Coming into 2012, French Montana hoped the year would be when he released his long-awaited debut album, Excuse My French. Instead, French Montana got another year of practice in, which was well worth it. This practice session saw French Montana release his first official hit, “Pop That,” which featured Rick Ross, Drake, and Lil Wayne.
French Montana began 2012 being involved in two of hip hop’s biggest stories. Common had taken several shots at Drake. When Rick Ross recorded “Stay Schemin'” for Rich Forever, Drake decided to use his verse to fire back. Due to the growing beef, French Montana watched as his voice was heard on the biggest radio stations in the United States.
“Stay Schemin'” is also notable for being the single off Rich Forever, the most-downloaded mixtape in history. French Montana made his rounds, collaborating with the likes of Fat Joe, Machine Gun Kelly, E-40, and even “Mob Wives'” Drita, who appeared in the “Everything’s a Go” music video. The year of 2012 would have made a great rookie year for French Montana.
French Montana put forth a solid effort in 2012 and now begins his official rookie campaign in 2013. Hip Hop Vibe has nothing but well wishes for French Montana and the Coke Boys roster.
