French Montana has the whole city of New York behind him, and today (May 21), everyone will see if all the hype surrounding his debut album, Excuse My French (Bad Boy/Mayback Music/Interscope Records), is warranted.
The Moroccan rapper born Karim Kharbouch’s 18-track project features a virtual who’s who of hip-hop, including Drake, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Diddy and Rick Ross, who executive produced the Coke Boy’s long-awaited LP.
Powered by the strip club anthems, “Pop That” and “Freaks” and the surprisingly introspective “Gifted,” which features The Weeknd, EMF is already garnering rave reviews from fans who have already purchased the set.
“I don’t know how it is but it doesn’t matter what it sells,” French told MTV Hive last month. “It’ll still be a slower burn because of the way the game is. I mean, look at Lil Wayne who went from selling a million [for Tha Carter III] the first week to selling 200,000 [for I Am Not A Human Being II]. I feel like the game’s not the same. It’s not the art. You just got to have a good product. The only thing that’s gonna sell is good product.”
Thus far, Frenchie’s holding down the No. 4 spot on iTunes overall and the No. 1 spot in the music retailer’s rap category.
How’s that for believing the hype? Haannn.

Days after winning the 12th season of “American Idol,” Candice Glover’s victory tour was in full swing. On Monday, the vocal powerhouse stopped by “Live! with Kelly and Michael,” where she performed her first single “I Am Beautiful.”
After auditioning three times for “Idol,” the determined Candice won. “I went home and I studied just about every genre of music and got my musical knowledge up,” she told Kelly and Michael. “I think I turned myself more into an artist than a singer.”
Candice’s debut Music Speaks is due July 16 via 19 Recordings/Interscope Records.

A crazy weekend for Kanye West was capped off by a stellar performance on the finale of Saturday Night Life. Following-up on his own promotions of “New Slaves” on the buildings of various metropolitan areas across the world, the Saturday Night Live segment included the aforementioned song as well as “Black Skinhead” — a song including a sample of Marilyn Manson’s Beautiful People. Beyond music, the cultural icon has often been a talking point in the realm of fashion to which Yeezy didn’t disappoint, taking to the stage in a black-studded leather jacket paired with an upcoming iteration of the Air Yeezy.
With backing from The Roots, De La Soul performed “Jenifa Taught Me” and “A Rollerskating Jam Named Saturdays” on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night.

He did not disappoint. With Yeezy season being in full effect, Kanye West brought his new music in the shape of Yeezus/em>-cuts “Black Skinhead” — which features a sample of Marilyn Manson’s Beautiful People” — and the globally projected “New Slaves” to the musical stage of the Saturday Night Live finale. For the former, he was clad in a black-studded leather jacket and the upcoming all-red Nike Air Yeezy 2′s, screaming his lyrics with a live band in support. He was accompanied by an impressive barrage of imagery which deviated between Rottweilers and price tags, including the phrase “Not For Sale.”
