French Montana has revealed several of the producers that listeners can anticipate on his upcoming Bad Boy debut Excuse My French. During an interview with The Boombox, he revealed that he’s been in the studio with Lex Luger, Play-N-Skillz, Harry Fraud and Billionaire Boyscout, and is squarely focused on making “good music.”
“I'm working with the best new producer. His name is Harry Fraud -- he's the one that did 'Shot Caller.' I'm also working with Lex Luger, Billionaire Boyscout and Play-N-Skillz,” he said. “I'm working with a bunch of producers, man. I'm not going to go to a producer that's going to take me in a studio and charge me my whole budget and give me a fake head nod. I'm just trying to make good music. I appreciate everybody that's supporting me.”
He also spoke on what it’s been like working with Diddy for his debut, which is tentatively set for a Spring release. French says that the label “needs [him]” and that it’s a reciprocal relationship.
“I felt like for what I needed, Bad Boy got me...they got me covered. Especially Puff, man. He's going to be the first billionaire rap entertainer. At the end of the day, they need me. Other artists-labels don't need me, but Bad Boy and Puff needs me. And I need them. It goes both ways. Bad Boy was where my heart was at.”
