French Montana's fourth studio album, They Got Amnesia, was largely recorded in a $650,000 recording studio at his $5 million estate, according to Season 4 of Selling Sunset. Montana bought the home in 2016 for $3.3 million from Selena Gomez before adding the studio, and the five-bed, six-bath Mediterranean house feels like a succinct metaphor for his career: stand next to someone famous, add onto what they’ve already done and spend a bit of money. Perhaps a lot of money will turn into a little bit more money.
French Montana has been through a lot. A 2003 shooting left the rapper at death's door, and that brush with the ever-lasting has formed the backdrop of his subsequent success. New album 'They Got Amnesia' is perhaps his most open and autobiographical statement, a product of a turbulent two years, lockdown introspection, and - perhaps - a long-standing desire to truly express himself.
