French Montana Joins Niners 365 Podcast

Posted Sep 10, 2013

Bad Boy Records hip hop artist French Montana joins the debut episode of our Niners 365 podcast.

French Montana has a perfect name for a 49ers fan.

The New York-based rapper continues to rep his favorite football team on the East Coast. Even on tour, Montana was able to follow San Francisco’s Week 1 win over the Green Bay Packers.

Montana recently took time from the road to speak to our Niners 365 podcast.

“I’m a fan of Colin, I’m a fan of everybody,” said Montana, the creator of the kick-off song currently being used at Candlestick Park.

Montana’s “Ain’t worried about nothin” has been a popular song among the players in the 49ers locker room.

The South Bronx rapper feels like it fits the current state of his favorite team.

“As a rapper, I’m not worried about nothin and I felt like they were coming off the same energy,” said the Bad Boy recording artist. “They’re not worried about nothin, they’re going to go all the way with it.

“It’s an anthem. It’s an anthem for people with their backs against the wall. If people are talking about you and you have a lot of ambition, it’s a song for people who have a lot to prove.”

Montana has no doubt in his mind the 49ers will make an appearance in Super Bowl XLVIII, set to take place in New Jersey, just outside his home state of New York.

But first, Montana would like to join the recent trend of hip hop artists to perform the 49ers kick-off song at Candlestick Park. In 2011, it was Future who performed, “Tony Montana.” In 2012, the honor went to 2 Chainz for his song, “Riot.”

Montana would also like to perform with the Bay Area rap legend on his 49ers remix, E-40.

“That’s a dream come true and definitely with E-40 being there,” Montana said. “That’s kind of big for me.”

For now, Montana takes pride in knowing that the 49ers are loving his new song.

“It’s a dream come true,” he said.
