Earlier today we revealed that there is a Mariah Carey remix of French Montana’s ‘Unforgettable’ in the vault, perhaps ready to be released soon. Now, just as Mariah did with J-Lo yesterday for the special Las Vegas issue, French is on the cover of PAPER Magazine’s August 2017 issue.
In the cover story he talks Jungle Rules, doing a J. Cole and crafting an entire album by himself (which he said is what “weirdos” do, read the full quote below), signing with Diddy and more. Read it in full here.
The media has long since lauded hip hop artists who sell well without any assistance, but that’s never something French Montana has attempted, or even considered. In fact, for an artist who declares his favorite songs those in which he’s unassisted, Montana’s reaction to the prospect of pulling a J. Cole (going platinum with no features) is extreme.
“Who sits there thinking about weird shit like [going platinum with no features]?” he says, incredulous. “Those people who put albums out by themselves are weirdos. Music is about having fun. If I’m chilling with A$AP Rocky, or chilling with Drake or The Weeknd and we record, and then I have to say, ‘Look here, bro, I’m thinking about dropping this album just by myself.’ Artists would stop fucking with you.”
From saying he doesn’t know who produced his smash hit ‘Unforgettable’ to calling artists do have no features on their albums “weirdos”, French continues to attract attention with his statements. We’re going to see a lot of discussion on social media about this.
