The Marocco-born rapper, who just released the brand new mixtape “Coke Boys 6: Money Heist Edition” last week, introduced the movie project on an episode of the podcast “Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson.”
“It’s called ‘For Khadija’, that’s for my mother,” Montana told boxing legend Mike Tyson. “You know she came out here and sacrificed for us. My father had left and she stayed, and she helped me become who I became, so I dedicated it to her. Drake is executive producing it.”
He went on to share that the documentary would depict “a real immigrant story.” Montana, whose real name is Karim Kharbouch, was born in Morocco in the famous city of Casablanca. He immigrated to the Bronx when he was 13 years old and at the time, couldn’t speak any English.
Montana would set the wheels for his career in motion in the late 2000s by passing out DVDs of his early mixtapes in the streets. It wasn’t until 2012 when Montana secured his first label deal, releasing his debut studio LP “Excuse My French” the following year.
Last Friday (January 6), Montana delivered the sixth installment of his “Coke Boys” series. The project is hosted by DJ Drama and comes with 29 tracks and features from A$AP Rocky, Benny The Butcher, EST Gee, Nav, Kodak Black and Max B. On January 8, he released the video to “The Oath,” which is on the album and features a posthumous verse from Chinx.
