Diddy [Sean Combs] was named the highest earner, raking in $130m thanks to his deal with Ciroc vodka, the sale of one-third of Sean John for $70m, and a Bad Boy Family Reunion tour.

Bountifully helped by a £25 pay what you want purchase of last year's christmas record from a girl I was fucking at the time, which (as per the record notes) was donated to Crisis, the homelessness charity. Actually I think all of that £34 went to Crisis.

Actually, I am planning on (have been for a while) PM'ing you with something I'm still working on, with the hopes you could do something with it.

 

Hold tight - it's gonna change the world, man.

 

Also Kudos for the charity donation  :gummybear:

I like these odds. Bring it.

Personally profiting from sales of that record would have been profoundly at odds with the critiques contained within. And though hypocrisy is facet of the festive season that should quite legitmately be exposed to examination, the pastiche embodiment of such a trait was not my intention. Sincerity above everything.

He's so fucking cynical and nihilistic. It's music to signal Babel's impending demise.
