Kanye West, Nas, and French Montana get fly in the desert for “Figure It Out.” The long-awaited music video for their collaboration, which was shot sometime back in March, has finally landed for viewing pleasure.
The rappers hit the Mojave Air & Space Port in California in the Eif Rivera-directed clip, which is filled with airplanes, stunt bikes, and a Rolls-Royce. While sand creates a smoky backdrop, Esco, Yeezy, and French deliver bars about what they can’t quite figure out.
This marks the first time the Wave Gods mixtape cut is commercially available for purchase and it comes out as Montana celebrates big news. On Thursday (May 5), he continued his longstanding bond with Diddy by signing to Bad Boy’s new Epic Records imprint.
“French Montana is a proven hitmaker,” said Puff. “When I first heard him, I knew he had that special Bad Boy sound and I believed in his potential. He was on the fast track then, and now, to see how far he’s come, he’s a major force in hip-hop and a key member of the Bad Boy family. Bad Boy is known for creating the biggest acts in hip-hop—and French is not only a part of our legacy but now also a part of our new chapter at Epic Records.”
L.A. Reid, Epic’s chairman and CEO, agrees. “Anyone who has paid attention to the course of hip-hop over the past decade has found French Montana consistently at the eye of the storm,” said Reid. “French has now become one of hip-hop’s core artists himself, and I’m happy to welcome him to the Epic family.”
