French Montana Becomes A United States Citizen

Shoutout to French Montana! The recording artist became a United States citizen on Wednesday (June 13), TMZ is reporting. 

"French got sworn in Wednesday morning in New Jersey," the news outlet reports. "We're told getting his citizenship was a long process ... he applied in February of 2017. In order to become a citizen you have to take the Naturalization Oath of Allegiance and, from the looks of it ... French nailed it."

The rapper was born in the North African country of Morocco. He would move to Bronx, New York with his family when he was 13 years old. Early this year, Montana actually released his "Famous" music video that was shot in his motherland. The lyrics referenced that Morocco will always be near and dear to his heart. "'Cause everyone will love you but won't love you like the way I do, oh nah/ Hope you don't get famous," Montana rap-sang. "Stay home with me/ Stay home with me/ I'll always love ya, I'll always/ Hope you don't get/ Hope you don't get famous."

Now that Montana is a U.S. citizen, he will be able to get an American passport and vote in the 2020 presidential election. “Officially a citizen today thank u allah,” the recording artist captioned a video in his IG story. Check that out below. He later turned up at the club that night to celebrate his big achievement.
