Eminem, Dr Dre and Jimmy Iovine have come top of THE SOURCE's annual POWER 30 list - even though the American magazine has been at war with the trio.

The two rappers and the INTERSCOPE RECORDS co-chairman have been feuding with The Source - who they believe have a vendetta against them - since the magazine released a old tape of a young Eminem rapping misogynistic and racist lyrics last month (NOV03).

However, despite his placing at the top of the list, the magazine also states "critics" believe Eminem is "leading Hip-Hop down a dangerous path".

SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS is at number three in the list, whilst The Neptunes and the retiring Jay-Z also feature in the top ten.
