Friday, Oct 5, 2012 11:07AM
Bad Boy Records' French Montana recently revealed what he dropped big stacks on after really making it rich as a hip-hop star back in 2011.
According to Montana, he threw his paper down on a luxury whip in Tampa, Florida.
What was the first thing you bought when you got rich? A [Rolls-Royce] Ghost. How much did it cost? A quarter-million dollars. I had too much money. [Laughs.] I always had money, but I didn't have the money for me to wake up and be like,"'Look, I'm gonna buy it and not care, and not even drive it." I've had that car for about a year and probably ain't even put 1,000 miles on it. When did you buy it? About a year ago. Where did you buy it? I bought it in Tampa at the Rolls-Royce dealership.

Last month, Montana revealed some details on his upcoming Excuse My French debut.
That's not all: French also got his Bad Boy boss Diddy to contribute the long player's intro. Even former Bad Boy recording artist and sometimes-minster Ma$e joined in on the action. "He just blessed the album. I needed his blessings on the album," French said, laughing. For his first major-label shot, French wanted to do the unexpected. "Everybody expects the single to be me, Wayne, Ross," he said, noting that he does have collaborations with them, but other stuff in store as well. "I just want to do something different for my next joint." (MTV)
Addtional guest features include hip-hop heavyweights Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Drake and more.
French Montana is gearing up to the release of his debut album, Excuse My French. Originally slated to drop this summer, the LP arriving via Bad Boy Records/MMG is now completed according to the Bronx rapper. Supported by the single "Pop That" with Drake, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross, French revealed on MTV's RapFix Live that both Ross and Weezy return for a second time on a song titled "Marble Floors." You can expect a classic 'No Way Out' Diddy on the album's intro, along with previously confirmed appearances from Wiz Khalifa and Wale. (Miss Info TV)
Montana has kept hot, recentlyheating up the summer with his "Pop That" music video.
When Drake, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and French Montana throw a pool party for a music video, two things are definitely going to be involved. There's bound to be a bevy of scantily clad women (the song is called "Pop That," after all) and more than enough product placement. Each of them has their products to push: Rozay rides hard for Ciroc, Lil Wayne drops a horribly unsubtle reference to his clothing line, TRUKFIT, and someone is seen smoking a hookah that's made from a bottle of Moet.
