Seeing an album filled with collaborations is standard these days, but years ago, albums only features a handful of guests… if any.
These days, an album/project without a feature is rare… but according to French Montana, those who choose to go that route are “weirdos”.
In a cover story for Paper, the New York rapper shared his thoughts on featureless albums.
“Who sits there thinking about weird sh*t like [going platinum with no features]?” Montana said. “Those people who put albums out by themselves are weirdos. Music is about having fun. If I’m chilling with ASAP Rocky, or chilling with Drake or the Weeknd and we record, and then I have to say, ‘Look here, bro, I’m thinking about dropping this album just by myself.’ Artists would stop f*cking with you.”
