Although the upcoming emcee hasn’t yet dropped his debut (his first solo album Excuse My French will release on Akon’s Konvict Muzic), he and Three 6 Mafia–Juicy J and DJ Paul–were able to put down 15 tracks in three days.
“I felt like, ‘Damn, Three 6 Mafia wanna do something with me?’ I felt honored,” he told XXL. “So after that, me and Juicy J kicked it and we just ended up doing the whole album.”
The album does not yet have a label home nor a release date.
