Video: Montana Of 300 – “Wifin You”
With 3.5 Million Streams on SoundCloud, the Most Popular Track on May’s Fire in the Church Finally Gets a Video
With co-signs from Kanye West and Rick Rubin and millions of fans who run up huge playcounts on his songs and videos, Montana of 300 is one of the most popular independent artists in the rap game. Though Montana’s melodic aptitude ordinarily takes a back seat to his bars and his lyrics, the sensitive “Wifin You” is a showcase for the Chicago rapper’s singing ability. In the video, Montana spends a sensual day with his girlfriend, serenading her while she cooks an omelette and while they take a dip in the rapper’s pool. With 3.5 million plays on SoundCloud and over 5 million aggregate YouTube streams, “Wifin You” is the most popular song from Montana Of 300’s latest album Fire in the Church, a thrilling mixture of the sacred and profane. Released on iTunes, Soundcloud, Spotify, and in a collectible Bible packaging, Fire in the Church has garnered several million streams on all services.
“I felt like I could possibly be the best rapper that ever rapped,” he told Passion of the Weiss of an early intuition, adding “I got me, I got my brain, and I got God. My lyrics is way more potent than everybody else that’s out right now.”
Hailing from Chicago’s Southside, Montana Of 300 adopted the Rap God alias to represent both his status in the genre and his faith. Earlier this year, Montana Of 300 spoke with Fuse‘s FM TV detailing his experience meeting with Kanye West and Rick Rubin, telling fans to “expect the unexpected.” The passionate emcee has been cementing his place in the game with an impressive stream of original video singles and remix videos which have accumulated more than 200 million YouTube views, building one of hip-hop’s most dedicated fanbases. A knack for dismantling popular industry hits and piercing them with his FGE (Fly Guy Entertainment) flag, Montana Of 300 tackled Desiigner‘s chart-topping “Panda” single with fervor, foregoing Brooklyn-bred wunderkind’s percussive triplet flow in favor of his own machine gun bursts of lyrical genius, which followed a hugely popular remix/mashup of “White Iverson” and “Milly Rock.” Currently planning his next step to take over the game, Montana Of 300 is well on his way to becoming a household name.

Often referred to as “Rap God,” Montana of 300 got his start back in 2008 when he named himself after the movie 300, adopting the movie’s underlying motif “No surrender, no retreat” as his own anthem. Montana’s music is spreading fast, keeping the people talking and running to tell the next. Being versatile and dropping hits like “Holy Ghost,” “Ice Cream Truck,” and “All I Ever Wanted,” he shows us that he’s way more than just another Chicago rapper. Montana of 300 has been turning down record deals, saying he’s comfortable with how he’s doing while planning on staying independent. His new album, Fire In The Church, is out now.
