French Montana's Super Bowl weekend was almost ruined when he was taken into custody Saturday night after a party he attended in Brooklyn. French was not the only one arrested at the time, as fellow rappers Jadakiss, Chinx Drugs, Smoke DZA, and Buckwild were reportedly taken in at the same time.
Best Rapper Ad-Libs Currently In The Game
When used properly, ad-libs can really accelerate the popularity of an artist. Just ask Big Sean or 2 Chainz. These between-the-lines phrases are designed to hype up listeners, adding extra energy to their verses. Ad-libs tend to be funny, serious, or flat-out ridiculous. Recently, acts like Migos have taken ad-libs to the next level. While some rapper ad-libs can be annoying, there are those who've properly honed the ad-lib craft, and the result is usually entertaining. Ad-libs can also function as a tag or trademark for rappers-- the instant you hear one, you know who's on the track.

French Montana, Jadakiss, & Chinx Drugz Arrested In NYC [Update: Smoke DZA & Buckshot Also Arrested]
Coke Boys got the feds watchin'. One of many pre-Super Bowl parties was going down last night in New York City, and while the details are scarce, it seems as though it may have got a bit out of hand.

No word on whether any other rappers were in attendance, but apparently Jada was actually HOSTING the festivities before getting booked. Whatever it was, it can't be all that serious, as French was all smiles in a photo of him being taken into custody.
French Montana & Jennifer Lopez Are In The Studio Together
Jennifer Lopez teased a preview of her new Chris Brown-penned single, "Same Girl" last week. The track is about how fame has not changed her, and she's still the "same Jenny from around the way" (sound familiar?). Since she's once again embracing her Bronx routes, it makes sense that Lopez would recruit an artist who shares the same background for the remix, and it looks as though French Montana will be filling that position.

Review: French Montana's "Coke Boys 4"
In a way, Coke Boys 4 is exactly what was expected. Plenty of features, varied production, and a heavy supply of trunk bangers make this a typical French Montana project. This time around, OTF rapper Lil Durk was notably involved after recently joining forces with the Coke Boy family. Even with Durk's contributions, however, the mixtape lacks originality. Though there is a healthy mix of tracks, from the buoyancy of "88 Coupes" to the intensity of "Wit It", too much of Coke Boys 4 sounds brutally generic.

Cole's Born Sinner, Mac Miller's WMWTSO and Kelly Rowland's Talk A Good Game all dropped on the 18th of June), but projections for the sales show that Cole is closer to 'Ye's numbers than we previously thought.
