The Forbes Five: Meet Hip-Hop's Wealthiest Artists 2014


According to Forbes, Diddy, Dr Dre, Jay Z, Birdman and 50 cent are the richest Hip Hop artists in the world currently...in that order. Didddy is now worth $700million. Wow! See the full report below...

    Back in 2007, Sean “Diddy” Combs teamed with Jay Z and 50 Cent to create a song titled “I Get Money: Forbes 1-2-3 Billion Dollar Remix.” Less than a decade later, rappers are closing in on ten-figure fortunes, and he’s the nearest of the bunch.

    Diddy leads the pack with an estimated fortune of $700 million, an increase of $120 million over his net worth last year. The change comes largely from the addition of Revolt TV—the new, music-focused, multi-platform channel of which he’s the majority owner—to his already-hefty portfolio.

Thenetng - Wizkid, Waje part ways with manager Godwin Tom...

Wizkid and Godwin when the going was good
Pop stars Wizkid and Waje have allegedly parted ways with their manager Godwin Tom. NET gathered tonight, that Wizzy and Godwin Tom may have had a disagreement after a recent overseas trip to Dubai and the UK. Sources are saying Tom threw in the towel following the bitter spat, although we could not immediately confirm this. The popular music manager who has in the past managed acts like M.I and Show Dem Camp, has also parted ways with his other client Waje. The the cause of the business relationship breakdown between Waje and Godwin Tom is yet to be revealed, but we confirmed reliably it’s over for the duo who had a great relationship with plenty PDA. Godwin Tom has been dropping some cryptic comments on Twitter and Instagram which shows signs of frustration over the recent developments. ‘Fuck this shit… I’m done!’ Godwin Tom tweeted a few days ago. He’s told close friends he may consider taking a break from the Nigerian music scene to try his hands on other ventures. ‘I’m on the move and I can’t look back… No regrets at all!

Short Story - Passion of The gods


…While I walked in the sunlight, young and filled with the vigour of youth, I heard the fatal music in the reed at the bank of the Nile. I did not recognize the sound of this harp, and I had no fear, for I was in the full bloom of my manhood and secured in the affection of my beloved. The music was of surpassing beauty. Joyfully, I went to find the musician, and could not know that he was death and he has played his harp to summon me alone. Death sized me and bore me up in his skeletal harms towards the sun god, and I became one with the white light of his being. At a great distance I heard my beloved weep, but I could not see her and all the days of my life were as though they had never been. Then death set me down in a high place from which I could see the world like a shining round shield in the blue sea of the heavens. I saw all men and all creatures who had earlier lived. Like a mighty river, time ran backwards before mine eyes. For a hundred thousand years I watched their striving and their death. I watched all men go from death and old to infancy and birth. Time became more and more remote, going back until the birth and then before. At last there was no man upon the earth and only the gods existed. Yes, till the river of time flowed back beyond the time of the gods into nun, into the time of darkness and periodical chaos. The river of time could flow no further back and so reversed itself. Time began to run forward in the manner that was familiar to me from my days of life upon the earth, and I watched the passion of the gods play out before me. And then the first man and woman were born out of the creations of the creator and Adam and Eve gave the way for generations…
