French Montana and Max B just added a new installment to their Coke Wave mixtapes series. The Coke Wave 4 mixtape just dropped on all major streaming platforms and contains nine brand new songs from the pair.
The release, which was recorded back in May, is the first installment in the series since 2009. It also represents Max B’s first project in almost a decade.
The mixtape came together when producer Paul Couture started working on new songs with Max B and French Montana wanted to hear the results of those sessions. Montana liked what he heard and wanted to take part in it. The duo then embarked on marathon studio sessions over the course of one week which resulted in Coke Wave 4.
Following the release of the new mixtape, Max B decided to set the record straight about the title of the Coke Wave series.
“Everybody has this thing mixed up that we’re talking about actual coke product,” – he explained. “When we came up with the Coke Wave concept, it was always about the hustle, the grind. When we started, French was in the DVD game. I was doing my thing, had worked with Jim [Jones, the New York rapper behind hits like ‘We Fly High’, which Max B helped write] and all them. So we both had some buzz in the streets. We thought we would come together and put his visual skills with my audio skills. But it’s not about drugs — it’s about the way we took the music and flipped it to make a profit.”
