French Montana confirmed to Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 radio show that the first and second singles from his next album are ready for release.
French Montana also revealed a track produced by Ben Billions with Chance the Rapper and Quavo, a collaboration with Swae Lee that is "just like 'Unforgettable,'" and a song called "No Stylist." Montana released his second album, Jungle Rules, on July 14, 2017.
Tupac Shakur, The Notorious B.I.G., Nas, Snoop Dogg, and Wu-Tang Clan are among the hip hop musicians French Montana grew up listening to.
