The Moroccan-born artist burst onto the scene with his debut 2013 album release Excuse My French, which reached No. 4 on the Billboard 200. He has since earned a hattrick of Grammy nominations for his works “All Day” (best rap song) and “All The Way Up” (best rap song, best rap performance).

Montana is coming off a performance at the BET Awards this past weekend, a prelude to his guest slot on select dates for phase two of The Weeknd’s Legend of the Fall World Tour (the Canadian headliner is also a WME client).
