According to reports the rap mogul, P.Diddy topped @Forbes magazine’s 2014 list of Hip-Hop’s Wealthiest Artists with a net worth of $700 million. The achievement, which puts Puffy/Diddy/ Daddy closer to becoming hip-hop’s first billionaire, can be considered familiar ground for Combs in light of him being number one on Forbes’ list since it started in 2011.

Regarding this fiscal cycle, Combs has seen his net worth increase by $120 million since the launch of his music channel, Revolt TV, last year.

Holding down the number two spot on the list is Dr. Dre with $550 million. The millions made from the success of his Beats by Dre headphones played a major role in the influential beatmaker’s standing on the list.

Ironically, Dre’s #2 ranking was occupied Jay Z, who was the #2 man on the list in 2013. This year, Jay claims the #3 spot with $520 million. The amount comes largely from Jay Z’s deal with Samsung to exclusively release his latest album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail.” A multi-million dollar paycheck last year in addition to the money made from royalties, touring and his Roc Nation imprint comprise the rest of the $520 million.

At number four is Cash Money Records co-founder Bryan “Birdman” Williams, who brought in $160 million. Rounding out the top five is 50 Cent with $140 million made. -@lolalissaa @iamReGGo #PDiddy #PuffDaddy #SeanCombs #50Cent #Forbes #CashMoney #BirdMan #JayZ #RocNation #DrDre #BeatsByDre #Wealthiest #Urban #HipHop #Rap #RnB #Houston #StyleMagazine #HoustonStyleMagazine #HoustonStyle #Music #Rapper #instaMusic #Pop #RapMusic #HSMMusic #TeamStyleMag #ForbesMagazine 💰💰💰 (at www.StyleMagazine.com)

The Knowles sisters have reunited in the Big Easy.

Photos posted on @Beyonce’s website Monday show the smiling siblings hanging out in New Orleans with their family. The pictures seem to illustrate that Bey wants everyone to know that she and her younger sister have put the past behind them, after footage of a clash between Beyonce’s husband Jay Z and Solange (@SaintRecords) at a Met Gala after-party was leaked earlier this month.

Solange lives in New Orleans with her boyfriend Alan Ferguson and 9-year-old son Daniel Julez, so the photos indicate Beyonce has been visiting her sister at her home over the weekend.
Beyonce shared several more images from the get-together, including one of Jay Z having a laugh next to Ferguson as young Daniel runs out of frame. The singer’s daughter Blue Ivy also appears in another image that shows the group sitting around a table at what appears to be a brunch gathering.

The pop star’s latest photo sharing update comes days after she, her husband and sister issued a joint statement to The Associated Press about the elevator fight at the Standard hotel. -@iamReGGo #Urban #HipHop #Rap #RnB #Houston #StyleMagazine #HoustonStyleMagazine #HoustonStyle #Music #Beyonce #instaMusic #Pop #JayZ #HSMMusic #TeamStyleMag #Solange #NewOrleans #BeyHive #TheCarters #Knowles #Celebs #CelebStyle (at www.StyleMagazine.com)

It is with a heavy heart that we acknowledge the passing of two highly influential figures in dance and hip hop music over the weekend.
DJ Rashad Hanif Harden (pictured, left), key innovator in the world of Chicago footwork, was found dead in his apartment Saturday afternoon. He was 34. Though an autopsy Sunday proved inconclusive, police say drugs and paraphernalia were found on the scene.

DJ Rashad was the founder of Chicago’s Teklife crew and a longtime affiliate of Hyperdub Records, who released his full-length Double Cup in late 2013. His final release, the We On 1 EP, is out today via Houston-based label Southern Belle.
In other news, old-school hip hop hitmaker DJ EZ Rock (born Rodney Bryce, pictured right) also passed over the weekend. Details are currently scarce and the cause of death is unknown.

Alongside Base, EZ Rock was best known for the 1988 hit single It Takes Two. -@iamReGGo #RIP #RestInPeace #RIPDJRashad #RIPDJEZRock #DJEZRock #DJRashad #Discjockey #HipHopLegends #Urban #HipHop #Rap #Singer #Songwriter #RnB #Houston #StyleMagazine #HoustonStyleMagazine #HoustonStyle #Music #instaMusic #Pop #NewMusic #HSMMusic #TeamStyleMag #Chicago (at www.StyleMagazine.com)

There was buzz earlier this month that supercouple Jay Z and Beyoncé might tour together…And now it’s true!

Beyoncé posted a note on her site with tour dates. She and Jay Z are wearing ski masks for the On the Run tour.

It kicks off on June 25 in steamy Miami.

They will stop in Houston on July 18th at the Minute Maid Park!
It will be the first joint tour for the Drunk in Love duo. Jay Z’s Magna Carter World Tour ended in January, while Beyoncé finished her highly successful Mrs. Carter trek last month.

The two must love life on the road! #StyleFam, will you be purchasing your tickets?! -@iamreGGo #Urban #HipHop #Rap #Singer #Songwriter #RnB #Houston #StyleMagazine #HoustonStyleMagazine #HoustonStyle #Music #Beyonce #JayZ #SummerTour #BeyHive #Rapper #ShawnCarter #MjnuteMaidPark #OnTheRunTour #instaMusic #Tour #HSMMusic #TeamStyleMag #Yonce #TheCarters #PopCulture #Pop (at www.StyleMagazine.com)

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 12 year since Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (May 27, 1971 - April 25, 2002) died after a car accident in Honduras. The late TLC rapper and singer left a legacy of great music and fond memories.
Late last years, thanks to VH1′s biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, and Lil Mama did a stand up job portraying the pint-sized artist with the big heart, we were all reminded how unfortunate he untimely passing truly was. As the time of her death she was a mere 30-years-old.

Today, we remember a Hip Hop, R&B, & Rap Icon, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. - @iamReGGo #RIPLeftEye #LisaLopes #LeftEye #TLC #TBoz #Chili #ATL #AtlantaGa #GirlGroup #BestSelling #GrammyWinner #RIP #RestInPeace #Urban #HipHop #Rap #Singer #Songwriter #RnB #Houston #StyleMagazine #HoustonStyleMagazine #HoustonStyle #Music #instaMusic #Pop #HSMMusic #TeamStyleMag 👼🙏 (at www.StyleMagazine.com)
