French Montana to Release First Studio Album, 'Excuse My French'

March 12, 2013 | Patrick Homeyer

On May 21, French Montana is set to release his debut album, entitled Excuse My French. Co-produced by Diddy and Rick Ross, the album was originally slated for release this past July. Its delay upped expectations and further tantalized fans' appetites. Montana has stated that his debut features the likes of Lil Wayne (who just released his upcoming album's feature and cover art), Drake, Wiz Khalifa and Kanye West, among others.

Montana's album also features his incarcerated best friend and fellow New York rapper Max B. Fans are curious to see how the Max B collaboration will work out. Other rappers, such as Shyne, have recorded tracks while incarcerated through the use of prison phones.

The most noteworthy tracks on the album are Montana's two popular radio singles. "Pop That," featuring Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne and released on June 15, peaked at number 36 on the Billboard Top 100 chart. "Freaks," featuring Nicki Minaj, was released Feb. 13 on the NYC radio station Hot 97. It is still too early to see how high it will rise on the chart.

To promote his first solo album, Montana released the popular mixtape Mac & Cheese 3 on Nov. 19. (Check out who released mixtapes last week.) As of Jan. 26, the mixtape, which features Mac Miller, Curren$y, Wale, Tyga and J Cole, among others, had over a million downloads on Montana recently shot a video of one of the most popular songs on the mixtape, "Sanctuary," in which he raps, "head shot didn't die/ God got a plan for 'em."

Fans can expect Montana's debut album to combine soulful slow beats with grimy East Coast anthems. The artist's unorthodox, slow rap style is sure to produce more noteworthy songs and memorable lines. Fifteen years after setting foot on American soil, Morrocon immigrant Karim Karbouch is living the American dream, and you are sure to hear all about it on Excuse My French.
