Welp, we probably could have seen this coming. French Montana's been on a stop and start motion with the long-awaited MC4 album for quite some time now, and now it appears to have come to a full stop, and it won't be starting up again.

The rapper had announced an August 19th release date back in August, but pushed the album back due to sample clearance issues. However he's now revealed to Complex that the album has been scrapped entirely.

He speaks on the problems that plagued MC4, telling Complex, "Songs like "I'm Heated" and "Two Times" couldn't be cleared. By the time I got the mix how I recorded it, it wasn't the same. I just ain't have the same feeling for it. Everybody had to replay shit, and do all this extra shit, so I wasn't in the mood to put it together. All the music going to come out, you know what I'm saying, just packaged differently. Plus, the album got leaked."

The good news, he says he is "70%" done a new project. His one goal with this new project? "Just make sure it don't get leaked. That's why I don't want to announce the name or nothing. I just want to wait until it's done and just drop it. Make sure it don't leak, make sure everything is cleared before I announce anything."

However he does confirm he'll be dropping a mixtape in October with "some of the best music you've ever heard."

Stay tuned.
