July is still set to be a big month for New York hip hop, but one of the most-anticipated releases will be delayed. French Montana rose to become the most-popular rapper on the mixtape level on the New York hip hop scene. Along the way, French Montana also led his Coke Boys to stardom.
By 2011, French Montana’s buzz had grown so strong, multiple labels began offering lucrative deals to him. The head of his own label, Cocaine City Records, French Montana was soon in the middle of a bidding war. Eventually, French Montana narrowed his choices down to Rick Ross and his Maybach Music and Diddy’s hometown Bad Boy Records.
French Montana appeared on “106 & Park” to reveal Bad Boy Records was his home and he officially began working on Excuse My French. Earlier this year, French Montana revealed the release date was July 17, which Rick Ross confirmed. But, with French Montana currently touring with Drake on the “Club Paradise” tour, his recording time has been limited.
Due to the time limits, French Montana has been forced to delay Excuse My French until this fall.
