Cocaine City Records|In 2002 French Montana created the “Cocaine City” DVD imprint as a means to showcase his talent as an underground artist and a new voice from the New York streets. To gain a broader fan base, French incorporated interviews with major artists, as well as some up and comers. What started out as simply a medium for developing an audience quickly grew into one of the top selling “street DVD’s”, having sold nearly a million copies to date with national and international distribution.
The international success of the DVD series helped to launch French’s rap career to an entirely new level. By creating and producing “Cocaine City,” French Montana evolved from an aspiring rapper in the streets of the Bronx, to the newest signee on platinum selling recording artist Akon’s record label, Konvict Music. By early 2009, French had flooded the streets with various mixtapes, including “Live from Africa,” “In Demand” with DJ Lazy K and “Laundry Man” with Evil Empire. His frequent collaborations with Harlem-bred rapper Max B have also helped keep a steady buzz, and helped fuel the success of the duo’s latest project, the mixtape/DVD combo “Coke Wave.” All together there have been 13 Cocaine City DVDs as of 2009.
Konvict Muzik|In 2009 French signed a 50/50 deal to Akon’s Konvict Muzik.
