French Montana comes back with the fifth chapter in the Coke Boys mixtape series. This one isn’t very good. There’s really not a lot that is salvageable from this one. French Montana is the type of artist that will make 100 songs and there might be 2 or 3 good ones in there. A lot of these songs on here sound the same. It gets real repetitive. The beats are decent, but when French tries to put whack lyrics or hooks over top of them, it often devalues them. He’s not really that good of a lyricist. He pretty much makes this newer style music to stay relevant. If there are highlights on here, it would be the songs where he flips older samples. On “Straight For The Bag,” he flips the Three 6 Mafia sample for “Who Run It.” On “Big Cap,” he flips Warren G’s “This DJ” and those songs sound pretty decent. Most likely because they sounded good the first time around. Most artists can’t go wrong when they remake an older song like that. This one is definitely an album I would probably pass on. You’re not missing much.
OVERALL RATING: 1.5 out of 5 Cheesesteaks
