Audiomack puts together a playlist of French Montana’s best mixtape tracks.
Do you miss when all of your favorite songs had a booming Datpiff.com tag play before the song itself? Us too. Be it underground legends or the loose creative roots of current mainstream acts, nothing will ever eclipse the feeling of discovering your new favorite rapper and downloading their 40-track mixtape off Datpiff. To bolster that feeling in the digital age, minus the infuriating DJ tags, Audiomack has put together a playlist of French Montana’s best mixtape cuts.
A track like “88 Coupes,” with the legendary Jadakiss, captures French’s natural grit and measured storytelling. “Coke Wave” and “Coke Boy Money” ride a similar wave The grimiest and most astral coke raps, in the vein of Clipse? Check. We get some crooning and pseudo-introspection on “Mean,” quickly realizing that French Montana has seemingly worked with everyone from Mac Miller and Migos, to Rick Ross and Curren$y. While the mixtape game requires a special type of skill, as we can see, French certainly had the game on lock.
