French Montana: ‘Excuse My French’ Will Be the ‘Best Album in a Decade’

French Montana’s debut Excuse My French hasn’t even dropped yet, but he’s already proclaimed it the “biggest album of the decade.” While on set of his video for “Ocho Cinco,” the Bad Boy rapper backed up the bold statement by revealing the star-studded cast of collaborators.

In addition to executive producers Diddy and Rick Ross, he’s enlisted Nicki Minaj (“Freaks”), The Weeknd (“Gifted”), Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Drake, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, and M.I.A., plus production from Harry Fraud, Young Chop, Mike WiLL Made It, and Rico Love.

“I feel like it’s going to be a classic,” French told Rap-Up TV. “I feel like it’s going to be the best album to come out in a decade.”

One artist he’s still waiting on is Lana Del Rey. The pop starlet has yet to clear her sample. “That’s the only thing holding it up,” said French.

Find out if Excuse My French lives up to the hype when it arrives on April 16.
