Who Will Be Hip-Hop 1st Billionaire?

With a net worth of around $550 million, Diddy has been picked by Forbes as the front runner to become hip-hop’s first billionaire.

However, the Bad Boy CEO does have competition. Jay-Z ($450 million), Dr. Dre ($250 million), Birdman ($110 million) and 50 Cent ($100 million) are all in the running.

Birdman thinks he will beat Diddy to the Forbes 400 list.

I think Young Money Cash Money would be the first billion-dollar brand in hip-hop,” said Birdman in an email message to Forbes. “We strong and growing every day as a brand and fast. Within the next few years we will be billionaires.”

Meanwhile 50 Cent sees Hov as his main competition. He told Forbes’ Zack O’Malley Greenburg, that he and Jay-Z use each other for motivation.

We use each other,” 50 explained. “If you’re in a category, you have to find someone you respect enough to consider a competitor. And then you use each other in positive ways. They make a good move, you make a good move. If there’s nobody for that, then there’s no inspiration.

50 did concede that Jigga has an unfair advantage.

He cheated,” 50 said, grinning. “See, he hired this girl …

Who do you think will get to a billion first?

NFL’s MVP: Michael Vick Or Tom Brady?

With only two games left in the NFL regular season, fans of the better squads are starting to daydream about the playoffs. Also speculation ramps up about which players will get coveted awards like Rookie Of The Year and Most Valuable Player.

The MVP race is going to most likely be decided between Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick and New England Patriots signal caller Tom Brady.

Both are enjoying stellar seasons, leading their teams to the top of their respective divisions.

The Pats have an AFC leading 12 wins with only 2 losses. While the Eagles, coming off a stunning come from behind win over the New York Giants last Sunday are 10-4.

Vick’s season has been remarkable, especially when you consider the fact he wasn’t even expected to play much this year. At the beginning of the season he was playing second string to Kevin Kolb. If not for a Kolb injury in the first game of the year, Vick might have given the chance to prove that he’s an even better player now that he was prior to going to jail for dog fighting.

Vick has passed for 2,755 yards, with 20 touchdowns and a passer rating of 103.6. Add to that his rushing statistics of 613 yards at an average of 6.7 yards per carry with 8 tds and it’s easy to see why he could win MVP.

But Brady is having just as good of a season with far less offensive talent around him. Vick is playing with a talented young running back, LeSean McCoy and two dynamite wide receivers in Desean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin.

After Randy Moss was traded following week 4, Brady’s only proven player left on offense was Wes Welker.

The Patriots QB has thrown for 3,561 yards, 31 touchdowns with only 4 interceptions in 449 attempts. His passer rating of 109.9 in incredible.

Brady has thrown 292 passes in a row without an interception. This Sunday against the Buffalo Bills if he throws 17 more passes without an int he will break a 19 year old NFL record set by Bernie Kosar.

Both Vick and Brady are deserving of the MVP Award, but there can only be one. Cast your vote below for the player you think deserves it the most.
