French Montana’s Big Time Guide to Picking Up Chicks
Moroccan-raised South Bronx, N.Y., transplant French Montana has been married since 2007, so when he spoke with The BoomBox last week, we were planning to ask the recent Bad Boy signee to help us pen a "Married Man's Guide to Picking Up Chicks." Sadly for everyone involved, he informed us that his marriage had dissolved earlier this year.
Instead, we rode a different wave with the "Pop That" creator, whose poor enunciation has earned him a Twitter mention approximately every 30 seconds according to the New York Times. The end result is "The Big Time Guide to Picking Up Chicks," which offers you simps crucial game theory for the club, the strip club and everywhere in between.
