Below is the FORBES 2012 Top Five Wealthiest Rappers :

Diddy’s business ventures, along with his career as a rapper, made him the richest rapper on the planet. He built his fortune chiefly through his clothing line Sean John, record label Bad Boy and Ciroc vodka. Acting gigs, television shows and guest appearances add to coffers. He told Forbes in 1999: “I’m gonna be bigger than David Geffen.” Not there yet.

5. Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson
50 cent has made it to the top five particularly for his business-savvy, as the rapper got a neat nine-figure payout from the sales of Vitamin Water, when it was sold to Coca Cola; spent freely on cars, renovations to the mansion formerly owned by Mike Tyson. Cushion remains from catalog, acting gigs and 50 Cent-themed videogames, books, clothes and headphones. Future billionaire? He told Forbes in 2008: “It’s probably going to take me 10 years.”

We love discovering new artists. Recently, we stumbled upon this diamond in the rough- Tyson Kruz- @TysonKruz
We especially love his songs for the ladies. We appreciate these songs for their soulful and smooth lyrics. His song “She Got Me Like”, for example, will make the ladies melt as Tyson puts his smooth voice on display. This diamond in the ruff is sure to be a girls best friend.
With his talent and his obvious triumphs so far we (and all the single ladies) believe in him and his potential for success. Read more about this artist.

T-Lamp is a new and upcoming artist in the music scene coming out of LA. His goal is to connect with his fans at a deeper level which he calls a “musical peace.” The song “I’m feeling good” emulates this “musical peace.” The song is very serene and offers an escape to his listeners. He also offers a more up-beat song “I’m Cold ” which is a song to bump.
From his slow to more up-beat songs T- Lamp’s songs offer a good variety of musical punch. All his lyrics are creative and well-developed which flow nicely to his solid beats.
“What I want to do when I touch the game is stamp my mark on it. I want to brand the Hip Hop world with the T-lamp brand. I’m bringing my voice, lyrics, and originality to the table. My music is base off of what I feel so Im not hesitant to get on a track and speak my mind. Im not a political rapper meaning Im not going to rap about things I feel will have zero impact. You cant change the political view as one person. What I want to establish through my music is humbleness and a passion to give back to those who support and are looking for a escape into musical peace.” -T-Lamp

Frank Ocean’s new album, ‘Channel Orange’ makes numerous references to his deep emotional and personal struggles. “Bad Religion,” for instance, is a story about Frank Ocean’s past love experience with a man.
His honesty in his lyrics has not brought shame to his name but instead has brought on great success for the album. “I tried to channel overwhelming emotions. I’m surprised at how far all of it has taken me.” said Ocean.
Ocean’s album recently hit the number one position on the charts for best Hip Hop and R&B album with 131,000 albums sold.
Considering the success of this album… Do you think that an open and honest artist may be the door to the essence of true art or music?

Waaaay back in the day, I was a fan of the Beastie Boys. Their album License to Ill is a hip-hop classic, thanks to the production prowess of Rick Rubin. But beyond their sound, they also brought a sense of youthful rebellion and adolescent humor to their songs, videos, and stage show. The combination made them household names. Their subsequent albums didn’t move me as much, but every now and then, they drop a single or two that I like. While my personal jury is still out on their new release, from a musical perspective, I think this video preview is pretty hilarious. It features a star-studded cast including (but not limited to): Will Ferrell, Elijah Wood, Jack Black, Steve Buscemi, Ted Danson, Seth Rogen, Kirstin Dunst, and Orlando Bloom. I don’t believe the Beastie Boys themselves ever appear onscreen. Crazy, right? Anyway, here is the preview:
You can see the actual video (it appears that the single is actually called ‘Make Some Noise’) here on vh1.
Today is Jill Scott’s birthday, and we want to wish her a very happy one! Ever since this songstress burst on the scene she has made a lasting impression with her unique voice and signature style. You might want to send her a happy birthday card, if you are able to. In fact, this ecard, in particular, reminds me of her (shout out to Allysha Robinson!).
In honor of Jill, we’re giving you a taste of her latest release: a remake of Bill Withers’ ‘Lovely Day’. Check it out:
Bruno Mars Feat. Damian Marley “Liquor Store Blues”
Around here we like this Bruno Mars kid. I think he has a lot of talent, and should go far. I also dig Damian Marley…so when I first heard this track, I instantly liked it. The video is pretty straightforward…but definitely supports the song. However, when watching the video on youtube, I read the first comment and cracked up….this is what it said: “i smell weed just watching the video”. I’ll let you be the judge: can you ‘smell’ the music?
