He recently promised the delayed solo effort would be one of the best in the past ten years.
“Rick Ross and [Diddy] are both executive-producing the album,” French said in an interview. “I feel it’s going to be a classic. I feel like it’s going to be the best album to come out in a decade. … The album of the decade because it’s just it. I heard everybody’s album and I’m a fan of everybody and I just don’t feel like nobody came out with an album like this.” (Rap-Up TV)
Last year, French talked about bringing New York hip-hop back to the forefront.
“It’s been so long for a New York artist to really [have an impact] that it seems like there’s been a dark cloud over New York and the East Coast,” Montana said in an interview. “It’s a blessing that me and other East Coast artists are finally getting our shine again. Artists like Meek Mills (who is from Philadelphia), myself…everybody. We just need more support, that’s all. A song like ‘Shot Caller’ is East Coast…it even has the Lords of the Underground sample from “Funky Child.” But it’s important that we make sure we also make music for everybody else like I did with “Choppa Choppa Down.” (VIBE)
