French Montana fans are one step closer to viewing his autobiographical documentary, For Khadija. According to the rapper, the film, which was executive produced by Drake, is finally complete.

“It’s a real immigrant story, coming from Africa — I’m from Morocco — to the hip-hop culture in the Bronx and really just being in culture shock,” he said during his appearance on Hotboxin’ With Mike Tyson. “Not knowing English when I was 13 when I came and just taking it from there.”

French’s documentary is named in honor of his mother. “You know, she came out here and sacrificed for us,” he explained. “My father had left and she stayed, and she helped me become who I became, so I dedicated it to her.”

There’s no word on when For Khadija will be released. In the meantime, fans can listen to his new Coke Boys 6 mixtape. 

As previously reported, last week gunfire erupted and injured 10 people outside The Licking restaurant in Miami, where a crowd, including French, had gathered.

Based off initial reports that French was shooting a music video, Miami Gardens police Chief Delma Noel-Pratt blamed the rapper for failing to obtain permits for his video shoot, per TMZ. In a statement released after the incident, French denied he was filming a video at the time of the shooting. He claimed he was “celebrating the release of my CB6 mixtape w/ friends at a local restaurant.”
