French Montana blows through Vancouver [Review]
Vancouver, BC – This past weekend French Montana made a quick stop in Vancouver on the beginning leg of his Set It Off Tour. While half of the tour features R&B crooner Jeremih, Vancity unfortunately wasn’t included as part his agenda.
Local act Autokrat held her own opening the show just fine though with partner-in-crime freedrxgs and they definitely got the crowd hyped and ready for the headlining act. In between performances, Sailor Gerry and Dkay kept the attention of the crowd in-check while Cashius Clay made the most of his hosting duties.
After what felt like hours later French Montana finally stepped on-stage around 1 a.m to a full house of mostly D-boys and a surprisingly balanced female to male crowd. They chanted every lyric to tracks like “Ain’t Worried ‘Bout Nothin'” “Don’t Panic” and “Ocho Cinco” while French donned his classic laid-back demeanour in all black with a heavily gold laced neckline.
He dropped his featured verses from tracks like “Mula” and “Work (Remix)” and in just over 30 minutes he vanished off stage. The crowd staggered around surely confused by the abruptness of his exit but after the lights began to brighten it was clear that French needs no time at all to make his mark. Despite the length of French’s set it was another successfully turned up event at Harbour Events Centre.
