Bad Boy Records’ French Montana is back to music-making with the release of his new Mac & Cheese 4 single, « Don’t Panic » this week.
According to reports, the track is produced by buzzing hit maker DJ Mustard.
Of course French Montana’s public romance with Khloe Kardashian doesn’t mean the music was suddenly on the backseat. Mac & Cheese 4 is on the way, and today (Aug. 11) sees its first single. « Don’t Panic » comes with DJ Mustard on the beat. DJ Mustard is still on a roll here with his starry key riff and burping, get-your-a**-off-the-seat bass line. (XXL Mag)
Last month, Montana premiered his « R&B B*tches » music video.
From Mary J. Blige to Miley Cyrus, French Montana pays tribute to the baddest chicks in music in the Eif Rivera-directed video for « R&B Bitches » featuring Fabolous and Wale. The Coke Boy is surrounded by ladies as he cruises in his yacht, and hollers at one of his dream girls, Ashanti. Loso shares his dreams of bagging a pop star like Kelly Clarkson or Christina Aguilera, while Wale has a thing for Tinashe and Erykah Badu. (Rap-Up)
While the LP is not due until November, Montana recently said he had actively pieced together his long-awaited Mac & Cheese 4 studio release.
« [It will be] Mac & Cheese, and it’s like a follow up to all my mixtapes that I had. I got Kanye on the album, I got will.i.am on the album, I’ve got Durk on the album and Chinx, » he revealed. And what’s it been like working with Yeezy? « I love it — we’ve been working on his album and mines so we’re just going back and forth. » So far, French says that they’ve banked about five tracks, and it seems like we’ll be hearing the first one on his project.

Picking up where his previously free download projects left off, Montana said his upcoming release would cater to his fans’ high expectations last January.
Montana has recently worked with a range of artists, from Miley Cyrus to will.i.am, and is tapping into his eclectic Rolodex for Mac & Cheese 4, including a track with Macklemore called « Nightmare. » But the one person who he really wants is mostly unattainable. « The only person I wish I could work with right now is Max B, » Montana says about his beloved, incarcerated mentor.
