French Montana details the new approach he's taking to "Mac & Cheese".
French Montana is currently preparing his sophomore album, Mac & Cheese, and in a new interview with Billboard, he's explained what we can expect from the new record. According to French, he's very much taking the direction of the album into his own hands this time around.
The rapper revealed two songs that will make the cut of the record, including a song with Miguel, and a crew track with Rick Ross and Lil Wayne, cryptically titled "Gucci Mane". It seems that the song will be using the currently incarcerated GuWop as a punchline for "going crazy", with lines like "I’m about to lose it, man/I’m about to go Gucci Mane". The comparison is likely a reference to Gucci's infamous (and allegedly drug-induced) Twitter meltdown last year. Harry Fraud, who is executive-producing the album alongside Kanye West, feels the song may "make people nervous."

On releasing "Freaks" as a single:
When you go to the club and every record they’re playing is yours, you try to go left, and I made that mistake. Jay Z told me he once made that same mistake too. Your first album you never know what’s going on with the business and labels. The second one you’re like, ‘Fuck this.’ You get the ball in your own court.
On media attention surrounding his relationship with Khloe Kardashian:
I want to capitalize on it. I’ll get a fan base from everywhere. I just hope I’ll be able to connect with everything that’s going on.
On Kim Kardashian's influence:
She told me, 'They will spread negative energy if they can. Don’t let it get to you'. She’s definitely given her feedback on the songs.
On "Explicit", his new song with Miguel:
The platform they got me on right now, an R&B record would do me really good with the ladies.
