French Montana is readying a new album set to drop on his birthday. Over time, we’ve seen French drop singles here and there but haven’t really seen a record by him in a while. In a recent interview with Angie Martinez, the Bronx rapper opened up about what he’s been up to, his upcoming album, the artists featured on the album and his new song with Cardi B and Post Malone.
Speaking about working with Cardi B, he hinted that he was the first big artist Cardi ever met. He said,
“Shout out to Cardi B. I just saw her at the VMAs, she was like ‘make sure I look good in that video!’ I love her, man. I remember her when she first started. I love growth.”
“I think I was the first big artist she ever met. She told me that. She was cool, I used to see her here and there. When I DM’d her she was like ‘you were the first big artist I ever met!’ I didn’t even know until she told me. That means something coming from the Bronx. A lot of people don’t make it from the Bronx. That’s the mecca of hip-hop, they crucify you before they give you any props.”
French also talks about having Diddy, and Drake on his upcoming album set to drop on his birthday Nov. 9. He said, “With us it’s always love, every time we make music. That’s why the energy comes off like that.”
