French Montana’s highly anticipated album is a flop. The Bad Boy’s ‘Excuse My French’ sold just 49,775 copies in its first week.
You may remember late last year, Montana challenged 50 Cent to release his album the same day — boasting that he’s outsell Fiddy in record sales. Now, dude isn’t only eating his words — he’s making excuses for failing to move his product.
Here’s what French Montana had to say:
“Um, honestly, I really believe it’s not what you sell, but where you end up at. I feel like it doesn’t matter how much I sell; I know what kind of product I have. It’s going to be legendary. I know it’s going to last forever. I know once people hear it, people will be like, ‘Damn. This is really it.’
Look at Akon. He sold 17,000 first week; he ended up selling five million copies. Look at Shaggy. He sold 10,000 and ended up at 10 million.”
Here’s the bum French Montana telling SOHH that he’d die for music:
“I been shot in the process, I had a lot of altercations, I just been acting like I’m so high that I’m going to die. You ever get so high you start praying? I just feel like if you don’t sacrifice nothing for something you love, if you don’t have nothing to lose for somebody you love, then you don’t really, some people go through altercations with it and they just be like, ‘Man, I can’t do this shit, I’m scared.’
Then you got some people that are like, ‘I don’t care. I’m willing to die for this shit.’ That’s how I am.”
Does French Montana have 18-tracks on his ‘Excuse My French’ album, yet never recorded one song by himself? Of course! Know why? Because French Montana is not a qualified emcee, and should be selling me cigarettes at a nearby liquor store. Don’t believe me.. Ask Tony Yayo.
