Not our typical content, but it’s time to shine some light on one of the best CEOs to ever do it, Jeff Bezos. The Amazon founder bought The Washington Post today for $250 million. He’s looking to invent new ways to spread media in the company and had this to say about the acquisition. Click HERE for more info.
“We will need to invent, which means we will need to experiment. Our touchstone will be readers, understanding what they care about – government, local leaders, restaurant openings, scout troops, businesses, charities, governors, sports – and working backwards from there. I’m excited and optimistic about the opportunity for invention.”
Looks like the deal that has been talked about all weekend is finally going through. Yahoo’s financial board has approved the $1.1 billion acquisition of Tumblr which will officially be announced on Monday. Yahoo was really the only company going after the blogging platform and still offered such a large amount. Tumblr CEO David Karp will stay at Yahoo for four more years and make sure everything flows the right way. Click HERE for the full story.
Looks like another startup just made a lot of money thanks to a very powerful company. Remember when FB bought Instagram for $1 Billion? Well now Microsoft has bought Yammer, which is a Facebook type of website for business. The final selling price was $1.2 Billion. Someone just has a VERY huge pay day.

With the success of Meek Mill’s new mixtape and it being his birthday today Rick Ross went out and bought the boy a new Range Rover. Here’s the footage.
One of the major reasons for why the Hornets have been playing so bad is that they currently don’t have an owner, so making trades and all that is more difficult. Apparently things are about to turn around because Saints owner Tom Benson just bought the team for $338 Million, or at least that’s the talk of the town. For more information click here.
The Game just Tweeted this picture of a Louis Vuitton box car that he bought for his daughter on Valentine’s Day. The price of this little present was $11,399.
Birdman seems like such a nice dude. Gives out turkeys, makes Superstar artists, and then buys them Bentleys to celebrate their success. In this next video he gets them for Lil’ Wayne and Mack Maine. Looks like that $5 million bet didn’t hurt him a bet.
Drake sold some condos in Miami and is now living in Los Angeles at his new mansion which was $9 million. The place features 6 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a tennis court, wine cellar, volleyball court, 24-seat theatre, and a 5-stall horse facility with a riding arena. Whoa.

Sometimes when you’re not looking the best news can come to you. I was just browsing through my Twitter news feed and saw that Waka Flocka tweeted the picture above. The caption he added to the photo was “U Kno its time 2 turn up #$quadlife”, besides the great grammatical skills that Waka offers, I think this means he got a new Maybach. Could just be a picture he took of some car in a drive way, but who knows. Can’t be makin’ that much off Fererrari Boyz.
So for those of you hating on Soulja Boy, you can stop now. The dude still has a crazy amount of money from his Soulja Boy dance days and now he just went out and bought himself a new jet… it was $55 million. Thought this news was pretty interesting considering the fact that a lot of people say Soulja Boy is struggling. Hopefully the news is true too, you know how people just try and stunt all the time but everything is rented haha.
