French Montana revealed to XXL Magazine that he was asked to join Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group, but explained that he’s still at a point where he’s working on his own movement.
“He [Rick Ross] asked me to join MMG, so I’m definitely entertaining the idea. I definitely got a lot of respect for his movement, you know what I’m saying? [However] right now, I’m just trying to figure out everything with myself, with my own entity, and my own movement,” French Montana explained. “Then I’ma figure out everything else ’cause there was a lot of things I had to fall back off for me to get my situation straight.”

I’m just staying busy, making a lot of music, and staying relevant, that’s all it is,” said French Montana. “It’s just staying persistent. I don’t really get into the politics, because at the end of the day everybody don’t want me to win. I just stay away from all that and stay working on my music and everything that I got to do.”
French Montana also spoke on his collaboration with Mase and how he was able to recruit the usually low-key rapper for the “New York Minute” remix.
“He just hit me out of nowhere one day. I looked at the phone like, ‘Am I bugging?’ Yeah, I was just laughing. Me and him kicked it, man,” said the rapper. “He cool as hell. He loved that ‘New York Minute’ record so, he just jumped on it for me. I made a lot of history, man.”
