(AllHipHop News) French Montana is serving up more than Mac & Cheese on his new album. During a recent interview, the Coke Boyz leader explains helpful tips from Jay Z, Khloe Kardashian’s input on his album and a song on his new album that is slightly dedicated to Gucci Mane.

In his interview with Billboard, French Montana explains that he purposely went “left” with his second single “Freaks” featuring Nicki Minaj off his debut album Excuse My French. He explains he made the move to abandon the Hip Hop sound of his first singles “Pop That” in favor of the reggae-inspired “Freaks”, because “when you go to the club and every record they’re playing is yours, you try to go left, and I made that mistake.” Luckily, according to Montana, Jay Z gave him some words of wisdom on how to approach his second album.

Jay Z told me he once made that same mistake too. Your first album you never know what’s going on with the business and labels. The second one you’re like, ‘F— this.’ You get the ball in your own court.

The final tracklist for Montana’s second album Mac & Cheese 4 has not been released, however the article reveals that Rick Ross, Miguel and Lil Wayne are confirmed features. The collaboration between Montana, Ross and Wayne is on a Kanye West co-produced song entitled “Gucci Mane” with a chorus that goes “”I’m about to lose it, man/I’m about to go Gucci Mane.”
