French Montana wants to get involved in the prison reform, which is the reason why he bailed a woman out of jail who couldn’t afford it.
TMZ caught up with the Bronx native and he said poverty isn’t a crime, and you don’t deserve to be in a cage just because you can’t afford to get out.
He partnered with an organization called Mass Bail Out, which is an organization that focuses on that cause. French Montana revealed that a lot of his friends have been affected by the cash bail out system, including Max B who was sentenced to 75 years in jail.

Today I’m joining the @massbailout – a historic effort to free women and children who are jailed simply because they’re too poor to afford bail. Today I came home to the Bronx and posted bail for someone who should have never been caged in the first place. Thank you to @glblctzn, @rfkhumanrights, @revolveimpact all the grassroots, Black led groups who have been using bail as a tool for liberation for decades. Poverty is not a crime. Pre-trial detention is the real threat to public safety. www.massbailout.com
French vows to dedicate himself to prison reform because if he didn’t, he’d just be a rapper with a microphone. His ultimate goal is to influence the next wave of leaders.
