In the midst of the delay for MC4, French Montana had mercy on his fans, and dropped one of the tracks. “Have Mercy” features Beanie Sigel, Jadakiss & Styles.
The track is produced by Illa Da Producer and the one-and-only DJ Khaled (we the best). The Moroccan-born musician returns to his roots in the exotic album cover for MC4, and the music follows suit.
The instrumental for “Have Mercy” sounds like something out of The Prodigy, an electronic and dub group. The grand sound recalls gangsters, cigar smoke, and exotic destinations. Mr. Montana has quite an image to maintain.
The lyrics contrast against these dangerous vibes, as French dissonantly calls on God to forgive him for his sins. Whether it’s bragging or remorse, French lists his crimes: “Cause I’ve been robbin’/ I’ve been stealin’/ I’ve been messed up, haah/ For that big gold chain/ Slang cocaine/ Don’t get gassed up, haah.”
French also ends the hook with an “ooh la la la,” that sounds remarkably like an ode to The Fugees infamous “Fu-gee -la.”
Montana’s album has been pushed back, and now has a tentative date of October 14th for release. French credited this delay to issues with sample clearances on Twitter earlier this week.
French added another dash of the international into his recent song “No Shopping” with Drake. The two rappers put on some iffy Spanish accents, and donned fake moustaches for their music video in the Dominican Republic. Who says musicians don’t have a sense of humour? El Drake and French Montaña gave it their best shot…
