    We've been scraping up every detail about Kendrick Lamar's highly anticipated follow up to good kid, m.A.A.d city, as the details have been scarce. Last week Kendrick's TDE label mate SZA spoke briefly on the album, but as far as the rapper himself, he's keeping everything tightly under wraps.

    While he didn't actually release an album last year, Kendrick Lamar managed to put the rap game in a stir. "Control" kept the rapper in the conversation throughout 2013, but in the new year, the rapper has been a little more low-key. One would assume that this is because K.Dot is getting ready to drop his highly anticipated follow-up to good kid, m.A.A.d city.

    Dr. Dre took Kendrick Lamar under his wing in 2012 when the then-rising rapper signed to Aftermath, and now K. Dot is veritable rap star and hip-hop darling. Although Dre's musical output may not be what it once is, he's still keeping his foot firmly within the rap game by forever signing the next best thing.

    Forbes has announced the top 5 wealthiest rappers in 2013 based on their net worth. Naturally, everyone on the list has ventured beyond the world of hip hop to amass their wealth, but all are still involved with the rap game in some way. Unsurprisingly Diddy has topped the list once again, mainly to do with his Ciroc Vodka empire. Check out the list of the five wealthiest rappers, along with their net worth below. Also take a look at the Forbes issued video which breaks down each of the rap moguls' fortunes.

    In recent times, Forbes' annual list of hip hop's five wealthiest artists has become less of a race and more of an established pantheon, and this year's no different. With the exception of two artists switching between the fourth and fifth spots, 2015's list is identical to last year's. With the exception of Birdman (who moved from fourth to fifth place on the list), everyone is worth more this year.

    Kanye West, who is scheduled to speak at the Cannes Lions Music Festival later this week, also participated in a panel discussion yesterday with Steve Stoute and Ben Horowitz. The discussion covered topics such as Dr. Dre's deal with Apple, Kanye's desire to redesign Instagram, his need to always work with '#1', and the perfectionism that went into his wedding photo (the most 'liked' Instagram photo of all time). Read some choice excerpts from the characteristically quotable Kanye below. On spending 4 days shooting his wedding photo:

    Parody headlines are getting a lot of mileage these days. Most recently an article which joked about Kanye West comparing himself to the late Nelson Mandela went viral after many took it literally. This could be attributed to weak satire, readers being too quick to believe everything they see, or perhaps most likely, parody sites banking on misunderstanding to generate page views. The blame may fall squarely on the readers in the case of this most recent Dr. Dre story however, as it's a little too ridiculous not to question.

    Ab-Soul, Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolboy Q, and Jay Rock are all forces to be reckoned with on their own, but when they come together like Voltron to form Black Hippy, it's something truly special. A full length project from the group has always been hinted at, but it seems things are still up in the air at this point. In a new interview with SkeeTV, Ab-Soul spoke of how Black Hippy came together, as well as his idea that the group could take the reigns on Dr. Dre's long-delayed album, Detox.
