Bad Boy CEO Diddy will help kick-off the launch of a new Hard Rock club in Las Vegas, Nevada called Vanity and has revealed some possible New Year's Eve plans.
While keeping details scarce, Puff also promised to host an event at the venue close to January 2nd.
"[The] Hard Rock is opening a club and I'm supposed to be opening up that new club for them," he revealed in an interview. "I'm opening up the club so, you know, that's pretty big in itself...I may be out here [on New Year's Eve], I may be shooting a television special. I can't give you any more details, that's breaking news. I'm the Black [Frank] Sinatra. I'm supposed to be out here. I used to come to Vegas maybe once every other year. I've been out here already four times this year. This is the most I've been out here." (Las Vegas Sun)
Diddy also hyped his Las Vegas visit over the weekend via Twitter.
"Going live from Vegas with @itsrayj..check us out...Lets Go!!!," he wrote Saturday (November 14) night. " Xs crioc boys in the building!!!! Let's go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who's in vegas ???? Where you at? What you doin? It's a movie here with my boy @DJ_Franzen from the BAY at XS Las Vegas! Make sure y'all follow him especially if u come to Vegas." (Diddy's Twitter)
In addition to Jay-Z previously opening and selling his 40/40 Las Vegas club, Nelly previously had plans to launch a variety show based in the popular city.
"Nelly's Night in Vegas," a weekly talkshow-variety hybrid series, would feature Nelly performing and interacting with other celebrities. 25/7's Dave Broome is set to executive produce along with Nelly and "The Daily Show" co-creator Madeleine Smithberg. (Entertainment Weekly)
Diddy was recently ranked at No. 2 on Forbes' Hip-Hop Cash Kings List 2009.
Jay-Z raked in a reported $35 million starting in June 2008, from touring and other business ventures. Although his earnings were down substantially from last year's $85 million, he still managed to edge out fellow mogul Sean "Diddy" Combs, who came in at No. 2, with $30 million. Third place went to Kanye West with a respectable $25 million, earned through profits from his 808's and Heartbreaks album and 'Glow In The Dark' tour. 50 Cent landed at No. 4 with approximately $20 million, a steep drop from $100 million in 2007.
