French Montana showing love to where he's from.
French Montana is all about his upbringings and where he's from so being the face of the four GQ Middle East magazine covers is a major milestone for the "Unforgettable" rapper. The photos were shot in United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, and French's home stomping grounds of Morocco. The cover is all about promoting peace for the middle east and the We Are The Dream campaign designed to help undocumented teens in the U.S. get a proper education.
“Immigration means everything to me. It means hope, it means faith, it means a voice for the people that come from different places and build a country,” he told the publication.
“Being a kid from Morocco, from Casablanca, and going to the States when I was 13 not knowing English, and all we had was hope. Me being a Muslim kid and now I’m on the cover of GQ Middle East,” French added in a short video to accompany the spread. “I feel like it’s something you can only dream about. Especially starting from the bottom with no help and being self-made and making it, it’s just something that shows the next world leader that comes from the Middle East that they can make it happen.”
