As expected, Diddy and The Hitmen have advanced to the second round of Vibe's "The Greatest Hip-Hop Producer of All Time!" tournament. They received 88% of the vote in their first round match-up with Herbie Luv Bug. Only Dr. Dre (91% over DJ Toomp), Kanye West (91% over The Heatmakerz) and Timbaland (89% over Polow Da Don) held a wider margin of victory in all of the 32 matches.

Next up, they will face Teddy Riley, one of Diddy's mentors, who advanced over Kay Gee, 71% to 29%. As I said last round, I don't see how one man can be expected to match up with a team as large as The Hitmen. Riley has done amazing things, but against all of The Hitmen? I just don't see it.

Interestingly, I noticed that Vibe has removed Steve "Rhythm" Clarke from their list of The Hitmen. I had mentioned earlier that I had never heard him mentioned as one of The Hitmen.

But, they also removed Chucky Thompson and Daven "Prestige" Vanderpool, who were both definitely part of The Hitmen as well as Harve "Joe Hooker" Pierre and added Buckwild which, according to his MySpace is accurate. I'm unclear on if Harve Pierre was actually signed to Bad Boy as a producer.

That confusion aside, you can now vote on the Vibe website. If Diddy and The Hitmen advance, the next round will start on April 26.
