Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop: Diddy Tops Forbes Five: Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artist of 2017 List, Jay Z Is Right Behind Him.

Looks like once again Diddy can say “take dat, take dat” to his haters who question his wealth *coughs 50 Cent*. Forbes revealed that once again the hip-hop mogul landed the top spot on their Forbes Five: Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artist of 2017.

Thanks to Revolt TV, Ciroc vodka deal with Diageo, successful Bad Boy Reunion tour and other investments Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs pulled in a whopping $820 million. Not bad Puff, not bad at all! BUT his reign at the top isn’t as safe as it used to be as Jay Z is closing in on him.

Hova had himself a year bringing in an astounding $810 in million. Forbes reports Jay Z’s fortune jumped 30% in the last year thanks to investment deal with Sprint that pushed the value of his steaming service to $600 million. Jay’s other ventures with champagne brand, Armand de Bringnac, his film TV-deal with the Weinstein Company and of course his growing brand Roc Nation helped Hov make his impressive push.

To celebrate the news landing the top spot on Forbes list once again Diddy dropped this classy post on Instagram featuring his closest compeitition on the list.

Rounding out the list is Dr.Dre coming in third bringing in $740 million. His total was helped by selling his Beats franchise to Apple for a whopping $3 billion. Cash Money President Birdman again grabs the fourth spot on the list bringing in $110 million thanks to his deals with Lil’Wayne, Drake and Nicki. Speaking of Drake he closes out the top 5 earning $90 million thanks to his album Views, his deals with both Apple and Nike, successful Summer Sixteen tour and his label OVO.

Last years list featured the same usual suspects but had Dre following behind Puff instead of Jay with Birdman and Drake in the same spots on the list. Well if anything congrats to these guys cause they are rich, filthy rich!

New Music: Kendrick Lamar, Ace Hood, Raekwon & Ghostface Killah

Kendrick Lamar shut the innanets completely down on last night as he debuted his new track “The Heart Part 4” all while trolling fans on Instagram earlier during the day with the artwork seen above teasing a new album.

On the song, Lamar comes back more explosive than ever and shots are being fired. But the question that seems to be dwindling at this point and time is, “who is he referring to? Drake, Big Sean, or both of them at the same time? And is he going after Jay Z as well??” KDot also took a stab at Trump paired with his connection to Russia.

About the “unknown rapper” that he speaks of, he says:

My fans can’t wait for me to son ya punk ass and crush your whole lil shit
I’ll Big Pun ya punk ass, you a scared little bitch
Tiptoein’ around my name, nigga ya lame
And when I get at you homie don’t you just tell me you was just playin’

“Y’all got till April the 7th to get ya’ll sh*t together”, the rapper says as he hints that his new album will be possibly dropping on that day.

Check out the official song HERE.

#TheBIG3 #YoungMoney 🎀 ~ 📸: @mackmaine4president

A post shared by Barbie (@nickiminaj) on

It looks like the Cash Money Dream Team is back together!

Being very public about their reconnection, Nicki Minaj posted a studio picture of herself, Lil Wayne, and yes, Drake. The trio was photographed with all smiles in tow and no caption needed.

Nicki also posted a surprising photo of her and Drake as the two haven’t talked in a very long time since their fall out while Minaj was dating rapper Meek Mill.

Just three weeks ago the PinkPrint Princess announced her single status on Twitter:

“To confirm, yes I am single. Focusing on my work & looking forward to sharing it with you guys really soon. Have a blessed New Year. Love u.”

Since then she has been doing exactly what she said and now teases the upcoming visual to the hit single by Major Lazer featuring Minaj and PARTYNEXTDOOR called “Run Up.”

Not to mention, Barbz has been rocking her “Barbie” chain again that her fans voted for on a recent poll that she made in anticipation of the official visual.

Lastly, a new icon has been released for Nicki’s app:

It is safe to say that Nicki is quite busy these days!

Drizzy has been consistently working his Boy Meets World Tour tour overseas.

Lil Tunechi has a few projects to release this year which includes Tha Carter V that has been teased multiple times between Wayne and Birdman upon their public feud.

Can’t wait to see

https://soundcloud.com/blaxlife/used-to-this-freestyle

BLAX follows up his recent single “Nothin” featuring G.R.A.M.Z. with a new freestyle over Future and Drake’s “Used To This.” Lyrically, Blax holds nothing back. He consistently gives us more reason to become a fan and proof that he should be someone to watch for. His word play is phenomenal with standout lyrics such as: “Out of pocket? You get out of body. Autopilot that automatic go rat-a-tat out the window of that Maserati.”

Blax holds something that is different and familiar while changing the direction of Hip Hop as we know it. And when asked about the freestyle, the Milwaukee native simply replied, “I”m just trying to put a nail in the coffin of mumble Rap, man.”

Last night, Drake and J. Lo held an alleged exclusive themed-party called Wonderland Prom where the two experienced a throwback moment of winning “King & Queen” of their Senior Prom at a school of what seems to be named Preston Hollywood High?

Drake’s Father, singer Dennis Graham even serenaded the crowd with his son right by his side as J. Lo stands by experiencing the Father & Son bond.

Funk Flex Chimes In On Drake and J.Lo Possibly Dating & Gets Roasted On Twitter!

@Instagram/JLo
@Instagram/JLo

Funk Flex clearly hasn’t gotten over his beef with Drake yet! Last night the often boisterous but legendary Hot 97 DJ felt the need give his two cents on Drake and Jennifer Lopez reportedly dating. Still bitter from the huge L both he and Meek Mill suffered at the hands of Drake he took his Twitter account last night and tweeted:

Obviously caping for Diddy who honestly doesn’t need anyone to defend him cause we are quite sure he could care less about who J.Lo is dating at this point. Flex clearly needs to just do like Elsa sang about in Frozen and:

giphy

Twitter also felt the need to tell Flex he just needs to sit this one out and immediately slandered the DJ. Here are some of the tweets thrown Flex’s way:

No one is here for Flex clearly. Hit the gallery below to see more Tweets calling out Flex on his apparent hate for Drake:

JLo & Drake Put Up Matching, Cuddling Instagram Shots, Confirms Relationship?

Just before the new year gets here Drake and Jennifer Lopez fumes the rumors once again!

This time around, the rumored couple throws up matching pictures on Instagram showing the two having the ultimate cuddle moment. JLo, who seems to be quite comfortable while Drizzy holds her in a bear-hug like position looks at ease with her eyes close, paired with a restful and “very in love” facial expression.

The two were first rumored to be an item earlier this month when the “Hotline Bling” singer attended two of JLo’s Las Vegas residency concerts back-to-back, and Jenny attended an event that was hosted by Drake soon after, which was an intimate dinner at a celebrity hotspot called Delilah in West Hollywood. Later, Jenny and Drake reportedly left with each other.

Allegedly, Rihanna has unfollowed both Drake and J. Lo on Instagram. Could she be laughing at this or does she feel some type of way? Also, did J. Lo break the “girl code” since she and RiRi are friends? There’s a lot of questions and many want to know the answers.

Remember, in early 2016, Badgal RiRi gave J.Lo a pair of blue denim boots from her design collaboration with Manolo Blahnik. Question is, would she take them back if she could?

At the end of the day, we’re assuming that Rihanna and Jennifer aren’t as close as we think, and that the Bronx native is free to date whomever she wants.

Either way, we hope everyone remains happy and there is no bad blood.

Please share your thoughts!
