Bad Boy Entertainment’s French Montana has delivered some bad news. The New York rapper announced his MC4 album is delayed.
Montana went to Twitter Tuesday (August 16) and broke the news.
Initial plans were for the follow-up to 2013’s Excuse My French to arrive later this week.
Lead by the singles “Figure It Out” featuring Kanye West and Nas & “Lock Jaw” with Kodak Black, MC4 will hit stores on August 19 via Sony/Bad Boy Entertainment. The 14-track album is available for pre-order on iTunes, where a flashy Montana wears a lot of gold chains, as his pet monkey Julius Caesar sits on his shoulder. MC4 will feature guest appearances by Drake, Miguel, The LOX, and Beanie Sigel. (Miss Info TV)
In May, Montana talked about the album suffering multiple delays.
While there’s no official single from Mac & Cheese, Montana has been mulling over the idea of an A-side and B-side throwback single release for “Figure It Out” featuring ‘Ye and Nas or “Lock Jaw” with Kodak Black from Wave Gods. In conjunction with his label announcement, Montana even released the “Figure It Out” video, directed by Eif Rivera. With a new label home for Mac & Cheese, it’s only a matter of time until the “Coke Wave” returns. “Just get ready for the tsunami,” he says. “Things are about to get real.” (Billboard)
Last year, French talked about what had delayed the studio release.
“I wanted to make sure that I was putting the right product out for me, but something that makes everybody happy at the same time. [I’m] coming off my first album, and a few years [of] not putting [anything] out and still being on everybody’s single. From J.Lo, to working with Jay Z, to Miley Cyrus, will.i.am, those are experiences that let people who don’t know who French Montana is see my talent. I figure this time people know who French Montana is so I can give them my own product.” (Billboard)
