Immigration means everything to me, says French Montana
Hip-hop artist French Montana wants people across the world to embrace immigration and give due importance to health care.
Montana left Morocco with his parents and younger brother for New York City when he was 13. This summer, he became a US citizen.
The singer, who’s on GQ magazine’s Middle East cover, wears his immigrant status on his sleeve and is vocal about immigration and health care, reports tmz.com.
“Immigration means everything to me. It means hope, it means faith, it means a voice for the people that come from different places and build a country,” he says.
On his stance on health care, he adds that it should be a right and not a privilege. Montana also helped raise $500,000 to build a hospital in Uganda, East Africa.
