While some of the singles from "Excuse My French" either have or will make their run in the clubs, the album is repetitive and lacks an overall direction.

When it comes to artists with a story to tell, French Montana has to be near the head of the pack. From being born in Morocco, to the streets of the Bronx, selling street DVDs, his friendship with the now incarcerated Max B, his new affiliations with Bad Boy and Maybach Music Group, French Montana has a compelling back story. French has either worked with your favorite artists or their boss, so one could assume French would have a lot to say on his official debut, Excuse My French. Assuming such would be setting yourself up for a major disappointment. If affiliations and features could make an album, Excuse My French would be near classic. However, the results of the excessive collaborations, along with French’s limited subject matter, and lack of lyrical ability or overall direction make for a very bad introduction.

Of the 19 tracks on Excuse My French, French goes solo on six, making the album feel like more of a compilation than a solo project. And on those six tracks, French fails to stand out. “Once In A While,” which lists Max B as a feature, although he only speaks via a taped phone call, features French rapping, “Getting shot up, then he got up / Came back, then he lit the spot up / Homie hit the chart up / Morrocan boy, you sloppy boy / Three chains on, I be rocky boy / Packs out the lobby boy...” The drums, and Kanye West sample (“This what ya’ll all been waiting for, ain’t it?”) give the song an epic vibe, like it’s the beginning of something great. For what it’s worth, the track is probably the second highest point of the album. Genrally, French falls victim to repetition both through the course of the album and on individual songs. It’s generally accepted that judged solely on the merits of bar-for-bar rhyme schemes, similes and metaphors, French would rate out as a terrible rapper. But this hasn’t prevented French or peers such as Waka Flocka Flame from attaining a certain amount of commercial success and respect from peers that can actually, you know, rap. So by what basis should listeners judge French, when most of his verses play out like extended choruses? Perhaps that’s a rhetorical question for each individual listener.

On “Gifted” French spits, “I be gifted when I’m faded, faded all the time / I thought they’d love me when I made it, niggas hated all the time / It’s a dirty game, try to find a bitch, maybe get married / It’s like pissin’ in the freezer, tryna make canaries...” Such lazy rhymes unfortunately aren’t limited to French, as “Trap House” finds Rick Ross serving up the following:

“I’m a boss motherfucka / Pull up to the club, just to floss motherfucker / On a soft motherfucka / Rich motherfucka / All the whips foreign, take ya bitch motherfucka / Suck a dick motherfucka / I’m the shit motherfucka…”

Nicki Minaj ventures into similar territory on “Freaks” offering the uninspired #hashtag rhyme, “Big fat pussy...Mufasa.” In and of themselves, none of these errors are cardinal sins. In fact, the artists in question have comitted them on several occasions. And the gold-selling “Pop That” proves there is an audience for French Montana and his many collaborators. Records like “Freaks” and “F*** What Happens Tonight” have a much more Caribbean feel (due to the Chaka Demus and the Pliers sample and Mavado hook respectively). While, “Bust it Open” and “Pop That,” have a much more Southern feel. The reach to other markets seems to work on “Pop That,” but it doesn’t work as well on the other records, whether it be the cringe-inducing Mavado hook on “F*** What Happens Tonight,” which nearly ruins great verses from Scarface and Ace Hood. Ironically, the highest point of the album is “We Go Wherever We Want,” if for nothing other than the chemistry of a “C.R.E.A.M.” sample (courtesy of producers Vinylz and Allen Ritter) combined with a Raekwon feature.

Excuse My French comes off as extremely formulaic. The use of recognizable samples, the go-to features of the day (Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd, two Lil Wayne features, three Rick Ross features), the attempts to cover all markets and demographics, give the album a forced feel. While some of the records either have, or will make their run in the clubs—strip clubs specifically—listening to Excuse My French in its entirety is an extremely strenuous task at best. While excessive tales of flossing, the streets, and misogyny are nothing new to Hip Hop, the complete lack of creativity those subjects are executed with on this project, whether it be lyrically or instrumentally, make it a hard listen.

  • dockitty mancini

    You cant be extremely critical of this album. It boasts a handful of pretty decent songs going by what is obtainable on both the radio and on charts. production and hooks are at par with the generic formula that seems to be working these days. it's definitely great for riding to in the whip. french is known for excessive features so the taps into the fan base of these artistes along with those he's already garnered from the mixtape series. let's just watch the sales and then decide if the objectives were met.other than that, its pretty much what is expected from french montana. if you are in dire need of new york sounds and all that complex wordplay...u should know who to listen tocos there are quite a few options out

    Disappointed! I really looked forward to this album release, I bought the delux edition and still had a hard time finding tracks that stood out, and would be a track I would want to play. I really enjoyed his coke boyz mixtape, and wish he would have kept the features for only rappers in his coke boyz click. A lot of the features are terrible and really ruin the record, especially rick ross. Disappointed!

    French worked hard and really needs your hard earned money. He has 3 year old boy to feed and a baby mama to take care of. Also he is bringing back that real gritty NY rap that has been gone for so long. French is a man with a vision and he needs your help to make his vision a reality. Frenchs new album will forever change hip hop, it will have rappers look at themselves and realize that things get deeper than this rap shit (to use the words of the great Rick Ross). French Montana is going to save hip hop, he is that great light at the end of a dark dark tunnel!

    Content: 1/5 Guest spots: 3/5 French's lyrics: 0/5 Guest lyrics: 3/5 MC: 2/5 Production: 5/5 My honest opinion. Most of the beats are listenable and entertaining, and in the hands of a better rapper would equate to a very good album. As it is the best verse is Drake's guest bit on "Pop That"

    • Anonymous

      For production to be 5/5 it would have to be some Illmatic type shit... If I'm honest I've only heard "Pop That", that's all I need to know that's it's certainly not 5/5.

He says himself he's not lyrical but you idiots keep saying oh the album needs more lyrics.????????????????????????????????????????????????????When was he ever lyrical to begin with? Like was he supposed to be lyrical over night? Why even waste your time listening to the album, when you guys want lyrics? Who's the real dummys here? My evauluation is its just some shit to bump. You guys talking like you was expecting classic. The game is flooded rite now. The 90's is gone. Wake up it's 2013!!!! There are different lanes in rap. French is in lane. Nas is in his lane. Ross is in his lane. Kendrick is in his lane.I could keep going. Stop acting like you was expecting this album to save hip-hop.

I like what he's trying to do.. and considering all the free mixtapes he's made that are worthy.. i'm not upset... but the Ice Cream remake joint was the best.. he sounds better when he's just having fun and not thinking too much..HAAAAAH!!!

    This is not his best, but still he got hot production and hot hooks. Nowdays that is all you need to get it in wit this kind of music. Even though I was expectin a lil more french knowing that this is his first album, he got a couple radio hits that will make him plenty of dough. That is why he aint worry about nothing. Plus he already drop like 10 albums in the street he got some hot shit, hes definetly a hitmaker. A lot of ppl can rhyme and write good lyrics, but no everybody can write ahot hook. If he was so bad in music, then why is he outhere? Is not that easy to be mainstream. This nicca did what a lot of niccas cant do. Get money with music. Stop hating , yall make me laugh so hard! Cuz yall haters are soooo ignorant. But it is ok. That is one of the symptoms.

    • urinalcakes.com

      @reality420 yeah your views and opinions are rather distorted. you're literally blunted on reality, pal. let me give you something to help you sober up: he only got famous because of his affiliation with max b and his many (and unnecessary) cosigns.

    These modern rappers have forgotten the art of storytelling. That's what's made Pac, Big, Jay, Nas, Em, etc., great because they can do the club and radio shit but interweaving their lives in it. Go on Jay-Z Life & Times channel on Youtube. French got a crazy backstory. Father abandoned the family and went back to Morocco. Dude was shot in the head. The dude that set him up was the same one that brought him to the hospital. Also, I don't get why niggas don't just make an album with 12 *solid* tracks (8 solo, 4 features) instead of around 20 with a bunch of features. No one's buying albums anyway. You can't tour with all those features 5 years from now. At least you can do 12 tracks that when you hear that shit you want more.

And i think it's a good albums for his first, he has some work to do with his flow and rhymes, but hell, most popular rappers today have simple-ass lyrics, look at 2chainz and lil wayne.. most of their lyrics are stupid and simple, but fans eat it up, just like they'll eat up this album.. watch it top the charts for weeks on end, just like based on a t.r.u. story did.

    French worked hard and really needs your hard earned money. He has 3 year old boy to feed and a baby mama to take care of. Also he is bringing back that real gritty NY rap that has been gone for so long. French is a man with a vision and he needs your help to make his vision a reality. Frenchs new album will forever change hip hop, it will have rappers look at themselves and realize that things get deeper than this rap shit (to use the words of the great Rick Ross). French Montana is going to save hip hop, he is that great light at the end of a dark dark tunnel.

    Mediocrity realized.. the album lacks an artist. The catch the moment feel is in full effect and its no wonder why he kept pushing it back because he failed to release when he buzz was the hottest. Instead he got into drama with 50 , got aired out by his baby momma and totally bombed on his response about his kid being in the hospital. Oh and did I mention he lacked songs?

    thank god most people arnt surprised by this review. French Montana NEVER had talent, and anybody who was in high anticipation for this album is a genuine idiot. its people like French Montana who are ruining hip hop. He claimed this album who bring the Bronx back to hip hop. If this class act clown is whos putting New York back in hip hop, i have nothing but fear for the genre. Its Joey Bada$$ who is a true NY artist. This stupid ass clown Montana is a gimmick, and a shitty one at that. I didnt even buy the album, my ten dollars is spent better elsewhere.

    • Anonymous

      Considering that Joey makes 90's throwback music, I dont see him ever becoming a popular mainstream rapper with a large presence in hip hop. His whole 90's gimmick is preventing his career from taking off because lets face it nobody listens to boom-bap rap anymore especially the younger generation. Joey will only appeal to old hip hop heads hungering for nostalgia. I would put Bronsin in the same boat as Joey.

    • Anonymous

      Mostly because Joey doesn't really want a record deal yet. Otherwise I have to agree, he is the prototype of an underground mixtape artists. He'll spend a few years trying to gain some attention from the mainstream, then end up being signed to a bigger indie label, doing around like ten thousand sales per album. I wish him the opposite cause the dude got skills, but I doubt that he'll ever be in the same position like (for example) Kendrick nowadays.

French has always been a soulful rapper first and trap rapper second if u go back and look at his mac and cheese and coke boys tapes. None the less the soulful tracks on this album are solid he should have stuck with that type of sound. Paranoid and Trap House are decent trap songs but the rest are wack.

    I'm just kidding with you all. This really is the album of the decade like Montana said with the collaborators adding fuel to the greatness of this album. Remember, Dr Dre had plenty of collaborators for his 2 albums (they are wack by the way). Plus French Montana has plenty of depth and emotion. He has terrific club bangers like Pop That but also shows his emotional side with his Max B collaborations (Max B had nothing to do with the murders FYI.) This is truly an amazing album that beats out Game, Kendrick Lamar, and Nas (all who released whack albums.) This deserves the first ever infinity rating. Something far higher than 5/5 rating!!!

    Worst review and what a shitty website you guys got going on here. Seriously when was the last time you updated this uninspiring javascript you have running here? This site gave Chief Keefs illiterate ass 3 stars but Frenchie gets 2.5. These idiots apparently never listened to French Montana's mixtapes, they act like this dude just showed up one day or something. He's been on the scene feeding the streets fire for 5+ years now. Why the fuck does he have to write some garbo tracks detailing his ethnicity and his hard times growing up in the projects like every other idiot rapper does. Frenchie fans know his history already, and those that don't are not checking for that. Every track on this niggas album is a bangning, head bumper while you push your whip to and from club/work. Meanwhile even though I like Styles P that garbo album Float got 3.5 stars? lol, have you listened to Styles wordplay recently? Hes fell off drastically within the last 4 years. He rhymes the same 14 words over and over again, no originality. With French he has a UNIQUE sound. Jesus this reviewer is a hypocrite and a moron. P.S. Computer Science graduate who has a higher I.Q. than this arts major reviewer which is funny because he thinks putting down this album is in some way reflective of his mental fortitude. LMAO, not even close!

      Stop it. French Montana is trash and that's why 70% of his album has features. If he was nice, he would have used his debut album to feature himself.

      damn homie how butthurt are you? you dont gotta agree with every album review, thats why they let the readers vote too. and take a look at the average review, 2.17 out of 24 reviews so far, so i would say the reviewer was pretty spot on.
