Mawazine Rhythms of the World Festival kicked off on June 22 in Rabat, with a rich schedule hosting a cluster of world renowned artists including American-Moroccan rapper French Montana.
Following his concert on June 23, French Montana addressed the press on the matter and expressed his enthusiasm to be among the internationally renowned Moroccan artists. He also revealed his passion and admiration for the songs of the late Cheb Hasni, icon of the Raï, he used to listen to since childhood.
The wealthy rapper also went on to speak about his difficult childhood. French Montana, whose real name is Karim Kharbouch, was born in Rabat and grew up in Casablanca, before taking off at the age of 13, to the United States, in the Bronx district. And he came close to death in 2003 when he was shot in the head, as he explained before admitting that if he had to do it again, he would not change his past, his life and his status that made him ” the man he is today “.
Nicknamed the ” king of featurings, ” French Montana has collaborated with several famous rappers and singers, such as Drake, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj. His first commercial single “Pop That”, released in 2012, was one of the biggest hits that year having been certified “platinum” by the RIAA in just a few weeks.
