The new French Montana documentary, For Khadija, tells the story of the rapper’s rise to superstardom and features interviews with Drake and Fat Joe.
The film explains how French made the journey from Morocco to The Bronx as a teenager before embarking upon a highly successful music career. In the trailer, his contemporaries discuss his impact on the industry, including Drake, who also served as the executive producer on For Khadija. Diddy is also in the same role as Drizzy on the project.
French previously discussed the film during an interview on Apple Music. He said: “Well, this documentary just tells my immigrant story basically, and all the people that followed me from the day that I started till now,” he said. “I feel like a lot of people know me, but a lot of people just know me by the music. A lot of people know me from me dating people. It could be this, it could be that, but I want people to know me for the right reasons and I feel like this documentary just is more based on the struggle.
“We was on welfare, to me getting shot, to me meeting Chinx, me meeting Max B. Max B be getting 75 years in jail. It’s the whole thing. It’s the whole enchilada. Me being almost blackballed after he went to jail. Me just going through all the obstacles.”
The rapper continued: “Shout out to Drake for helping me do it. Shout out to Puff. Shout out to Max B for letting them cameras come inside that maximum security prison and helping me document it.”
