When it comes to rappers who actually live the life they rap about, Gucci Mane is a name that crosses our minds. Even though for the people from The South have a good idea about this, French Montana from The Bronx learned about this the hard way.
Debra Antney, the woman well known to be responsible for helping break both Gucci Mane and French Montana, recently recalled how Mane lived up to what he is known for at Montana’s expense.
The conversation went down during The Drink Champs podcast. While talking to the host N.O.R.E., she recalled,
French didn’t really make it that well in Georgia, Gucci didn’t like French. Because the first time he went into the studio to do a song with him, he paid Gucci $5,000 to get on a feature. And he was just sitting in the studio and Gucci was gone out the backdoor. Gucci just took the money and left.
On the way to become almost a pioneer in Trap Music, Gucci Mane became well known in the streets of Atlanta.
Debra recalls how she managed to broker a deal with Jimmy Henchmen in order to ensure Gucci’s smooth entry into the music industry. She felt responsible for Gucci and had to ease things up with French.
I just gave French the $5,000
Debra then placed the rapper under the care of her son Waka Flocka Flame. Wild stuff.
