French Montana was all the way up last night (Thursday, August 11) at his release party for his upcoming album MC4.
Partnering up with HOT 97 and Hornblower Cruises and Events, French welcomed his listeners aboard the Hornblower Infinity yacht. I got to the event at around 8:30 PM, and everyone was dressed up walking toward the yacht that was lit up. French definitely had everyone sailing in style on the three-floor boat. I felt like I was on a cruise ship sailing away for a whole week.
Inside, there was a HOT 97 backdrop for fans to take photos, several bars on the first and second floors, and of course a dance floor with DJ Kast One getting everybody doin’ the milly rock. French pulled up in all white and immediately took to his Snapchat to document his celebration.
It was a huge party with everyone having one or two… or three drinks dancing on the floor. You can see French pouring Ciroc into his cup with his crew who came to support. Other rappers who were in attendance were Canadian artist, Belly, and Brooklyn’s own, Desiigner.
With a perfect view of Manhattan’s skyline, the Infinity set sail on the Hudson River with nothing but hip-hop aboard. HOT 97’s morning hosts, Ebro Darden and Laura Stylez hyped the crowd up celebrating the night dedicated French’s upcoming album MC4. Desiigner came onstage for a surprise performance of his hits “Panda,” and “Timmy Turner.” French later joined him performing some of his past and current tracks such as his remix to Bobby Shurmda‘s “Hot N**a,” “Pop That,” the Drake-assisted “No Shopping,” and the current New York anthem with Remy Ma & Fat Joe, “All The Way Up.”
