French Montana Says Taylor Swift Inspired His ‘Mac & Cheese 5’ Mixtape

French Montana recently dropped his new mixtape, Mac & Cheese 5, causing quite a stir in the music industry. The mixtape features 126 songs and six versions: explicit, clean, sped-up, slowed-down, instrumental, and acapella. Many fans are excited about the release, but some have criticized French for releasing many versions of the same songs.

In response to the backlash, French sat with TMZ to explain his reasoning behind the multiple versions. He revealed that he was inspired by Taylor Swift, who released different versions of her studio albums and saw a significant boost in sales as a result. French hopes to achieve similar success with his music by releasing different versions of his latest mixtape. Mac & Cheese 5 includes guest appearances by some of the biggest names in the music industry, such as Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Lil Durk, Lil Baby, Meek Mill, JID, Westside Gunn, 41, Jeremih, Bryson Tiller, and more. This impressive line-up of artists has generated a lot of hype and anticipation for the mixtape’s release.

In a recent interview with the Breakfast Club, French expressed his hope that Mac & Cheese 5 will inspire other artists to release more mixtapes. He believes mixtapes are essential for artists to showcase their creativity and connect with their fans. By releasing six versions of his latest mixtape, French hopes to give his fans a unique listening experience and inspire other artists to think outside the box.

“Taylor Swift dropped eight versions of her album,”

“I’m just learning the hustle from them. I dropped five versions…My fans always love my beats so I dropped the instrumental. I dropped a capella for all the DJs that like blending and I dropped clean. I dropped the sped-up one because of TikTok, and I dropped the chopped and screwed. So people can stop asking me for all different types of versions, and I guess all those songs equaled out to 126 songs.”

“I was watching everybody doing it. I was watching JT and a bunch of other people who had big records, and I see them just put out instrumentals and all that. I’m like, how come it’s so easy to find this, and when I went on their page, and I saw they had six different versions, I was like, they’re geniuses.”

“I feel like I needed to get everything out the way then go back to the mixtape vibes. I always try to go where the puck is going, not where the puck is at. I feel like the game needs mixtapes, That feeling isn’t there anymore. Albums is dope everybody’s getting used to it, but I want to hear [Lil] Wayne mixtapes, Rick RossRich Forever mixtapes, Wiz Khalifa [Kush & Orange Juice] mixtapes. I just want to get back to that vibe and I want to lead the way with the mixtapes.”
