French Montana and Fetty Wap are bringing their respective East Coast sensibilities to their Coke Zoo — a collaborative mixtape due out October 27th. French Montana is coming off his Casino Life 2 mixtape, as well as hit single ”Off the Rip”, while Fetty Wap is still basking in the success of hit singles ”Trap Queen”, ”679”, ”My Way”, and ”Again”. In addition to his chart-topping singles, Fetty recently released his self-titled debut album, which topped the Billboard Hot 200 for first week album sales. Nevertheless, this seemingly unlikely pairing of French and Fetty are uniting the East Coast with Coke Zoo, a thirteen track mixtape — with five tracks featuring both rappers — that has some star-studded features along the way.
