french-montana-arrested

Rappers French Montana, Jadakiss & Chinx Drugs were arrested Saturday morning at Funkmaster Flex’s “Tunnel” revival party at New York City’s B.B. King Bar & Grille on West 42nd Street. Details are murky as to why the three rappers were taken to jail but after a photo of Montana being led away in handcuffs leaked to the public, many are suspecting actions of “hip-hop cops” considering that the Super Bowl is in New York/New Jersey this weekend and law enforcement officers are on high guard.

Tunnel was a revered hip-hop club in the mid to late ’90s and was closed in 2001 by then mayor Rudy Guliani for his “quality of life” campaign. The club got its most memorable look when Hype Williams used it as a setting for the opening scene in the movie Belly.
