Complex and Vibe are reporting that Chris Lighty has died. Lighty was best known for founding Violator and managing artists like Mariah Carey, 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes and Diddy.

Diddy signed with Lighty in November of 2006, shortly after releasing his "Press Play" album.

Word of Lighty's passing spread rapidly through Twitter over the last hour. The circumstances surrounding his death have yet to be revealed.

It recently came to light that the Revolt brand, under which Diddy announced a TV network earlier this year, would also extend into films. If you follow Diddy on Twitter, you know that he's been promoting the new film "Lawless," starring Shia Laboeuf, Guy Pearce, Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy and Jessica Chastain.

That's no coincidence: Diddy tweeted last week that the movie is the "first venture of Revolt Films. In a brief interview with Access Hollywood, Diddy said that they participated as one of the film's financiers following its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival.

Update: Complex has updated their story and removed half of the tracks that were mentioned in the original. But, they still note that MGK played them 10 songs. I have reached out to the author of the article for comment.

Complex has a preview of Machine Gun Kelly's upcoming album, "Lace Up," based on 10 songs played for them by MGK himself. The tracks revealed include:

Save Me featuring Avenged Sevenfold
What I Do featuring Bun B
Lace Up featuring Lil' Jon
Stereo featuring The Kickdrums
All We Have featuring Anna Yvette
See My Tears
Demons featuring DMX
Edge of Destruction featuring Tech N9ne and Twista
Running featuring Planet VI
End of the Road featuring Matt Musto

"Save Me" is said to be the album's intro, a track that MGK has talked about previously, telling Rap-Up.com that it would feature "one of the greatest lead vocalists I've ever heard in my life" from "probably one of the greatest metal groups."

"['End of the Road'] will supposedly conclude the album," writes Complex's Eric Diep. It was self produced by MGK. The other songs that had not previously been revealed include "All We Have" and "Running." The rapper said in June that the set would feature a collaboration with Twista and Tech N9ne, but until now, we did not know the title of the track, which is "Edge of Destruction."

"Lace Up" will be released on October 9.

Last week, Bad Boy Records finally confirmed the signing of singer Megan Nicole, following hints going at least as far back as June.

Today, she released a video announcing the move herself. Interspersed with footage of her performing covers and her original "B-e-a-utiful," the clip features Nicole talking alongside Diddy, Havre Pierre and her manager, Johnny Wright.

Some long term Bad Boy fans may remember Wright from his appearances on the "Making the Band" series and his management of Danity Kane. He has also managed Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Janet Jackson, 'NSync and the Jonas Brothers among many other acts.

In June, Diddy tweeted that singer Megan Nicole was now part of the Bad Boy family. Today, it was officially announced via press release that the singer had signed to Bad Boy Records.

"Megan Nicole is a complete package that I am extremely excited to add to the Bad Boy roster," Diddy says in the release. "She is a talented singer, songwriter, musician, and entertainer. Megan Nicole is a perfect fit for the new future at Bad Boy."

"Megan is a great person, amazing artist, and an enormous talent all around," said Bad Boy President Harve Pierre. "She has done an incredible job on building a solid fan base and we are here to enhance that and ensure her dreams come true. Welcome home, Megan Nicole."

Coinciding with today's announcement, Nicole's "B-E-A-Utiful," a song she released last year, has been re-released on iTunes under Bad Boy/Interscope.

Back in March, Diddy and Shyne met in Paris following a widely reported reconciliation.

"I just feel real good about moving on with our relationship," he told MTV's Rob Markman then. "Me and son, we gonna get together in Paris. I'm in Paris right now. He's gonna come out here in a couple weeks and we're gonna sit at a roundtable, just as men. Just to sit down and break bread. It's been over 15 years I've known that dude."

Those feelings appear to have been short lived. According to HOT 97's Miss Info, Shyne called her to express dissatisfaction with Diddy and to release a diss track, "You're Welcome."

The song was recorded "a while ago," but he decided to release it now because he believes that Diddy failed to follow through on assurances that were made in conversations that they had. Namely, that the Bad Boy CEO would aide Shyne in his efforts to attain a United States Visa.

"The song me and Lil' Jon got is called 'Lace Up,'" he said. "I've never made a song called 'Lace Up." I was like, 'f*** it, we've got to do one.' When Lil' Jon came into the studio to do it, I was like 'you're not getting on the song to be the anthem of my movement if you don't truly understand this."

To educate him on the meaning of "Lace Up," MGK showed Lil' Jon tour footage, fan tattoo photos and messages from fans.

He would not put a name to the other collaborator, wanting it to be a surprise, but said that it was "one of the greatest lead vocalists I've ever heard in my life" from "probably one of the greatest metal groups."
