Rapper French Montana managed to get every guest spot on his new album, bar one, completely free; with the Morocco/Bronx hip hop star revealing in a recent interview that only Max B sent him a bill for his services. He told RapFix that despite amassing the help for so many people, all were willing to help him out free of charge. Although the rapper might be kicking himself soon, if it turns out they all forgot and his proclamation reminds them to send him a bill.
On Wednesday (May 22), the rapper told RapFix Live that his friend and current prison inmate Max B was the only person who wanted to be paid for an appearance on the debut album, Excuse My French, although whether the B gets to spend the money (he's currently serving a 75 year sentence) is another matter. French said, "The only person I paid was Max B. That's about it."
French Montana's new album will be out this summer
Excuse my French offers no shortage of guest spots, with Birdman, Rick Ross, Diddy, Drake, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, Snoop Dogg, Fabolous, Trey Songz, the Weeknd, DJ Khaled, Raekwon, Ne-Yo, Mavado, Ace Hood, Jerimih, Scarface, Machine Gun Kelly, Red Café, Los, Chinx Drugz and Young Cash all showing up on the 13-track release. The reason behind all this charity being, according to Montana, the fact that his peers admire his hard work and effort simply want to help out.
"Honestly, I just feel like I've been blessed for everybody watching my grind," he said. "They see that I grind for everything that I want, I make it happen, so I just feel like people love to help people who help they self, because we all gonna need each other in the end."
The rapper has good friends in the hip hop community.
