Nearly a month away from his long-awaited debut landing on store shelves, Bad Boy Records rapper French Montana recently admitted he will support Excuse My French by purchasing a handful of copies.
While the amount he purchases will likely not make or break his overall opening week total, Montana did reveal he would have Bad Boy chip in.
Excuse My French is available on pre-order this week. Honestly, how many copies will you be buying for yourself? Probably about... I'mma buy me enough to give out when I go out on tour. Like, a hundred out of my pocket. That's $10 a piece. I'll have the label buy a 1000 or something and I'll take it from them. What I'mma buy? A hundred. (MTV Hive)
Recently, French revealed how many albums he hopes to sell in the first week.
"May 21st," French confirmed when asked about his album release date. "I'm trying to crack that big number when I drop. Man, I gotta crack at least 200 [thousand] or better. You never know though. You know what I'm saying? You never know though. It all comes down to the shipping. I don't care [what's come out in the past ten years]." (Sirius XM)

Earlier this year, the New York native promised his debut would be the hottest hip-hop LP to drop in ten years.
"Rick Ross and [Diddy] are both executive-producing the album," French said in an interview. "I feel it's going to be a classic. I feel like it's going to be the best album to come out in a decade. ... The album of the decade because it's just it. I heard everybody's album and I'm a fan of everybody and I just don't feel like nobody came out with an album like this." (Rap-Up TV)
