French Montana

Although last year saw French Montana walk away from a deal with Akon's Konvict Muzic after lingering on the label since 2009, the Bronx rapper bounced back, inking a new deal with Diddy's Bad Boy Records by the close of 2011, after a rumored bidding war between Rick Ross' Maybach Music Group and Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music.
