French Montana: Cocaine & Caviar
French Montana or most commonly known as "Frenchy" in the Hip-Hop society has released another mixtape titled, "Cocaine & Caviar". The Bronx representative has made quite an impact in the past few years with his verbal presence and "Laxed" songs, as well as his ties with Rapper Max B who's enduring Seventy plus years in a maximum security prison. The mixtape features artist such as Wiz Khalifa, Wacka Flocka, Gucci, Akon and Currensy, its easy to see how Frenchy is building a name for himself. The first song that caught my attention was "Not Ready" featuring Wiz Khalifa which was a classic warning track to the competition with a lot of witty weed mentions. "Chopa Chopa Down" featuring Wacka Flocka was aimed to be a classic hype track but I don't think it met expectations. There was a track which I thought possessed that real New York City vibe, and that track was "We Runny" with Fat Joe addressing competitors and haters alike. Listening to those tracks I could see the direction Frenchy took towards this mixtape, and slowly began hearing how he matured over certain beats and staying on the subject. His collaborations with D Block representatives Jadakiss and Styles P were well done and proved to be great dope boy music. Masspike Miles also did a great job on his two featured tracks, I went online and saw the video for one of the tracks Miles did with Frechy called, "She Loves It" which was a real sensual track for the ladies. My favorite feature on the track had to be a song with Memphis Rappers Three 6 Mafia called, "Money Money Weed Blow" it had a real chill melodic vibe to it. Another song called , "Top Chef" had an strait drop to it that most Rap heads can easily bop to. Frenchy also hopped on two of the summers classics which were "Light Up" By Drake and the ever so popular "BMF" which he Boddied! His best solo track on the mixtape was "Juuuuu Heard" which was a classic to say the least. The "coolest" feature I heard was towards the end of the mixtape which had to be "In The Sun" with Currensy, the song had a Potheads delight type feel to it, which is something most music heads want these days. Cocaine Caviar is a dope mixtape, French Montana is definitely progressing as an artist and has managed to proove he's a relevant rapper and can maintain that role. Good party and smoke music is what you'll get on this mixtape besides the ganster glory behind it, I just wonder what will Frenchy do next?
