It was only a month ago when Dirty Money's "Coming Home" was certified Platinum by the RIAA, marking 1 million units sold in the United States.

According to the Billboard charts released today, "Coming Home" has now been certified at 2x Platinum, confirming 2 million units sold in the U.S.

This is exceptionally meaningful. There have been only 3 singles released by Bad Boy that have been certified at 2X Platinum or higher: Diddy's "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down" (2x) and "I'll Be Missing You" (3x) and Yung Joc's "It's Goin' Down" (3x). A multi-platinum certification is a big deal and this is underscored by the fact that, with all of the hits Bad Boy has had, there have only been four in the company's history.

Beyond the company, it's important for Diddy, as well. No one can take this away: "Coming Home" ranks among his biggest hits in a career of hits. "Coming Home" fits in nicely with the list of Diddy singles that have been certified by the RIAA, including "Hello Good Morning" (Gold), "Shake Ya Tailgeather" (Gold), "Satisfy You" (Gold),
"Come With Me" (Platinum), "Victory" (Gold), "Been Around the World" (Platinum), "I'll Be Missing You" (3x Platinum) and "Can't Nobody Hold Me Down" (2x Platinum).

Forbes has updated their annual list of the world's most powerful celebrities. Diddy finds himself at #52, a 16 spot upward move from last year.

Forbes continues to maintain a "hip-hop impresario" category and Diddy ranks second in it, following Jay-Z, who dropped from #15 to #38. Other members of the category include Eminem (#71), Kanye West (#76) and Lil' Wayne (#85).

There are five subcategories that the celebrities are ranked on: money, TV/radio mentions, press mentions, social media presence and web coverage. Diddy excels in the web and social categories, where he ranked #29 and #31, respectively. He's #47 in money, #51 in TV/radio and #66 in press.

In April, Maybach Music Group's website listed Diddy among the four member outfit's collaborative album, "Self Made, Vol. 1." He was to be featured on Pill's "Pacman" alongside Rick Ross.

The website was later updated to remove Diddy's name and now we have the confirmation: Complex magazine has an exclusive premiere of the album and Diddy is not featured on the record.

FADER has an illuminating interview with Diddy focused on The Notorious B.I.G. Their first meeting, Biggie's character and the void that was left after he passed away. Must read.

What had you heard about Biggie before you met him? He was in The Sourceís Unsigned Hype. They said he was ill, but I donít think they really understood how ill he was. But also at the same time, it wasnít like everybody out there had labels. It wasnít no competition. It wasnít like another label wanted to sign him, because he didnít have that look. And also, his style. He wasnít trying to spit no radio R&B-friendly records.

Diddy and Dirty Money's "Coming Home Tour" has concluded. Initially announced with 20 dates, the group only made it to just 12, canceling 6 dates due to logistics, 1 date for unknown reasons and the final date in Phoenix due to Diddy being under the weather.

"I guess I pushed it too far because I literally can't get outta bed," Diddy wrote on Twitter. I'm sorry Phoenix. I regretfully have to cancel the show. I'm so sorry. Y'all don't know how sorry I am. I've never been this sick in my life - refund information will be posted on diddydirtymoney.com later today. Again, I'm sorry. Going back to bed now to fight this flu. F***!"
