French Montana pulled up to Pier 40 on a stunning yacht to celebrate the upcoming release of his new album, MC4. In partnership with Hot 97 and Hornblower Cruises & Events, New York City patrons set sail on the Hudson River on Thursday (Aug. 11), for a night of spirits and hype tunes.
In attendance were rappers Belly and Desiigner, who took center stage shirtless to give an impromptu performance of his hits “Panda” and the crazed “Timmy Turner.”
With Manhattan’s alluring skyline as the backdrop, French felt like a hometown hero inside the three-leveled Infinity yacht, witnessing the crowd’s reactions to his past and current tracks like “Pop That,” his remix to Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot Ni**a,” and the Drake-assisted “No Shopping.”
