Diddy Casually Returns To TRL For The 39th Time

Hip-hop mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs holds the record for most TRL visits, so isn’t it about time we had him back? As expected, he made a grand entrance from the streets of Times Square before strolling into the building that he knows so well. During his historic visit, Diddy recalled some of his fondest memories on the show like being a rebel by waving to fans from the window which led to the police shutting everything down. (Sorry!)

“You gotta understand that this was the cultural epicenter of music,” he said. “Thank you to MTV for launching my career.”

Diddy also talked about his experience as a judge on The Four alongside DJ Khaled, maintaining an authentic personal brand, raising superstars of his own and cultivating talent within black communities. Later on, French Montana joined him on the couch for a big surprise—a generous donation of $ 200,000 from Combs Enterprise to Mama Hope! The Moroccan rapper also used his time in the spotlight to touch on the importance of programs like DACA. After that, they put each other on blast in a round of Most Likely To before Tinashe rolled through to premiere her brand-new music video for “No Drama.”

DC Young Fly and Tamara Dhia closed the show by presenting Diddy with an honorary jersey to hang in the TRL studio, complete with a heartwarming speech from the man himself. Watch it go down in the video below. TRL airs on weekdays at 4:00pm ET!

Diddy Hits Studio With Rick Ross To Mix Mastermind Album

The release date for Rick Ross’ Mastermind album was pushed to 2014, giving Diddy time to work his magic on the project (which is one of MTV News’ Most Anticipated Hip-Hop Albums of 2014). Rozay revealed that the music mogul will actually be mixing his LP.

He shared the news on Twitter during a studio session early Friday morning (January 10).

Ross and Diddy have been close friends for some time, with the Bad Boy CEO even appearing on the Miami rapper’s Rich Forever mixtape, and now they’re furthering their working relationship.

Rozay recently dropped the Jay Z-featuring single “The Devil is A Lie,” and he probably has a few additional surprises in store.

Diddy, Dr. Dre, Jay Z Among World’s Highest-Paid Musicians Of 2013

JAY Z and D'USSE Cognac Host The Official Legends of the Summer After Party - Chicago

By Sean Lynch

Hip-Hop’s representation on Forbes’ “Highest-Paid Musicians” list of 2013, landed on the shoulders of moguls, Diddy, Dr. Dre and Jay Z. The three-kings of just about every Hip-Hop earnings list, find themselves battling it out again, with bragging rights going to Diddy who is ranked #12 on the list. Jay Z snagged the number #19 spot, followed closely by Dr. Dre who was positioned at #21.

Forbes’ used the income- time frame of June 1, 2012 through June 1, 2013. According to Forbes, information pulled from Pollstar, the RIAA, Nielsen SoundScan, managers, lawyers, artists themselves, ticket sales, royalties, merchandise sales, endorsement deals and other business ventures, all factored into the list.

Diddy’s position has him raking in a total of $ 50 million over the course of the 365 day span. His Ciroc vodka venture played a large role in his placement. Next year Diddy may very well see a boost in his position, especially with the launch of his REVOLT network and many extracurricular ventures.

Jay Z who snuck into the Top 20 portion of the list, had gross-earnings of $ 42 million. He released his Magna Carta Holy Grail album in July and will likely see an improvement on next years list. Aside from the album that had Jay Z partnering with Samsung, other ventures that may help the next go around include his Legends of Summer Tour, Roc Nation Sports venture and his Barney’s Collection.

Dr. Dre who sits just outside the Top 20 positions grossed an average of $ 40 million. An impressive number when factoring in that the mogul has not released any new music or toured between the consideration time period. Dre’s Beats By Dre electronic venture with fellow entrepreneur and Interscope Records’ head, Jimmy Iovine, continues to see growing profitable margins. Last year Dr. Dre topped Forbes Hip-Hop list, beating out both Diddy and Jay by a large margin.

Also appearing on the list was Madonna and Lady Gaga who battled it out for the top two spots, while Taylor Swift lands at #8.
