Video: Montana of 300 & Talley of 300 – “Gas Mask”
Premiered by The Smoking Section, the Rugged Chicago Artists Mob Out In a Basement, Announce Forthcoming Gunz & Roses Album
Chicago’s Montana of 300 and longtime rap partner Talley of 300 team up again, this time for an original track, “Gas Mask,” from their forthcoming Gunz & Roses album. In an intense black and white visual, which premiered via The Smoking Section, the duo mob out in a basement with an onslaught of aggressive, boastful bars. Often referred to as “Rap God,” Montana Of 300 got his start back in 2008 when he and his crew named themselves after the movie 300, adopting the movie’s underlying motif “No surrender, no retreat” as his own anthem.
“Gas Mask” has Montana and To3 spitting fearless bars that speak for themselves – the two aren’t afraid of anything or anyone. Montana previously worked with Talley of 300 in his single “Planet of the Apes,” which was accompanied by an extended video version. “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.”
Montana of 300 has been building a strong following with a series of remix videos (“Try Me,” “Coco,” “Trap Queen“). “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.
