French Montana began his philanthropic journey after a trip to Uganda in March 2017. After a couple of personal setbacks, he admittedly lost the motivation to make music and was looking for something to fill the void. He unexpectedly found it in the hearts and spirits of the Ugandan people while shooting the video for “Unforgettable” with Swae Lee.

Ahead of DIRECTV’s premiere of Montana’s concert series performance, the Coke Boys founder opened up about his life-changing experience in an interview with host Ted Stryker.

“I lost two of my best friends [Max B and the late Chinx],” Montana says in the clip. “One got incarcerated and the other passed away. I kinda lost all the love for music ’cause the people that used to motivate me, they wasn’t there no more. When I went to Uganda, I was looking for some motivations and just saw how happy the people is in Uganda with probably not even a quarter of what we have here. It just made me realize happiness is within. You’ll never be rich unless you’re rich in heart.”
