French Montana

After years of putting in major ground work on the mixtape and DVD circuits, 2012 has certainly been French Montana's year. Appearing on just about every club anthem in the past 12 months, the Bad Boy recording artist also landed a few hits of his own including "Shot Caller" and "Pop That." As he gears up for the release of his debut, Excuse My French, 2013 could be a massive after-party for French's 2012 coming out party. (photo: John Ricard / BET)
