If you’re not already familiar with French Montana, you will be soon: the Moroccan-born, Bronx-repping rapper recently recruited one of your favorite VH1 stars for his next music video, which will shoot next week in New York City. Having not yet been introduced in person, Mob Wives’ star Drita D’avanzo has been tweeting back and forth with Montana for about a week, expressing her excitement to be involved in bringing the visual for his song “Everything’s A Go” to life, a potential single that she’s already partial to.
And why wouldn’t Drita be excited? After being courted by Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group and Kanye West’s GOOD Music imprint, French Montana chose to ride out with Diddy and the good folks at Bad Boy Records/Interscope, making his already growing street buzz even more audible. Earlier this week, we caught up with the recently signed “Coke Boy” rapper to find out how this incredible collaboration came to fruition.
Still high off of being selected for XXL’s annual Freshman Class cover (an accolade coveted by many up-and-coming artists in hip hop), Montana, like Drita, proved to be uniquely entertaining in his own right. After revealing the bank-robbery theme of the video to us – his concept! – French went on to explain why Drita’s the perfect “gangsta chick” to join him in the caper that, coincidentally, ends at the strip club. You’ll see in the footage that he goes into much more detail about the video, but what you won’t see is when Montana called the Mob Wives lady-goon “sexy,” got flustered, and accidentally kicked over his water bottle. Could a romantic connection be brewing here, or just a friendship between like-minded bandits? We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled at the video shoot, and will be sure to keep you in the loop!
