French Montana has officially dropped Jungle Rules, the follow-up to his 2013 debut studio album The Perfect Match.
Though the 32-year-old rapper delivered two singles—“Unforgettable” and “No Pressure”—back in April, he didn’t confirm the project’s release date until his performance at the 2017 BET Awards last month. Since then, French has blessed fans with several more tracks, including “Jump” with Travis Scott, “Bring Dem Things” featuring Pharrell Williams, and “A Lie” with The Weeknd and Max B. He’s also released the full Jungle Rules tracklist, which lists Quavo, T.I., Young Thug, and Chinx as features.
“I mean, had I still dropped MC4, the whole thing would have been dope. It wasn't even about sales. It wasn't about nothing,” he said. “By the way, both singles [‘No Shopping’ and ‘Lockjaw’] went platinum. I'm sure the album would have been platinum, but this album [Jungle Rules] is gonna show you a better way. I just think with the transition from label to label, my mind state wasn't right. I was going through things in my personal life. With this one, I was more in-pocket, you know? I was more settled. The biggest thing with MC4 was that shit got leaked 60 days before the release date.”
He also stopped by our offices to talk Max B, Asahd Khaled and XXL's Freshman list.
