Everything was set for French Montana to hit the ground running in 2012. New York City’s hip hop scene had previously been struggling. After hopes had been pinned on such names as Fabolous and others, critics felt a new star needed to emerge to bring the city back. But, it ended up being the popular mixtape rapper, French Montana, to bring the city back.
Late in the summer of 2011, French Montana began releasing a new song every day, or at least once a week. French Montana ended up catching the attention of Jay-Z, Rick Ross, and Diddy, which caused a bidding war. Despite being heavily-influenced by the South, French Montana chose to keep things local and he signed with Diddy’s Bad Boy Records, but allowed Rick Ross to work on his album.
With Rick Ross as the executive producer of Excuse My French, French Montana is ready to release his album in the early stages of 2013. Rap-Up.com recently talked to French Montana about his upcoming debut album. French Montana said he feels this album will not only be good, but he said it would be one of the best albums ever.
