Pretty soon, Puff Daddy P.Diddy Diddy Sean Combs is going to pull a Prince and become "the artist formerly known as..." 

Oh wait. Like today. Sean Combs is Puff Daddy once again.

He revealed the change back to the name that helped make him famous in a one-minute trailer for his upcoming new release, "Big Homie," featuring Rick Ross and French Montana.

The name change comes as part of his new album, reportedly titled MMM, which will be his first since 2010's Last Train to Paris.

"Big Homie," the first single off the album, features Rick Ross and French Montana. The video shows the rappers suspended in various situations until a gunshot rings out and the camera begins featuring stacks of cash. The full video will hit the world on March 31.

It's ON now.

Diddy just put Kendrick Lamar on BLAST on Instagram, taking issue with a claim he makes on Big Sean's "Control" where he calls himself the new King of New York.

Diddy disagrees. In hilarious, meme-tastic form:

Diddy Mocks Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick Lamar's verse of the Big Sean track - in which he SHREDS Lindsay Lohan, Drake, and everyone else - has been the talk of the web for the last 24 hours.

Diddy wasn't name-checked or threatened with murder (he's one of the few) on "Control," but he took issue with Lamar's lyrics about reigning over NYC.

That's Diddy's role, b!tch.

We'll leave the argument over who the real ruler of the Big Apple rap game is up to you, THGers ... but we have to give Diddy props for his retaliatory style.

Jay-Z had no comment, but based on the photo above, his pal's pretty much implying there's no daylight between their respective positions on Lamar.

Britney Spears and will.i.am are back with a remixed version of their hit "Scream & Shout" ... featuring Hit Boy, Waka Flocka Flame, Lil Wayne and Diddy!

While not nearly as catchy as the original, it doesn't lack for hip hop star power. Or Britney Spears and her British accent in a very short leather number.

Take a look below and see what you think ...

Yesterday, Eve courted controversy when she suggested that Britney does not actually appear on the song, a claim her camp vehemently denied.

Is that really Spears singing her part?

Jay-Z, Diddy and 50 Cent released "I Get Money (The Forbes 1-2-3 Billionaire Remix)" in '07, a celebration of their inclusion atop Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings list.

Five years later, the same three artists are in a more exclusive group - the Forbes Five, a list of hip-hop's wealthiest moguls - though no longer 1-2-3 in that order.

Which of the three earns the most? And who else made the Top 5?

DIDDY DIRTY MONEY

Diddy is the closest to becoming a billionaire, with a net worth of $550 million. The Bad Boy Records founder has been a mainstream mainstay for 15 years.

Thanks to his knack for self-promotion and outside business deals with Ciroc vodka, Sean John, Enyce, Blue Flame and other tech startups, he gets money.

A lot of it. And he's not even done. Diddy signed a deal with Comcast to launch cable channel Revolt in 2013. He'll own the channel outright. Cha-ching.

Jay-Z is #2 at $460 million. Unlike his fellow Forbes Five members, he still churns out music and goes on tour, most recently with pal Kanye West.

He sold his Rocawear clothing label for $204 million in 2007, signed a 10-year $150M deal with Live Nation in 2008, and co-owns the New Jersey Nets.

There's also his 40/40 Club chain, his ad firm Translation, cosmetics company Carol's Daughter and other businesses too numerous to list. Very rich.

American Idol delivered a pair of contrasting, impressive performance on its first finalist results show of the season last night.

First, Adam Lambert went acoustic on an inspiring version of "Aftermath," receiving a standing ovation for his effort.

Then, Diddy Dirty Money (we think that's his name these days) took to the stage, accompanied by Skylar Grey, and gave the audience a version of the hit "Coming Home." He also gave the contestants some advice:

"I would say you get out of life what you put into it. You have to keep on practicing, keep on rehearsing... Keep God first in your life and don't stop. Don't ever stop."
