French Montana is out to rule.
Four years after releasing his debut Excuse My French, the Moroccan-born rapper returns with his long-awaited sophomore album Jungle Rules.
As usual, Montana is accompanied by a slew of famous friends, including Swae Lee on the top 10 smash “Unforgettable,” Pharrell, who pops up on “Bring Dem Things,” and The Weeknd and Max B, who appear together on “A Lie.” Other guests on the 18-track set include Future, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Quavo, T.I., and Chinx.
Jungle Rules arrives a year after the ill-fated MC4, an album that was teased and promoted before being scrapped at the last minute, following a leak. Montana recently told Billboard that this album is going to be “better.”
“Had I still dropped MC4, the whole thing would have been dope,” he said. “It wasn’t even about sales. It wasn’t about nothing. By the way, both singles [‘No Shopping’ and ‘Lockjaw’] went platinum. I’m sure the album would have been platinum, but this album [Jungle Rules] is gonna show you a better way. I just think with the transition from label to label, my mind state wasn’t right. I was going through things in my personal life. With this one, I was more in-pocket, you know? I was more settled.”
