DIDDY, JAY Z & DR. DRE DOMINATE FORBES "HIGHEST PAID HIP-HOP ARTISTS" LIST, 50 CENT BARELY MAKES TOP

Rap moguls Diddy, Jay Z and Dr. Dre once again reign supreme atop the Forbes "World's Highest Paid Hip Hop Artists" list of the year with close contenders coming in the form of Nicki Minaj and Birdman.

Diddy's worth at $50 million gave him a $7 million edge over close pal Jay Z.
Hip-hop's net worth king claims his first annual earnings crown thanks mostly to the success of Ciroc vodka.

Other ingredients in his cash cocktail: record label Bad Boy, clothing line Sean John and, soon, cable channel Revolt. Lost his hyphen but gained double-digit millions from lucrative live shows, Armand de Brignac champagne, D'Ussé cognac, Roc Nation label/management firm and other ventures. Last year's Cash King slips two spots, no longer boosted by a nine-figure payout for selling part of Beats by Dr. Dre in 2011.

But he's still cashing in on the ubiquitous headphones, expanding the company he founded with Interscope chief Jimmy Iovine to include a long-awaited streaming music service. (Forbes)

The Top 20 consists of some first-timers like West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar.
1. Diddy ($50 million)
2. Jay Z ($43 million)
3. Dr. Dre ($40 million)
4. Nicki Minaj ($29 million)
5. Birdman ($21 million)
6. Kanye West ($20 million)
7. Lil Wayne ($16 million)
8. Wiz Khalifa ($14 million)
9. Ludacris ($12 million)
10. Drake ($10.5 million)
11. Snoop Lion ($10 million, tie)
12. Eminem ($10 million, tie)
14. Kendrick Lamar ($9 million, tie) 14. Pharrell Williams ($9 million, tie) 14. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis ($9 million, tie)
17. Swizz Beatz ($8.5 million)
18. Tech N9ne ($7.5 million)
19. 50 Cent ($7 million)
20. Lil Jon ($6 million, tie

The MCHG album may be lackluster & didn't live up to expectations, but the video is at least interesting to look at visually. Director Anthony Mandler gets the nod for delivering on the visuals for Jigga's "Holy Grail" (featuring Justin Timberlake).

Jay-Z "Picasso Baby" [Performance Art Short Film]

Jay-Z performing Picasso Baby

I have taken four years of Art History, posess a B.F.A. in Drawing/Art Education heck my twitter name is @ArtByOdell so safe to say along with loving Music I live for Art.  Well shoutout to Jay-Z for fusing my two favorite things together with his new video for Picasso Baby.  Excuse me not a video a Performance Art short film 11 minutes long so definately not a typical video.

Hov shoots the video in an Art Gallery in New York and has a who's who of stars in the audience along with a number of regular fans. Kehinde Wiley (A favorite painter of mine) has a cameo along with performance Artist Marina Abromavic, not to mention Diana Widmaier Picasso (granddaughter of Pablo Picasso) is in the video among others.

Jay also enlisted actors like Taraji P Henson, Michael K Williams, Judd Apatow and Rosie Perez.  In the world of Music he has Wale, Fab 5 Freddy and many more just watch the video and point them out!
