It feels like Moroccan-born rhymer French Montana has been in the rap game for too long to just now be releasing his debut album, but in an era of artists who find success after years of steady grinding (Macklemore is 30, Danny Brown’s 31, and 2 Chainz is a healthy 35), it’s not too surprising that Frenchie’s finally released his highly-anticipated Excuse My French today, just a few months before his 29th birthday.

If hip-hop is a young man’s game, despite his age French has worked hard to fit in with the young guns (often referencing club drugs and trap music, and embracing ratchet production a la Young Chop and the Beat Bully). He’s also an incredible charmer who makes up for whatever he lacks in lyrical dexterity with perfect punchlines.

Here, after a celebratory retrospective look back at Frenchie’s best songs (including features, hooks and solo tracks), we’ve compiled a list of French’s 25 best lyrics. Some are funny and some are dark, but they all showcase Montana’s uniquely clever wordplay and delivery. Click through the gallery to check them out…
