“Everybody’s getting put to tests about one thing and one thing only: Was you saving money when you was rapping?” French Montana told the outlet. “Did you build the capital? Did you build a retirement plan? Since I been working, I always would spend and I would save. I always dreamed about a beautiful exit one day. I always save money for a rainy day. You don’t see things like this coming, so there’s a lot of artists out there that live check to check. It’s gonna be a lotta garage auctions, I’ll tell you that much.”
Aside from the COVID-19 quarantine talk, French Montana also shared that he has a documentary in the works that highlights his life, beginning with his move from Africa to New York when he was 13-years-old to the successful career he’s built today. Let us know if you agree with him about his comments on rappers’ spending.
