French Montana – MC4

“Thinkin’ I’ma fall off/ What you smokin’?” French Montana raps on “Play Yaself”, a song on his long-awaited album-turned-mixtape MC4. French is still here, still very much “A Thing,” yet that is now a little surprising. The Bronx rapper has a handful of major commercial hits, but only one of them (“Ain’t Worried About Nothin’”) features French and French alone. On his biggest songs, he’s usually surrounded by A-list artists like Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Rick Ross. Those guest appearances have helped to distract listeners from French’s weaknesses, like his unorthodox flow, defined by an eyes-low lethargy. Nevertheless, despite his shortcomings as an MC, French still has a knack for coming up with great singles, bacchanalian bangers seemingly fueled by gulps of Ciroc.
