This summer has been hot for French Montana. In addition to his single, “Unforgettable” featuring Swae Lee, taking over the airwaves and the clubs, he also released his second studio album Jungle Rules as well as launching his own flavor of Ciroc “French Vanilla.”  He also donated a large sum of money to the Mama Hope organization to help woman and children in Uganda. So while the Bronx rapper has been out hear collecting dubs, his efforts haven’t gone unnoticed.

Today, French Montana took to Instagram to share that he covered Paper Magazine’s August issue. It’s a solid step forward for him that he has undoubtedly deserve to have. On his Instagram post, the caption reads “Check me out on the cover of @papermagazine shot it in the only Blue City in the world 🌎 in Morocco. Chefchaouene the “blue pearl of Morocco.” I thought it was fake till I got there, and seen it with my own eyes ! Yes every house is blue.. the whole town is blue. Shout out to North Africa 🙌 where we also shot the #Famous vid… comin soon 👀 #junglerules”

French went to Morocco with Eric T. White to shoot the cover in Chefchaouene, also known as the blue pearl of Morocco. French sits in front of a blue back drop with a blue scarf over his head. He also revealed on Instagram that he shot a new video in the North African country. The story itself covers a lot of ground, including his relationship with the Kardashian clan as a whole, his come up in the rap game, how his name came to be and more. 

French Montana has had an interesting come-up in the rap game. While he’s still regarded as a “newer” rapper, he’s been hustling for music well before Soundcloud became a main platform for rappers to get their name out. His cover story with PAPER Magazine highlights a lot of factors people either don’t know or don’t bring up on the Bronx rapper. The story captures French Montana away from his celebrity and digs deep into his history as not only a rapper, but as a person.
