Earlier today, French Montana unveiled the artwork for his Excuse My French debut album. Arriving on April 16, the album’s cover features a young child walking through the Moroccan desert. When speaking on the meaning behind the artwork, French explains to Rolling Stone the importance of his Moroccan heritage.

“The concept of the cover is to represent my journey from Morocco to New York, from a kid to a hustler, from the beginning to today. The deserts represent the dry period of my life when I had nothing and I had to work to get that water and to make a living for me and my family. It was only right that I used my son for that picture. He represents my future and me; I represent his past. It is all about the journey of my life, my music, and my movement.”

Expect French’s new single “Freaks” with Nicki Minaj to debut sometime this week. The raunchy cut features a sample of 90s song “Freaks” by Lil’ Vicious and Doug E. Fresh.
