I first started listening to Devin Therriault a couple years back (at the time his band went by Devin and the Lil Angels) when I first came to Vassar… he’s a friend of a friend kind. ANYWAYS he’s gaining momentum in Brooklyn, and has a record deal in the works last I heard. This dude is going to be BIG SHIT, take it from me kids. He plays a sexy guitar with a 50s mod vibe (AWESOME).

I Don’t Think I – Devin Therriault
French Montana, the Moroccan-born New York City coke-rapper, has been getting more and more buzz recently in the rap scene. After years of releasing “street albums” (aka mixtapes) under the names, Coke Wave, Mac Wit Da Cheese, Coke Boys, and various other derivatives of the previous, French has switched labels from Akon’s Konvict Muzik to Diddy’s Bad Boy Records under Interscope. With this big change, French has been hitting up the features recently with most notably the Drake-Common diss track, “Stay Schemin”, off Rick Ross’s most recent mixtape, Rich Forever. French has also dropped 2 singles, one being a song called “Shot Caller”, produced by Harry Fraud, who provides the song with one of the nicest beats I’ve heard in a while. While French Montana has never been called anyone’s favorite rapper (sorry…) or truly applauded for his lyricism, his smooth flow and slurred vocals provides his music with an easy-going mobster don demeanor.
