Bronx native French Montana is one of the hottest, if not the hottest new rappers in NYC. The newly signed Bad Boy Records recording artist is now letting his fans make the decision of choosing his singles. French recently talked to about the way he picks his singles.

I think it’s because the way I do my thing now,” said French. “I changed my format. I don’t pick songs no more. I put out a mixtape [and] the most requested song, I go with that one.

The story of that beat, I had did that for Funkmaster Flex,” French said. “I always liked that record [‘Funky Child’ by Lords of the Underground.]. The part that was catchy to me was the horns on the ‘Funky Child’ record. I went to my producer, Harry Fraud. He sat on it, he didn’t want to do it. But I came in the studio one day and made him do it. Then Charlie Rock was just there while we was making the beat, then he kept coming out with that melody on the chorus of ‘Shot Caller.’  Then I said,  ‘you need to go in there and do that.’ The song started playing in the strip clubs and took off from there,” added French
