We can all dispute which rapper runs the game, but when it comes to the money the numbers don’t lie: according to Forbes latest earnings list Diddy is stacking more paper than anyone. (Take that, Take that, Take that!)
Diddy is number one on “The Forbes Five: Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists” list and racked in $475 million last year, “fueled by his interests in Sean John clothing, Bad Boy Worldwide record label and, most significantly, his Diageo joint-venture vodka brand Ciroc.” Jay-Z didn’t do so bad for himself at $450 million and was also upgraded to the top of Forbes’ list for Top Earning Celebrity Couples thanks to Beyonce’s earning power.
Rounding out the top five is Dr. Dre who came in several millions behind Diddy and Jay at $125 million, 50 Cent and Cash Money’s Birdman both brought in $100 million.
Why is the list so small compared to some of Forbes’ others? They explained, ”though other hip-hop artists including Lil Wayne, Pharrell Williams, Rick Ross and others — not to mention pop sensation Bruno Mars, who penned Travie McCoy’s hit song “Billionaire” — frequently speak of ten-figure desires, we kept our list to five because of the lack of information available on the fortunes under $100 million.”
Next time we hear all the rappers bragging about the Benjamins we know who’s really running it!

Why are people still pressed about Lil’ Wayne kissing Baby on the mouth? I assumed we were all over this by now? Apparently not.
Cassidy recently brought it up for the millionth time. In his mind, men who claim to be gangsters don’t kiss other men. Are you yawning yet? If so, wait until you read the actual quote.
According to Cassidy: “If you’re considered to be a gangster or a man, period, you shouldn’t be kissing another man or another gangster—period.”
You know what’s so fun about rappers? The very people a lot of them pretend to be – Italian mobsters – kiss each other. Are they gay? No, but they are secure enough in their sexuality. I’m also assuming they read the newspapers, blogs, or something – whatever will keep them from talking about topics several years old.
Speaking of such, Cassidy brought this very topic back up in 2007. He said: “There’s no way that you can word it to make me approve of that, so I’m going to let that be known.”
Dude, you’ve made it known. Now we can all move on.

As Lil’ Kim continues to spend every single new interview referencing her one-sided beef with Nicki Minaj, one of Kim’s old friends has some advice for her: Find something better to do with your time.
Indeed, Birdman spoke with LosAngelesLeakers.com and shared his insight on Kim’s issues with Nicki. He acknowledged that it’s not Cash Money policy to really stay up on beef, but did offer these words:
“I think Kim just need to do her and stop messing around with Nicki and do her own thing. We’ve always been focused on the music, and Nicki is the hottest thing in the game—nothing is gonna change that!”
You can’t see me right now, but I’m standing up and getting ready to do a church jog. Truer words have never been spoken. Earth to Kimberly: Nicki won by default. Let it go and go back to spitting hot fire. Dylan.
