Six Takeaways From French Montana’s ‘Excuse My French’ Listening Party


Max B Phones In An Intro From Prison

French Montana has said in numerous interviews that he would be featuring Max B on Excuse My French. Unfortunately Wavie Crockett doesn’t get an actual verse or hook, but speaks on the impressive first track, “Once In A While,” which samples Kanye West and is produced by Reefa.

French, who was seated in the back of HILO among his crew, swayed his head back and forth to the intro’s harrowing beat. It plays off the idea of reflecting on his former d-boy ways—“murder,” “cocaine,” “money on my mind”—that are repeated throughout the hook. The incarcerated rapper, who is currently serving 75 years for a murder conviction, dropped his words over a prison call, completing the entire dope boy anthem aesthetic. As expected, we all soon chanted along.
