The Bad Boy imprint just got stronger. Yesterday (December 8) Diddy and South Bronx native French Montana appeared on BET’s 106 & Park to announce the deal to the masses. Sporting a  fur vest and four glittering chains, the 27-year old rapper explained why he turned down offers from  Maybach Music and chose the New York based Bad Boy Records.

“Man, I really feel real, real, real good, how New York feel right now, you know,” he explained. “That’s why I kept it here in New York. I ain’t wanna go nowhere else. Why would I take my talent to South Beach.” “He (Diddy) told me a couple things and never really like, lied to be about nothin’, like really just kept his word about everything he tried to do,”. French Montana

When Rosci asked the Bad Boy CEO about  the move signing French months after signing Machine Gun Kelly Diddy stated – “It’s obvious”. “His work ethic, his song-making, the effect he has on the youngins. If you ever been to one of his shows, every time he drops a record. Also, it’s important, I’m from New York, you know what I’m saying. I rep New York to the fullest.  And for real, for real, can’t nothing move in this city without us being a part of it.”

French Montana rose to street fame quickly over the past few years. Gaining great recognition  for his tracks “Choppa Choppa Down”  as well as collaborations with Fat Joe on “Welcome to the Dark Side” and Waka Flocka Flame on “Hell on Earth 2K11”   After the big news the new duo debuted visuals for “Shot Caller”, featuring cameos from N.O.R.E.,Busta Rhymes, DJ Camilo, Waka Flocka, Diddy and Fat Joe. Watch the Video below:
