Despite its first week debut of nearly 50K in sales, French Montana album debut “Excuse My French” is still the talk of the town and French continues to “press on” as he unleashes more chart top singles. Just days after French closed out Hot 97 Summer Jam 2013 concert stadium with his current hit single “Ain’t Worried Bout Nothin“; the ‘Pop That‘ rapper celebrated his new cover feature on Bleu Magazine at Parlor Restaurant in NYC [June 5th] along with a few celebrity guests, media press, and industry affiliates.

On collaborations he would like to pursue:
“I would say my dream collab would probably be something with Tupac . He was my favorite artist and I grew up listening to him. I have a lot of respect for the work he did, and it would be an honor to be on a track with him.”
Where he finds inspiration for his signature rap:
“I get inspiration from everybody: artists like Adele, Cold Play. I would love to work with them and give the fans a little something different. I always wanna outdo myself and change it up. I think collaborations with artists like that would be a great look.”
Describing the types of music he enjoys:
“I listen to everything; all types of music all the time. Not heavy metal though.”
On surviving the industry:
You need to know how to help yourself by yourself because sometimes there won’t be people there to lean on. You have to hold yourself up when nobody else can.”
Describing his debut album Excuse My French:
“It’s just a lifestyle. It’s the life that I live every day. One day I might wake up in a bad mood and make a song about that. One day I might be with a lady and make a song on that; I’ll be in a good mood and write about that. The album is just all the different emotions I go through on a daily basis.”
