Raekwon – “Wall To Wall” (Feat. French Montana & Busta Rhymes)

The eternally tough and hardnosed Wu-Tang rapper Raekwon has been working on his album Fly International Luxurious Art for what feels like forever, and he recently announced that it'll finally come out this spring. "Wall To Wall," the album's first proper single, has more energy and swagger to it than most of what Rae's Wu-Tang… More »

Jeremih – “Don’t Tell ‘Em (Remix)” (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & French Montana) Video

It is rare you see an R&B crooner wear more chains than a rapper in a video, but Jeremih one-ups both Ty Dolla $ign and French Montana in the video for the remix of Jeremih's summer hit "Don't Tell 'Em." The video is a peek into the lavish life, set in a decadent mansio… More »

Beyoncé – “7/11 (Detail Christmas Version)” (Feat. French Montana)

Another day, another remix of Beyoncé's AutoTune-heavy "7/11," one of the two new tracks included on the platinum edition of her self-titled. Following on the heels of Skrillex and Diplo's explosive EDM reworking, "Drunk In Love" and original "7/11" producer Detail has shared a new remix that takes the song in the opposite… More »

The Week In Pop’s Top 50 Pop Songs Of 2014

Two weeks ago we looked at the year's biggest pop songs; now let's run down the best ones. There will be a lot of overlap, of course, partly because sometimes great songs get popular and partly because sometimes popular songs that initially strike you as insufferable end up wearing you down through sheer persistence.

Hudson Mohawke – “Chimes (Remix)” (Feat. Future, Pusha T, French Montana, & Travi$ Scott)

Hudson Mohawke came up as a bass music producer and as half of the great duo TNGHT, but he's now firmly in the rap universe after having joined Kanye West's production stable in time for Yeezus. Now, a whole host of rap monsters has jumped on his dark, pounding solo track "Chimes," turning it… More »

Jeremih – “Don’t Tell ‘Em (Remix)” (Feat. Ty Dolla $ign & French Montana) + “Fuck You All The Time (Remix)” Video

Jeremih's Snap!-interpolating illicit sex jam "Don't Tell 'Em" is significant for multiple reasons. For one thing, it's one of the Chicago R&B singer's biggest hits to date, ruling R&B radio, nearing the top 10 of the pop singles chart, and helping to put the novelty curio "Birthday Sex" (still his highest-charting song) further i… More »

Rick Ross – “What A Shame” (Feat. French Montana) Video

Lord only knows why Rick Ross felt like he had to release two music videos in two days for songs from a months-old album, but that's where we are right now. First up was the sunny, money-soaked "Supreme" clip. And now Eif Rivera has directed a grimly goofy crime-movie video for "What A… More »

DJ Khaled – “They Don’t Love You No More” (Feat. Jay Z, Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana)

DJ Khaled has been an A-list rap fixture for the better part of a decade, even though he doesn't really do anything except yell. I have no idea how he keeps lining up big stars for his songs, but he keeps doing it, and now he's done it again. "They Don't Love You No More"… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Last week, in this space, I lamented that fact that, Gwar, who built a low-budget DIY empire partly because of their music video aesthetic, had left barely a trace of influence on the many, many music videos coming out today. I may have been spoken out of school there. Because this week's video, which… More »

Puff Daddy – “Big Homie” (Feat. Rick Ross & French Montana) Video

Sean Combs is just fun to watch. The rapper, who recently reverted to Puff Daddy form after years as Diddy, just came back roaring with his ridiculous and overblown new Rick Ross/French Montana collab "Big Homie." And now we get the video, wherein he struts through liquor stores and Waffle Houses while trailing a… More »

Puff Daddy – “Big Homie” (Feat. Rick Ross & French Montana)

Because he can't help but stoke the fuels of Twitter snark every few weeks, the man known to the government as Sean Combs (and to beloved former Stereogummer Amrit Singh as "boss") has changed his name from Diddy back to classic-era Puff Daddy. And the rechristened Puff is working on a new album called MoneyMore »

Watch Rick Ross Play Late Night With French Montana

Rick Ross was the musical guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers last night, and sadly, Fred Armisen's house band of '90s indie heavyweights did not back him up. Instead, Ross had his own live band, as well as the permanently stuffed-up Bronx rap star French Montana. Together, Ross and French did "Nobody," the… More »

Rick Ross – “Nobody” (Feat. French Montana & Diddy) Video

Last week Rick Ross released the Mastermind track "Nobody" as a single, and Tom noted that French Montana's hook repurposes the Notorious B.I.G.'s "You’re Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You)," sending Rozay's already high "Biggie Smalls corpse-humpery levels" through the roof. The Biggie homage is intentional -- hence the presence of Mastermind executive producer… More »

Rick Ross – “Nobody” (Feat. French Montana & Diddy)

Rick Ross's Biggie Smalls corpse-humpery levels have always been strong, but they reach record levels with "Nobody," a song from his new album Mastermind. The song is more or less a remake of "You're Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You)," a classic from Biggie's Life After Death, right down to the part where Diddy (credited,… More »

Ty Dolla $ign – “Paranoid (Remix)” (Feat. Trey Songz, French Montana & DJ Mustard)

Last year, the great Californian R&B hornball Ty Dolla $ign linked up with pioneering ratchet music producer DJ Mustard and longtime rap buddy Joe Moses for the awesomely scandalous and slinky "Paranoid," an immediate highlight of both Ty$'s Beach House 2 mixtape and Mustard's Ketchup mixtape. But when Ty$ tried to turn "Paranoid"… More »

French Montana – “All For You” (Feat. Lana Del Rey Sample, Wiz Khalifa, & Snoop Dogg)

At this point, Lana Del Rey is reaching that Coldplay-circa-2006 level where it's no longer surprising to hear rappers sampling her on mixtapes. The latest to partake is hangdog Bronx hope French Montana, who dropped his much-anticipated-among-goons Coke Boys 4 tape earlier today. His "All For You" has Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg verses, and… More »

French Montana – “Gifted” (Feat. The Weeknd) Video

Ever since he stopped being an anonymous internet presence and started being a flesh-and-blood major-label recording artist, the Weeknd has fully entered the rap-album featured-artist turntable. First, he was on Drake's "Crew Love," and since then he's shown up on Wiz Khalifa's "Remember You" and Juicy J's "One Of Those Nights." The twist:… More »

A$AP Ferg – “Work (Remix)” Video (Feat. French Montana, Trinidad James, Schoolboy Q & A$AP Rocky)

Yesterday, we posted A$AP Ferg's unhinged all-star remix to the 2012 underground hit "Work." And now we get the video, in which Ferg and associates French Montana, Trinidad James, Schoolboy Q, and A$AP Rocky take over Harlem's Rucker Park playground and a soundstage that's been made up to look like an abandoned warehouse.

French Montana – “Gifted” (Feat. The Weeknd)

French Montana's oft-delayed Excuse My French was finally released this week. The album includes one of last summer's biggest bangers "Pop That" and convulsive Nicki Minaj collaboration "Freaks," as well as this meditative cut "Gifted" featuring The Weeknd. Check it out below. For those who have been consuming the free-flowing Coke Boys and… More »
