French Montana - Go Hard
With a long list of mixtape releases and a popular DVD series (Cocaine City) under his belt, South Bronx emcee/label owner French Montana has grown into a major player on the underground scene. On Go Hard, the first leak off his latest project, the rapper who brought us New York Minute lets listeners in on his surefire recipe for street success: work, work and more work – with the occasional break for stunting and womanizing, of course. Flowing over a smooth, spacey sampled instrumental by Brooklyn beatsmith Harry Fraud, French asserts his supremacy on the block as well as the mic, spitting, “Ask about the game, they’ll tell you I brung it back like a quarter white.” Is this underground mainstay truly “the future” of the rap game? Only time will tell, but those digging this hard-nosed track should keep it locked to DJBooth.net for the latest on Montana’s Mac With the Cheese 2 mixtape, which has yet to receive a solid release date.
