French Montana dropped the Picture Perfect-directed video for his MC4 single "Have Mercy" Saturday, just hours ahead of the album's release on Datpiff tonight. The track is a stacked collab also featuring verses from Jadakiss, Beanie Sigel, and Styles P. With production flourishes by DJ Khaled and Illa Da Producer, the track is an obvious standout in the French catalog.
Montana recently opened up to Complex about the struggles of bringing a version of MC4 he could be happy with to fans, revealing it's all a matter of how the art makes you feel. Release dates, Montana insisted, just aren't that big of a deal. "I'm never married to a date," Montana told Complex last month. "I got 17 mixtapes I put together, and one album—that's 18 projects in my whole career. I'm never married to a date. I put it out whenever it's right."
Montana also revealed that he's currently "like 70 percent" deep into another project. "Just make sure it don't get leaked," Montana said when he asked what he hoped to accomplish with the new project. "That's why I don’t want to announce the name or nothing. I just want to wait until it's done and just drop it. Make sure it don't leak, make sure everything is cleared before I announce anything."
The rapper also shared a video for "XPlicit" where he and Miguel hit the beach with some beautiful ladies, which you can watch below. Be sure to catch French Montana at this weekend's ComplexCon, where he will join DJ Mustard and many more to discuss the future of rap’s impact on pop culture with the one and only Angie Martinez.
