    "My Rolex was a couple houses!" - Yung Mal

    "My Rolex was a couple houses!" - Yung Mal

    Hailing from the Zone 6 of Atlanta, Yung Mal is following in the footsteps of Gucci Mane, who he’s signed to. With the backing of 1017 Eskimo/Alamo Records, the “Fresh” rapper prides himself in freestyling off the dome, writing absolutely nothing down. While he came up alongside fellow Zone 6 native Lil Quill, he recently decided to focus on his own craft and independence.

    On the heels of the release of his debut solo mixtape Iceburg — with features from Guwop, Gunna, Lil GotIt, and Pi'erre Bourne — Yung Mal arrives in Los Angeles dripped out per usual from head to toe. If you love Atlanta trap, you’ll love Yung Mal. King Ice caught up with the 23-year-old to discuss his drip and his jewelry preferences.

    What’s the most expensive jewelry you’ve ever purchased?

    My Rolex, it was a couple houses. I don’t want to make that… because I know it’s kids who want a Rollie, but that shouldn’t be their main focus. A watch. Because you can get a watch for $7,000, you can get a watch for $17,000, or you can get a watch for $170,000. 


    What’s something everyone should have in their jewelry collection?

    I’m not really a big jewelry person like that. I got a couple chains and pieces or whatever, but I’m not tryna go spend all my money on jewelry. You know how some rappers got a jewelry fetish? I ain’t really too much into it like that.


    What record label had the most iconic chain in your opinion?

    Mines, Alamo Records. 1017. Because that’s all I know, I don’t know nothing else. The 1-5 chain, that’s where I’m from: Candler, Atlanta.

    How often are you shopping?

    I don’t go to the mall like that. I only go to the mall if I see something that I want. I don’t really buy my clothes from the mall because all my clothes be getting made for me. The shoes, I didn’t go to the mall. I ordered them online. But sometimes I might go in there and grab a pair. The majority of the time, I’ll just grab or order it online.


    Talk about your drip though.

    Drip to the heel. I used to didn’t have drip. I just be putting it together. I just be putting that shit together. Definitely plan on putting out my own merch. Start my own clothing line.


    TJ Jackson, Nephew of Micheal Jackson, Shares Most Expensive Jewelry He's Ever Bought!

    TJ Jackson, Nephew of Micheal Jackson, Shares Most Expensive Jewelry He's Ever Bought!

    Anyone related to the great late Michael Jackson is bound to be talented. Insert TJ Jackson, who is not only MJ’s nephew, but the youngest son of Tito Jackson from the Jackson 5. Currently one-third of 3T alongside his two brothers, the artist and musician creates music because he genuinely loves it — without any of the pressures that come with being part of music royalty. 

    Most recently, King Ice caught up with TJ Jackson who unleashed his new single “Insomnia,” which actually flips the negative connotation into a positive. Contrary to most artists, he actually doesn’t care much about jewelry… at all.

    What’s the most expensive jewelry you’ve ever purchased?

    I don’t really wear… probably an Apple Watch. I’ve never really been a jewelry person. Call it what it is, but I’ve always seen a different purpose for that money. Every time I see an expensive piece, guys wearing $50K, $60K chains, I just think about all the mouths it could’ve fed in Africa. I’m not the kind of guy that will wear that ever. I’m not the guy who’s gonna drive $150K car, ever. I’ve seen it. I’ve traveled and been too many places for that to sit well with me. 

    Do you have any go-to pieces in your jewelry collection? Maybe for any outfit or occasion?

    Honestly, no. I have a watch, but no. The most expensive thing I own jewelry-wise is probably $300 to $400, and that’s the way it’s gonna be.

    That’s the watch?

    That’s the watch, that’s it.

    What record label had the most iconic chain in your opinion?

    I still like Bad Boy. I grew up in that time period so seeing the Bad Boy emblem on a chain is still powerful — and it’s cool. For me, that whole Bad Boy… Death Row is pretty cool too. I don’t want to start another feud or anything, but those are two iconic ones. 

    What do you want your legacy to be?

    I want my legacy to be that I did things my way and it was solid. It was authentic, it was raw, it was real. I left this place, the world, better than when I got here. That’s important to me, I believe life is short. I lost my mother as a kid, lost my biggest inspiration in my uncle. That was the message they both had: do your thing to make this world a better place. 

    Red Carpet Looks From Rihanna's Diamond Ball in NYC

    Red Carpet Looks From Rihanna's Diamond Ball in NYC

    Rihanna hosted her fifth annual Diamond Ball in New York City last night - benefiting The Clara Lionel Foundation. Held at Cipriani Wall Street in Lower Manhattan, the red carpet was a fashion runway all on its own. Celebrities put on their most elegant and glamorous outfits for their grand entrance into the Ball. While some kept their accessories to a minimum, a few celebrities caught our eyes with their iced out looks.

    2 Chainz came through with an all-black suit - the perfect backdrop for his layering of necklaces - including a massive iced out basketball pendant hanging from a Cuban curb link chain. Down to his wrists, both were dressed with matching Cuban link and diamond tennis bracelets, as well as a classic time piece. 


    Not to be outdone by his wife, Offset, came through dripping in a navy blue tux with silver detailing which he complimented with various silver accessories - including, a hefty diamond rock on his ring finger and a couple cuban link bracelets to accompany his iced out watch.

    With a name like Moneybagg Yo, the rapper, decked out in a red suit and some black shades, was glistening on the red carpet with a pair of diamond stud earrings, iced out grillz (to keep that smile shining), and a few Cuban curb link chains to contrast with the black turtleneck under his suit. 


    Meek Mill wasn’t too flashy this year, keeping it pretty basic in a black suit, white collared shirt, and not tie - but in its place was a silver link chain. For Meek, we loved this simplistic approach. 

    Fat Joe brought some Latin flavor onto the red carpet with his light blue suit, button-downed shirt as a few silver chain peaked through. He also had each wrist glistening with a bracelet accessory and a silver watch. To top it off, he sported some dark tinted aviators. 


    Trae Tha Truth "I had one of the first 3D pieces ever."

    Trae Tha Truth "I had one of the first 3D pieces ever."

    Trae Tha Truth is a Houston legend. With a mantra to continue to excel, grow, and get better with each passing day, the H-town MC gives back in ways beyond the music. His activism efforts in saving the community from the floods directly coincides with the realness he spits into his rhymes.

    His projects offer a breath of fresh air into the hip-hop game, in this new age of social media antics and clout-chasing. Most recently, real name Frazier Thompson III unleashed a 12-track project titled Exhale, with no guest features. King Ice caught up with Trae Tha Truth at his album listening at Diamond on Fairfax.

    What is the most expensive jewelry you’ve ever purchased?

    I got so much jewelry, it don’t even make sense. I’m not really even into jewelry like that…

    You got chains on chains!

    Yeah but if I wore everything I had, it’d be a lot. Everything of mine costs. Everything’s real.

    Can you describe your jewelry style?


    Most iconic hip-hop chain?

    Probably some of the first ones. The Roots Aviators, I had one of the first 3D pieces ever. The Boondocks. The Trae face.

    What do you want your legacy to be?

    Whatever make my kids proud.
