When it comes to the wealthiest hip-hop artist, according to Forbes, and you guessed Jay Z, 50 Cent, or Dr. Dre, you would be close, but wrong.
According to Forbes, Diddy is the wealthiest hip-hop artist and is worth $580 million dollars and pulled in $50 million in the past year. That is a whole lot of green.
Dr. Dre was number 2 worth $350 million and made $40 million last year.
Birdman is worth $150 million to put him at number 3.
50 Cent aka Curtis Jackson is worth $125 million.
Looks at bank account. A negative sign before the money isn't good is it?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Yea, the money is in music writing about the artists who make the money. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!
Will.I.Am & Britney Spears have released "Scream & Shout" Remix featuring Hit Boy, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Wayne & Diddy. Some are claiming that it is not actually Britney at all on the track.
It is not like Britney is singing exactly. I think it is a testament to Will's production that people don't think it is Britney on the song.
Rappers still rapping "Yolo" and the production value of the video is not really up to Will's usual level. Aside from Diddy saying "bitch" like he just created it, he makes sure you see his Ciroc in the video. Lil Wayne says he has a bad memory so we have a feeling he already forgot appearing in this video.
Will.I.Am has got his street cred back by appearing with these rappers. Now, let's just keep Will to doing his own stuff and focusing on the beats and the party atmosphere that upsets people over 35 and keeps the people under 25 happy.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Britney is cool but acting like Fergie makes me miss Fergie.
"What's up snitches!?" As soon as Robert De Niro says that while in drag, the skit takes a turn. Not sure if it is for the worse or what.
Andy Samberg as "Blizzard Man" reminds me of Snow and Vanilla Ice from back in the 90's. Diddy seems more interested in getting into De Niro though.
Check out the skit above n let us know what you think.-Dr.FB
