Would it hurt for him to release Detox now? People would just buy that album because he's associated with Apple. What more does he want.

 

All he has to do is make sure he has a few songs with Eminem and Snoop Dogg. He's set.

Who has the better hip-hop albums Dre > Diddy

Impact in hip-hop Dre > Diddy

As a rapper who doesn't write their own lyrics Dre > Diddy.

Dre and Diddy both make more than Jay-Z but ask someone on the street and they'll say Jay-Z is the richest.

Most aliases, monikers, identities:

 

Dre < Diddy, P. Diddy, Puffy, Puff Daddy, and whatever else is in there that can be morphed.

That's a pretty damn impressive sale price for the headphones. Goes to show that the correct marketing can make a crappy product worth a lot of money.

It's decent. Just that other headphones are better with better price.
