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. It’s a… More »

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 Mac &More »

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

With last year’s blaring, anthemic underground hit “Work,” A$AP Ferg became the first non-Rocky A$AP Mob member to break out. And now he’s lined up an odd crew of famous rappers to appear on the remix, and what’s really interesting is the way recently-minted pop-rap stars French Montana and Trinidad James get just as unhinged… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Yesterday, Beach House and Phoenix both dropped mindbending, huge-budgeted videos at basically the exact same moment; as soon as I got done writing up one of them, I had to launch into the next one right away. So, big indie artists: Pace your shit out a little bit better! Don’t drown us in interesting music… More »

DJ Khaled – “I Did It For My Dawgs” (Feat. Rick Ross, Meek Mill, French Montana, Ace Hood & Jadakiss) Video

DJ Khaled might not have too many talents in this world, but he’s better than just about anyone else at lining up hard-as-fuck rappers for overblown, triumphal posse cuts like this one. Songs like this have gotten a bit more exciting since Meek Mill’s rise to fame, and videos like this have gotten a bit… More »

French Montana – “Marble Floors” (Feat. Rick Ross, Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz)

Earlier this year, French Montana scored a pretty big summer jam by rounding up half of rap’s A-list for the horny posse cut “Pop That.” And now he’s once again rounded everyone up — with 2 Chainz ably filling in for Drake — with the low-key but catchy Mike Will-produced creeper “Marble Floors.” Hear it… More »

Download French Montana Mac And Cheese 3 Mixtape

Over the past 18 months, Bronx rapper French Montana has emerged as one of radio rap’s unlikely superstars, rapping on across-the-board bangers like “Pop That” and “Shot Caller” as well as penning the memorable hook on “Stay Schemin’” (a contribution which, in total, basically birthed a cult). He’s got a new mixtape today that ha… More »

Rick Ross – “Hold Me Back Remix” (Feat. Gunplay, Yo Gotti, French Montana & Lil Wayne)

I don’t know why this had to be an election-night thing, but Rick Ross decided to, I don’t know, celebrate I guess, by releasing a remix of his face-stomping anthem “Hold Me Back” that co-stars the all-star face-stomping team of Gunplay, Yo Gotti, French Montana, and Lil Wayne. It sounds like using your head to… More »

Harry Fraud – “Mean” (Feat. French Montana & Action Bronson)

Harry Fraud, the spaced-out New York rap producer, has been going absolutely nuts this year, scoring actual hits and cranking out copious amounts of hazy underground boom-bap at the same damn time. And now he’s accepted Scion money to release “Mean,” his first song under his own name, roping in two of his most frequent… More »

Fat Joe – “Yellow Tape” Video (Feat. Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky & French Montana)

Last week, we posted “Yellow Tape,” a new paint-by-numbers Fat Joe posse cut most notable for marking A$AP Rocky’s entry into the A-list featured-rappers roundtable. Now the song has a video, and the most notable thing about it is French Montana’s neon-silk Versace ski mask. But, I mean, that is notable. Eif Rivera directs. Watch… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: October 2012

It’s been an absolutely devastating couple of days around here, so we hope this mix can be a thing you can put on and feel a sense of normalcy, or comfort. Who wouldn’t be comforted by those lips, no? Ten tracks, lots of time signatures/vibes. Go in:… More »

Fat Joe – “Yellow Tape” (Feat. Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky & French Montana)

Good news, everyone! A$AP Rocky is now a big enough deal that he can be one of several randomly-assembled rap stars who show up on thrown-together Fat Joe posse cuts. On Joe’s new single “Yellow Tape,” Rocky seems to blend in some completely that I didn’t notice his verse starting at first, and you tell… More »

Miguel – “Adorn (Remix)” (Feat. Diddy & French Montana)

DJ TEDSMOOTH instills a little wiggle into his remix of Miguel’s sparkling “Adorn,” a delightful take that’s reinforced by the fact that a couple Bad Boys hop on it. Puff takes us back with this one. Download it below. More »

French Montana – “Pop That” (Feat. Rick Ross, Drake & Lil Wayne) Video

French, Drake, Rozay and Wayne rage poolside in the video for “Pop That.” Meek Mill totally goes in on this one — in the pool, that is! You’ll also notice that the Versace scarfs French has been favoring lately are absent, replaced by a much more scene-appropriate pool towel. Watch it below. More »

French Montana – “Pop That” (Feat. Rick Ross, Drake & Lil Wayne)

French Montana’s new single, “Pop That,” is the latest rap single that’s basically scientifically engineered for Hot 97 dominance, and it certainly goes for broke, feature-wise (Rozay, Drake, and Wayne. Yow). It rides icy-sounding, Lex Luger-esque production and the lyrical content fixates on strip clubs, as you had probably surmised from a glance at the… More »

Drake Announces North American Tour

Last year, Drake gave the internet-rap insurgents of the world a vote of confidence when he took Kendrick Lamar and ASAP Rocky along as opening acts on his Club Paradise tour. That was cool. But the thing he’s doing this summer could be even cooler. This time around, he’s touring the arenas of the U.S. More »

XXL Freshman Class Of 2012

Despite the simple notion that making a list of a year’s top 10 new rappers has become obsolete in the days of overnight Internet sensations (eXquire, A$AP, etc.), rap mag XXL still keeps pumping out its annual Freshman Class and people still love to keep arguing about it. This year’s list contains the usual amount… More »
