Before dropping his worldwide hit “Unforgettable” or his latest album, Jungle Rules, French Montana needed another kind of inspiration for his music.
French had lost the people who motivated him the most. Chinx isn’t by his side anymore (RIP) and Max B is still serving time in jail.
French’s “spirit for the music was gone” but his lost spirit forced him to find peace through helping those who needed it most.
In his recent documentary, Project Unforgettable: “My Project, Their Reality”, French explains how Triplets Ghetto Kids and the country of Uganda rekindled his musical spirit.
Peep, Project Unforgettable: “My Project, Their Reality”
During the first couple minutes of the beautiful documentary, French says,
“I needed something that was gon’ bring me back to life, and when I saw these kids, it kind of blew life into my lungs. I kind of just felt like I wanted to do music again, you know?”
The 30-minute doc is an incredible experience as you get to see Uganda from French’s perspective. Watch as prophet Montana strolls the streets like royalty to the tune of trumpets and changes the realities of many.
Putting the Triplets Ghetto Kids in the “Unforgettable” video is probably the best thing that has ever happened to them. The smiles on their faces prove it. The doc follows them from the slums of Kampala, Uganda to LA to perform with French at the BET Awards.
Since his return from Uganda, French has been able to help the country in so many ways.
During his visit, French met with the community-building Suubi Health Centre, this inspired a partnership with Mama Hope and Global Citizen to launch a global healthcare campaign.
#UNFORGETTABLE helps to raise funds for the Suubi “Hope” Health Centre. So far the campaign has raised nearly $400,000 to complete construction on the maternity clinic.
The donations have been used to construct staff quarters and an extension. By building this extension, the healthcare services will be able to reach 286,000 people.
