Montana of 300 is back with another fearless visual, this time teaming up with Talley of 300 and J Real for a remix of "Faneto." The track is the latest in a string of remix videos from the Chicago rapper. Remixes of Dej Loaf's "Try Me," Fetty Wap's "Trap Queen," OT Genasis' "Coco," and Nicki Minaj's "Chiraq" have each accumulated millions of YouTube views. Montana of 300 has two projects slated to release this year as well, including a collaborative effort with Talley of 300 scheduled for September and his solo project, Gunz & Roses, slated for the 4th quarter.
Montana and TO3 previously released their video for "Gas Mask," which premiered via The Smoking Section, with the duo mobbing out in a basement with an onslaught of aggressive, boastful bars. "I started rapping with Talley, literally," explains Montana of 300. "We both decided to write raps in class together during freshman year in high school. I've got money with bro, been broke with bro, and have been in life-threatening situations with him."
"We've heard quite a few rappers try their hand at Fetty Wap's buzzing single, 'Trap Queen,' but few have recreated the hook as faithfully as Montana Of 300," said HotNewHipHop of the remix. Passion of the Weiss also stated "Montana of 300 is the best new rapper," in a new feature spotlighting the artist. The FADER referred to his single "Ice Cream Truck," off his Cursed with A Blessing mixtape, as "a hittas anthem that's at once sweetly melodic and a true banger." With this momentum and over 35+ million YouTube views, Montana of 300 has proven time after time that he's more than just another Chicago rapper.
