and the same year my father was incarcerated for unfortunate circumstances. He named me from jail. After he was released, we were granted US visas and in 1996 I went on my first plane to go to America. I didn’t know any English. It was tough because I thought we were moving into the high rises of NYC, but we ended up in the back streets of the South Bronx lol. It was still better than back home in Morocco, but my father had a hard time and wanted to move back. My mother knew we couldn’t because there weren’t any opportunities there and she sacrificed a lot for us to survive in the states. We were on welfare and she worked overtime to keep us fed, clothed and a roof over our heads. I promised my mother that I would hustle and make my accomplishments unforgettable once I found my opportunity. I want other people who might be struggling to know that the sky is not the limit… You can do unforgettable things, so I present to you my single "Unforgettable". Feat @swaelee
