Video: French Montana f/ Diddy, Red Cafe, MGK, & Los – ‘Ocho Cinco’

French Montana and Diddy

French Montana rounds up his clique in the gritty video for their ode to oral pleasure, “Ocho Cinco,” which appears on his 2012 mixtape Mac & Cheese 3. The Eif Rivera-directed clip, which was shot in a graffitied warehouse in L.A. last month, features hot whips, chicks, and his Bad Boy fam including Diddy, Red Cafe, Machine Gun Kelly, and Los.

“‘Ocho Cinco’ stands for getting head,” said French of the sexually-explicit song, produced by Young Chop. “The concept is called haters from the side watching. We got a lot of haters.”

French’s debut album Excuse My French is due May 21 featuring Nicki Minaj (“Freaks”), The Weeknd (“Gifted”), Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Drake, 2 Chainz, and M.I.A., plus production from Harry Fraud, Mike WiLL Made It, and Rico Love.

“I feel like it’s going to be a classic,” said French, who will launch his first headlining tour on February 26 in Washington, D.C. “I feel like it’s going to be the best album to come out in a decade.”

After putting in the hard work, Machine Gun Kelly enjoys his success in the video for “La La La (The Floating Song),” a bonus cut off his debut Lace Up.

Rap-Up TV: Machine Gun Kelly Goes to Work with Meek Mill and Pusha T on ‘Peso’

2013 marks the return of Machine Gun Kelly. While he released his debut album Lace Up in October, it was missing the fire that made him want to rap in the first place.

“MGK is just professional, bland—there’s no soul or substance in him,” the Cleveland MC told Rap-Up TV on set of French Montana’s “Ocho Cinco” video. “As a personality, Machine Gun Kelly is back. That’s that motherfu**er that doesn’t give two fu**s of a f**k about anything or anyone.”

You can expect to hear Machine Gun Kelly on his upcoming mixtape, due next month. The first single will be “Peso” featuring Meek Mill and Pusha T.

“It’s a joint that makes you want to get up and go to work,” he said of the track, which samples Aloe Blacc’s “I Need a Dollar.”

Machine Gun Kelly was recently in the studio with his pal Wiz Khalifa. While he originally went there to smoke, they ended up recording for the mixtape.

“I felt like I nearly got dropped from my label and felt this hunger that I hadn’t had in a long time, and I just put it in words,” explained MGK, who is still signed to Bad Boy/Interscope. “I felt like I wasn’t a problem in the game yet, and now I feel like, ‘God damn.’ I’m so fu*king stoked on this tape.”

New Music: Machine Gun Kelly – ‘Ratchet’

“Never seen a ratchet get wifed, but I done seen these wifes get ratchet,” raps MGK.

The song serves as the first single off E-V’s upcoming mixtape Bitch I’m From Cleveland 3.
