While it was a badly kept “secret” and pretty much confirmed here, French Montana is now the new member of Bad Boy Records. Following much speculation of joining the likes of Kanye West at G.O.O.D. Music and Rick Ross at Maybach Music Group, Diddy announced his new signee tonight on BET’s 106 & Park. Meanwhile, French world premiered his video for “Shot Caller” featuring Charlie Rock, which you can watch above.

French on aligning with Puff:

“I really feel real good that’s why I kept it here in New York. Why would I take my talent to South Beach? When I met with Puff and sat down and really spoke, he told me a couple of things and [he] never lied to me about nothing and always kept his word. It is what it is. It’s New York. I want to bring it back to New York.”
