The Rundown: French Montana, Excuse My French

In a year strangely bereft of big rap releases so far, the cover for French Montana's debut album, Excuse My French, which drops today, May 21, is all too appropriate: Rap fans have been walking through a desert of sorts over the past several weeks. But French is perfectly poised to quench our thirst after releasing a series of talked-about mixtapes and playing a part, though mostly a supporting one, in several big hits over the past few years. After his impact on various posse cuts ("Stay Schemin'"), the pressure's on French to prove he can stand solo and cash in on his building hit-making cred with his own debut. Does he succeed? Or is French's buzz just a desert mirage? Click on to get our take with this track-by-track review of Excuse My French. —Alex Gale
