10) Nas, 65 000$
The embodiment par excellence of US rap, which began in the mid-1990s with its equally historic Illmatic, Nas is one of those black American artists who questioned their ancestral roots and turned to the aesthetics of ancient Egypt, the cradle of African civilization, to affirm their plural identity.
While the rapper Nelly wears a miniature bust of Nefertiti, the lyricist from Queens has chosen a pendant representing the funerary mask of Tutankhamun. A pharaoh whose tomb, discovered at the beginning of the 20th century. It contained one of the most fabulous treasures 💲 of this period in history.
9) Yung Berg 70 000$
Yung Berg's decided to go for a modern look. Inspired by the famous franchise transformers. But why ... ? Because why not ! Yung Berg's chain has an estimated value of a Range Rover (70 000$). With a basic Cuban Link Chain and a fully iced out transformer. His look is pretty icey ❄️ ! Would you wear it ? let us know below in the comment section.
8) WAKA FLOCKA FLAME, 120 000$
Juaquin Bertholimule Malphurs was born in Queens in 1986. His family eventually moved to Riverdale, Georgia. He is the son of Debra Antney, former manager of Gucci Mane and CEO of So Icey/Mizay entertainment. The name "Waka" was given to him by his cousin, after a replica of Fozzie Bear (character from The Muppets). The name "Flocka Flame" was given to him by Gucci Mane, whom he has known since he was 19 years old.
Waka Flocka attracted attention in 2009 with the release of his first single O Let's Do It, which reached 62nd place on the Billboard Hot 100, and became a member of 1017 Brick Squad alongside Gucci Mane, OJ Da Juiceman, Frenchie and Wooh Da Kid. His debut album, Flockaveli, was released on October 5, 2010 and reached 5th place on the Billboard 200 🎵 in the first week after its release. Waka Flocka is named as one of the eight hottest MCs by MTV.
7) Lil Uzi Vert, 220 000$
Coachella is known to be the place of all eccentricities, and Lil Uzi Vert is a strong contender in this game. The rapper who exploded thanks to Bad & Boujee with Migos has indeed offered himself a $220,000 (about €206,000) iced out chain representing Marilyn Manson. 🤑
Although he had already told Complex magazine that he was a fan of the rock star, it was not thought that his real name Symere Woods would push fanaticism to that point. He even took advantage of the Californian festival to get his jeweller on stage to hand over his expensive madness 💎. More info about the chain on HYPEBEAST site.
6) Quavo (Migos) 250 000$
You might know Quavo, a member of the rap trio Migos, from the success of the group "Bad and Boujee". Or you might also know Quavo because he has one of the biggest and strangest iced out jewels: a giant diamond encrusted iced out chain representing Him as the leader holding the Remy rat from the animated film Ratatouille. 🐀
The chain landed Quavo on the best-dressed lists when he wore it at this year's Met Gala and I had questions. Mainly, how was this iced out jewelry made?
While the necklace is a piece created by jeweler Elliott Avianne 💎, who has designed jewelry for Nicki Minaj, Future and Ciara, Quavo's image as a chef holding a rat is actually based on an illustration by Maryland artist Bernard Rollins. 🎨
5) Kanye West, 250 000$
Kanye West never does things by halves, and this piece of jewellery, made by Jacob the Jeweler, is there to attest to the Chicago rapper's madness of grandeur. While some wear reasonably sized pendants, Kanye opts for a life-size bust of Horus, the Egyptian falcon-headed god.
According to ancient myths, this heir to the Egyptian throne came close to death on several occasions while fighting for his sovereignty, a course that is strangely reminiscent of that of Yeezy. 👟
In 2002, Kanye West himself escaped the great reaper in a serious car accident that marked a major artistic turning point in the life of the demiurge rapper, who now sits on the "Throne" alongside his friend Jay Z.
4) T-Pain, 410 000$
When it comes to iced out jewelry💎 (and subtlety), no one is more explicit than T-Pain, star of hip-hop and featurings. In 2009, while the United States is going through a painful period of recession, the king of the autotune runs the red carpets on which he displays a scandalously big necklace 💰, of which he is not a little proud. His "Big Ass Chain" is in the news and earns him the wrath of his colleagues who point to his indecency.
T-Pain was stung to the core and said: "4.5 kilos. 197 carats. Only the real thing, because I don't wear a knock-off. $410,000. 32 cars. My oldest daughter is five years old and already has $4 million in her bank account. I wouldn't be spending that kind of crap if my family wasn't already on the hook.
Don't judge me by what I buy. Judge me by what I do, because there are a lot of artists out there who only think about themselves and neglect their families. A golden man... 🤑
3) Pharrell Williams, 1 000 000$
Made to order (for Skateboard P in 2006 🛹) by the illustrious rap game iced out jeweler Jacob the Jeweler, this necklace paved with precious stones features the emblematic logo designed by Pharrell Williams for the BBC (Billionaire Boys Club 💸) clothing brand at the time of N*E*R*D.
The creation of the iced out chain is also the work of a goldsmith: the links (eighteen in all), which are reminiscent of the "coffee beans" of the iced out jeweller Cartier, are inlaid with rubies, diamonds 💎, emeralds or sapphires.
This iced out jewel with a slightly too bold design cost Pharrell a million dollars 💲. And the musician, who has been crowned the best-dressed man in the world on several occasions, no longer even wears it today.
2) Mike Jones, 1 000 000$
From the pendant to the smallest part of its twisted chain, this jewel entirely paved with diamonds of more than 100 carats has nothing to envy the rivers of the greatest divas.
Stamped "Ice Age 🧊", named after its owner's label, and topped with the famous crown of the watchmaker Rolex, this chain, estimated at a million dollars 💲, did not last long and disappeared into thin air in 2009, almost three years after it was made.
The 35-year-old Texan rapper says it was close friends who stole his precious iced out pendant while he was sleeping after a drunken night out. Mike Jones had his chain insured and lost his delusions of grandeur in the process.
1) Rick Ross, 1 500 000$
Nobody is better at dripping 💧 than Rick Ross. Already the owner, among other jewellery, of a million-dollar chain bearing his effigy, Rozay has surpassed himself this time around by wearing a necklace bearing his effigy himself: chainception at its peak. 💎
Rumours have been going around about the price of the Pendant, estimated at a million and a half dollars. Bo$$. 💲
