French Montana and ASAP Rocky Connect on “Said N Done”
French Montana's MC4 drops in two weeks (Aug. 19) but today fans are treated to the next single from the project, "Said N Done" featuring A$AP Rocky. The track samples the widely-used "After Laughter (Comes Tears)" by Wendy Rene which used on the Wu-Tang Clan's "Tearz" in 1993
For MC4, "Said N Done" follows "No Shopping," "Figure it Out" and "Lockjaw" as pre release singles, with French leading with his more high-profile features. On the track, Rocky raps, "Came for the bitches / Shirt tucked in cause I came for the business / Dope to your brain like a vein with syringes / Back in the day streets was paved with syrengines."
The full MC4 tracklist was released Thursday, with additional features coming courtesy of Jeezy, Miguel, Beanie Siegel, Jadakiss and Styles P. In XXL‘s first ever digital cover story, French talked about the disappointing sales of Excuse My French, why he wasn’t fazed by them and how he knows the time is right for a new album.
“I didn’t feel like I was ready to drop an album as far as my label situation,” French explains about holding off on a sophomore LP. “It’s just the timing didn’t feel right after I dropped my first album. I felt like me just working on projects with Jay Z, with Kanye, with Miley Cyrus, with J. Lo, with will.i.am, just with everybody… Chris Brown on ‘Loyal,’ just all the things that I’ve been doing just kept me right until I felt like my album was ready. And I felt like this album is ready. You know sometimes just because you have the opportunity to drop every six months or every year doesn’t mean you should drop. I grew up on people like Nas, you know. When Nas dropped Illmatic it took him another [two] years to drop It Was Written. When Nas dropped Illmatic I think he only sold 50,000 [copies]. As he grew as an artist, people had to go back and look at his work, you know?”
