In the previous blog post, we mentioned that French Montana’s retail album “Mac & Cheese 4” aka “MC4” was pushed back because he was waiting on a few sample clearances. After that, it appears that was not the truth as music executive L.A. Reid said the delay was because French Montana did not have enough hype for the album to drop at the time. Well, pushing back album release dates is sure to start some kind of hype, so that definitely helped out. Did he really need to build up any hype and if that strategy gave more attention to it, how much? We will just have to wait until October to see if it paid off.
