Diddy Tops Forbes Five Wealthiest Hip-Hop Artists List



Records sales aren't what they used to be, and one of his former artists just caught a murder charge, but make no mistake, Diddy is still doing well for himself. Forbes has named the mogul the wealthiest hip-hop artist of 2012. For the second year in a row Mr. Combs topped the list above the likes of Jay-Z, 50 Cent, and other usual suspects.

The Bad Boy Records head netted $550 million last year, putting him one step closer to becoming hip-hop's first billionaire. Among the business collaborations fattening his pockets include his partnership with Ciroc vodka, his Sean Jean clothing line, and the Blue Fame marketing agency. The 42-year-old is also planning to follow in the footsteps of Oprah Winfrey, by launching his own network next year, which likely keep him on the Forbes' list for years to come.

Coming in second place on the list was Jay who earned an impressive $460 million, due in part to his successful 'Watch the Throne Tour,' which will head overseas this summer. Next was the current king of holograms, Dr. Dre with $270 million, followed by Birdman who made $125 million last year.

Rounding out the list is 50 Cent who, despite not dropping a single album in over two years, earned of $100 million. He stays winning.

NEW JIM JONES AND CHRISSY LAMPKIN REALITY SHOW ?



Word on the street is that VH1 is offering Chrissy Lampkin and Jim Jones their own spin-off reality show.

The two were some of the most popular cast members of the reality show, “Love and Hip-Hop.” Last season, viewers were glued to the long-time live-in couple’s relationship, and were relieved when Jones finally popped the question to Lampkin on camera in Miami. So of course the next thing the people want, is to see the two get married and start their new life together.

Well, if it does happen on television, it won’t be on “Love and Hip-Hop.” At the culmination of the last season, both Jones and Lampkin expressed dissatisfaction with both the show and specifically, the show’s executive producer, Mona Scott-Young. Jones was very verbal about his belief that major facts regarding his and Lampkin’s relationship were distorted for television. And Lampkin refused to interview with Scott-Young for the reunion show. Both Jones and Lampkin had hinted that they would not work with Scott-Young again.

To get around this minor detail, it is rumored that VH1 is gearing up for a new reality show revolving around Jones and Lampkin specifically. Tentatively the show will be called “Jim and the Family Jones,” and has been slated for anywhere from 5 to 7 30 minute episodes. It is reported that Jones and Lampkin will be making more that $200K each the first season. CHA-CHING! The only other question is: Who will replace Lampkin on “Love and Hip-Hop?” Seems like it will be a boring show without her.

Drake Gives Aspiring MCs A Shot At Opening Club Paradise Tour



Young Money's resident emo MC is giving aspiring rappers a shot at stardom, by allowing them to vie for a spot on the summer installment of his Club Paradise Tour. The newly announced Real Hip Hop Network "Rise" Competition, teams Drake with the 24-hour television network, and OurStage.com, to offer the winning rhymer the opportunity to share the stage on each of his 27-tour dates.



To enter for a spot on the bill, contestants must upload their best track starting today (April 16), and fans will vote on the top MC. "This is going to change someone's life," said OurStage Vice President of Business Development, Dereck Brown. "There are artists who scratch and claw their whole career and never get a chance to share the stage with a platinum-selling artist like Drake." Aside from opening for Drake, the victor will get to ride in a customized tour bus, and land a starring role in the Real Hip Hop Network "Rise" documentary.

Voting begins April 30 at 12:00 p.m. EST, and concludes May 20 at 12:00 p.m. EST. The winning submission will be chosen from the top 100 tracks voted on by fans, and approved by OurStage, the Real Hip Hop Network, and Drake himself.

Toronto's very own recently wrapped up the first leg of the tour last month, and has tapped the likes of J. Cole, Meek Mill, and French Montana, for the second round, kicking-off May 7 in Concord, Calif.
