18/20

French Montana spends his studio debut bumbling along over bombastic beats and somehow winding up in exactly the right place. The first five tracks hit with undeniable force: "Ain't Worried Bout Nothin'" delivers a double-cup on a lazy susan; "Paranoid" boasts the hardest Young Chop beat this side of Chief Keef. And, in the rare instance French actually uses lyrics, he uses them well: "Got your bitch tip-toeing like Gregory Hines."
