French Montana released his studio debut, Excuse My French today. The Maybach Music Group/Bad Boy Worldwide rapper celebrated by enhancing his Coke Boys roster.
Def Jam Records’ newly-announced Executive Vice President, Shawn “Pecas” Costner tweeted that French has signed Chicago, Illinois rapper Lil Durk to his fledgling imprint, with posting a photo of the trio, joined by Wale. Durk is already affiliated with Glory Boyz Entertainment (a/k/a GBE), which is home to Chief Keef and Lil Reese.

By Pecas’ announcement and subsequent Durk retweets, it is believed that Montana’s imprint is through Def Jam Records, where one of his mentors, Rick Ross, is signed. Lil Reese is currently also backed by Def Jam, who has faced some criticism after Reese’s legal troubles involving the videotaped assault of a woman.
