Everything has a start and a finish and for 32-year-old Montana of 300, he believes his solo career has reached its peak destination. The Southside Chicago-born-and-raised rapper, singer, songwriter is not turning his back completely away from music. Instead, he wants to focus the spotlight on other artists that are a part of his Fly Guy Entertainment label as well as his line of merchandise and products. Montana’s music career dates back to 2006 when, like many artists just starting out, he began selling mixtapes out of his trunk and putting his own shows together. His independent route in the music business allowed him the space to carve out his own narrative. From the beginning, he’s been aware of how his story would play out. “I like to pride myself on thinking differently and not being a follower,” he told BET.com in an exclusive interview, “I just thought it would be smart if I plan my ending and transition elsewhere.”
