Sean “Diddy” Combs Puff Daddy dusts off the mic with his first solo single in nearly four years, “Big Homie.” The Bad Boy boss proclaims his supreme status on the boastful anthem featuring Rick Ross.

He has been working on a new project entitled MMM, which he’s been teasing on social media.

Nobody

Rick Ross channels the Notorious B.I.G. on his remake of the rap legend’s 1997 Life After Death album cut “You’re Nobody (Til Somebody Kills You),” which is set to appear on his album Mastermind.

Before the NBA’s greatest players hit the court, Pharrell tipped off Sunday’s All-Star Game with a 20-minute medley of his greatest hits featuring some special guests. The Grammy-winning producer provided the soundtrack to the player introductions beginning with his 2003 single “Frontin’.”

Nelly emerged to perform his Neptunes-produced hit “Hot in Herre” before Skateboard P continued with “I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me).”

Diddy and Busta Rhymes helped turn up New Orleans’ Smoothie King Center with “Pass the Courvoisier, Part II.” But instead of the usual lyrics, they switched things up for 2014, chanting “Pass the Ciroc this way.”

Pharrell (sans Robin Thicke) made his way through the crowd for “Blurred Lines,” and his fellow N.E.R.D. bandmate Chad Hugo joined him on keyboard for “Rock Star.”

“Let’s take it back to the essence, Chad,” said P.

Snoop Dogg hit the stage with “Beautiful,” and the Western Conference players entered to “Drop It Like It’s Hot.”

For the closing number, Pharrell donned his famous hat in red while performing “Get Lucky” and his top 10 hit “Happy” as Diddy, Busta, Nelly, and Snoop danced onstage.

“No words for how grateful I am these legends joined me 2nite,” tweeted Pharrell.

Justin Bieber has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons, but that hasn’t stopped him from turning up. On Wednesday night, the “Confident” singer hit Vanquish Lounge in Atlanta with model Chantel Jeffries and his very own hip-hop entourage including Diddy, Rick Ross, and Jermaine Dupri.

He entered with a hoodie, but it wasn’t long before he stripped shirtless, sipping from an AQUAhydrate bottle and rocking gold chains around his neck. With a blunt in hand, Rozay popped bottles of Belaire Rosé champagne, while Diddy threw his arm around Bieber. Cassie, Wale, and Stalley were also spotted in the VIP section.

After the club, they brought the party to the studio. “Back in my second home. Good to be back. Focused on building up positive energy,” Bieber tweeted earlier in the day.

On Tuesday, the Biebs stopped by T-Pain’s house. “Say what you want about @justinbieber but that man is about to drop some of the best music I’ve heard in years. YEARS!!” tweeted Pain.
