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!

FLY NEWS: FRENCH MONTANA SIGNS TO BAD BOY ENTERTAINMENT/EPIC RECORDS

Worldwide platinum-selling hip-hop icon and Coke Boys music founder French Montana, one of the most prolific and instantly recognizable players in the game today – with nearly 300 lead and feature appearances on singles, album and mixtape tracks and videos – has officially signed to the roster of the new Bad Boy Entertainment/Epic Records partnership, it was jointly announced by Bad Boy founder Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs and Epic Chairman and CEO LA Reid.

Montana makes his Bad Boy/Epic debut today in grand style with the release of a new song and video, “Figure It Out” featuring Kanye West and Nas.

“Figure It Out” was first introduced in February on Wave Gods, Montana’s newest Coke Boys mixtape, but today’s Bad Boy/Epic release marks the first time it will be made available for purchase and for streaming.

Quotes from LA, Diddy & Harve Pierre & French:

“Anyone who has paid attention to the course of hip-hop over the past decade has found French Montana consistently at the eye of the storm,” said Mr. Reid. “He has funneled his North African roots and Bronx upbringing into a unique presence on hundreds of tracks by artists across the musical spectrum. French has now become one of hip-hop’s core artists himself, and I’m happy to welcome him to the Epic family.”

“French Montana is a proven Hit Maker,” said Sean “Diddy” Combs. “When I first heard him, I knew he had that special Bad Boy sound and I believed in his potential. He was on the fast track then, and now, to see how far he’s come, he’s a major force in Hip-Hop and a key member of the Bad Boy Family. Bad Boy is known for creating the biggest acts in hip-hop – and French is not only a part of our legacy but now also a part of our new chapter at Epic Records.”

“French Montana has accomplished more in the past few years than most artists are able to achieve in their entire career,” said Harve Pierre, President of Bad Boy Entertainment. “When first bringing French to the company, I knew that he would become a tremendous asset and bring overall value to the brand. As a member of the Bad Boy family, he has already put his mark on some of the hottest music around, and has shown the world the future of hip-hop.”

“Love the respect and appreciation that LA Reid and his team have for music. I think it’s rare to find that in the industry today,” said French Montana. “Being able to start this chapter at Epic with my Bad Boy family is a blessing. Puff and Harve have been like big brothers to me and there’s nothing better than making music with the people you love.”

The video for “Figure It Out” was directed by the renowned Eif Rivera, who has worked with Montana on numerous projects including clips for some of his biggest tracks (among them “Freaks” featuring Nicki Minaj, and “Bad Bitch” featuring Jeremih), as well as collaborations with Jeremih (“Don’t Tell Em Remix”), Quincy (“Friends First”), the Neighborhood (“#ICantEven”), Joe Budden (“NBA”), and many others.

Congrats to French!

Diddy Breaks His Silence After UCLA Arrest, Says Case Will Be Dismissed After Facts Are Revealed

diddy-justin-ucla

As we all know, you can’t hold Sean “Diddy” Combs down too long! The entertainment mogul is back in just a day after the “alleged” UCLA-kettle ball-terrorist scuffle, and he had a few things to say, to plead his case.

Statement says:

“The various accounts of the events and charges that are being reported are wholly inaccurate. What we can say now is that any actions taken by Mr. Combs were solely defensive in nature to protect himself and his son,” Combs’ rep said in a statement to E! News.

“We are confident that once the true facts are revealed, the case will be dismissed.”

Head Coach Jim Mora says: 

“I’m thankful that our staff showed the level of professionalism that they did in handling this situation,” head coach Jim Mora said in a statement released by UCPD. “This is an unfortunate incident for all parties involved. While UCPD continues to review this matter, we will let the legal process run its course and refrain from further comment at this time.”

Diddy: Imma Knock You The Ciroc-OUT!, Puffy Is Being Called A Terrorist Though? People Play Too Much…

Come to find out, Diddy’s bail was originally $160,000, according to his booking sheet at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Inmate Reception Center. According to NBC News Investigations, a source noted that the bail amount dropped to $50,000 from the time of the mogul’s arrest to him being booked and released from the Los Angeles County jail.

Diddy is due to appear in court on July 13th.
