French Montana Feat. Diddy "First Time" Video
French Montana Feat. Diddy
French Montana and Fetty Wap's joint Coke Zoo mixtape, released at the end of October, has proven to have a short shelf-life, at least relative to most of the material put out by either emcee. In fact, one of the tape's hottest songs, "First Time," is basically a solo Montana track, with the intro and outro coming from Diddy, who's been speaking on records more than he's been rapping.

French Montana Feat. Chris Brown & Migos "Moses" Video
French Montana Feat. Chris Brown & Migos
French Montana has a lot of friends in the industry -- to the point he can get Chris Brown, Migos, and 808 Mafia on one track. With all those elements in place, it's hard to make something that isn't effective on some level. "Moses" sometimes feels a bit chaotic with all it's moving parts, but the feeling that it could fall apart at any moment is part of the thrill. Quavo proves he can go toe-to-toe with a traditional R&B singer, dueling brown with his own auto-tuned melodies. Montana meanwhile gets hit stutter-flow on, recalling more the work of Future than anyone from New York.
Word On The Street: Halloween Edition
Every year we get to see our favorite celebrities/artists take Halloween to a new level, thanks to teams that are dedicated to hair, make-up and clothing, while us regular folk subsist on thrift store finds and DIY make-up. We may not be able to match the quality of their costumes, but we still like to ogle them afterwards.

French Montana and Fetty Wap will be releasing their joint mixtape Coke Zoo later tonight, but first they've released the video for their recent single "Freaky". Rolling with the title, Fetty and French hit the strip club in the new clip (feat. Monty of course). If you didn't get your fill of "Yeaaah Baby" ad-libs from Fetty's album, you're in luck, as the rapper's exuberant catch phrase is actually built into the beat here. We're not sure if this is the direction we should expect for the tape, but we're hearing to hear some more Fetty singing. Look out for it later tonight.
