Local media report that the French rapper, born in the French overseas territory of Martinique, was subsequently arrested on Avenue de Wagram after performing at a Drake concert at the AccorHotel Arena in Bercy after the Canadian singer invited him to come on stage and perform.

Kalash, 31, real name Kevin Valleray, has been arrested and detained for insulting police officers and resisting arrest as is reportedly shown in this footage posted online by local media outlet Martinique la Premiere.
It is not his first arrest. In 2014, he was arrested for attacking police officers with another rapper, Admiral T. His criminal record, according to local media, also shows a six-month suspended sentence for the illegal possession of a weapon.
Since his arrest on the night of Saturday 16th to Sunday 17th March, Kalash’s mother, Murielle Mas, has told local media in Martinique: “I am serene, if he f*cked up, he will have to take responsibility for it.
“Why? Because I as his mother taught him to make his bed and sleep in it”.
She also said that she believed her son was perhaps too provocative for France and should be working in the United States, because of “his look.”
Kalash has worked with some of France’s biggest rappers including Booba.
Drake, 31, real name Aubrey Drake Graham, has according to Forbes amassed a fortune of 100 million USD (75.5 million GBP).
