      Fat Meech Reveals His Favorite Chain

      Fat Meech Reveals His Favorite Chain

      Fat Meech views music as a coping mechanism, an opportunity to tell his stories of growing up in South Central Los Angeles. Creating his own lane of melodic hip-hop, real name Demitri Williams sees the studio as an outlet to deal with his trauma, putting his heart and soul into his lyrics.


      Most recently, he released “Brothers 2,” the sequel to his viral single “Brothers.” With each release, he proves himself even further on why he belongs in the rap game. King Ice caught up with Fat Meech in downtown Los Angeles to discuss his jewelry preferences.


       

      How would you define your style as it relates to jewelry?

      Cuban links. I love Cuban links, I got some on right now. I got a custom piece made by Custom Clarity, they’re in the jewelry district down here. I got this one for my grandpa when he passed on October 15, 2019, so recently.

      Were you guys close?

      Super. I like Cubans and I like rope chains. I have to get me some rope chains. But the solid ones, these new ones are hollow. I don’t like hollow jewelry. I can’t do it.

      Do you feel like as an artist you have to wear jewelry?

      Not really, because there’s plenty of artists who pop out and don’t wear nothing. They just hoodied up with bars. It’s not even a testament to the music thing, to me it’s a hustling thing. Where I’m from, all your jewelry is a trophy.  If you got a big ol’ chain on, “he does something. What does he do?” It’s always a question. That n*gga got money, what he on? That’s my thing.

      Nicky Bondz Show's Off His Rolex

      Nicky Bondz Show's Off His Rolex

      Nicky Bondz isn’t your average artist, he’s got a degree in psychology. Even further, he went to grad school for his Masters and is now studying for a Doctorate in the field. While his passion for music triumphs the rest of his endeavors, he’s able to unite the two worlds and release feel-good anthems for his growing fanbase.

       

      Most recently, he released his new single titled “Satellites,” in perfect timing for cuffing season. Nicky arrives in Burbank, California with a Rollie and multiple David Yurman bracelets on his wrist. Fans can look forward to his forthcoming project VIZION 2020.

       

      How would you describe your style as it relates to jewelry? 

      I know people in the hip-hop game probably wear a lot more jewelry than I do, but should I say what I’m wearing right now? I got a Rolex on. 


      How much was the Rollie?

      I mean, it was enough. I got the Oyster Perpetual Rolex. I have 3 David Yurman busts, I have 2 David Yurman bracelets on. I have an up and coming designer William K, which is a cool leather bracelet. It almost has a Louis look. Then I got a rose gold Cuban link chain. 


      Where’s this money from? 

      It’s coming here and there. I put a lot of money in, let’s put it that way. I put a lot of money to get where I am. There’s a lot of investing involved. It’s good when things start to pay off. It fuels all the hard work that you did that nobody gets to see behind closed doors. The passion, the grinding, the staying up late at night, the writing. Some nights you get writer's block and you can’t, the frustration. No one, everyone sees the glamour but they don’t see the hard work that goes on so that’s the last thing I’m worried about is jewelry. I’d be the same person I am now if I had just a white tee on from Walmart. I’d be the same guy, it doesn’t matter what I’m wearing. I appreciate you if you’re trying to tell me you like my swag. [laughs]

      KBeaZy: " Fyed Up chain on the way"

      KBeaZy: " Fyed Up chain on the way"

      At 19 years old, KBeaZy doing what most producers are dreaming off. Hailing from the small town of Kalamazoo, Michigan, real name Keegan Bach has dedicated his entire life to making beats, something he truly enjoys down to the core. Placements include Roddy Ricch, Chief Keef, Smokepurpp, and many more. 


      In fact, Juice WRLD’s last Triller video on Instagram is a snippet of a song KBeaZy produced. He’s also organically built his own fanbase on Youtube, with over 111K subscribers watching his tutorials on how to make certain beats. 


      King Ice caught up with KBeaZy to discuss his chain in the works.


      As a producer, do you own any flashy jewelry?

      I'm about to cop a chain low key. Fyed Up chain on the way! Yes and no. Honestly, no. I know some of the biggest producers… there's two sides to it. Some producers wear flashy jewelry, have a tag on every song. Then some producers you wouldn’t even know, who don't have tags. Have no jewelry, wear regular clothes, but they’re worth a trillion dollars. It really depends however you want to do it. 


      If you could make any jewelry in the world, what would you have?

      I'm not a huge jewelry guy to be honest. I like colorful stuff. I like my Fyed Up chain that I'm getting made.


      Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

      Same thing honestly, making beats everyday. But hopefully in a mansion somewhere with a  view and a pool, making beats everyday. With more business ventures too, but still making beats.

      Louis King Says Dipset Has The Most Iconic Chain 🏆

      Louis King Says Dipset Has The Most Iconic Chain 🏆


      Louis King rocks a gold KING ring on his left hand, fitting for how he carries himself and perceives life. Beyond rapping, the Los Angeles native served as tour manager for the highly-favored Earl The Sweatshirt. 


      Having toured over 20 countries and sharing the stage with Earl and Anderson .Paak, King sees his purpose as more than just touching people with his music, but giving back to his community in ways reminiscent of the late Nipsey Hussle. His work with aim4hearts.org centers around emotional literacy especially amongst those who are incarcerated.


      Most recently, King released his highly-anticipated new album De la West Los, paying homage to his roots in West LA. King Ice caught up with Louie to discuss his treasured gold ring that reads KING in all caps.


      Talk about the gold KING ring you have on.

      This was given to me by a professional soccer player named Leo (Alessandro Canale). He plays for the USA team, he’s big. He's made shit. We have a group called Generation West, which is a community organization: our Crenshaw, our marathon, our shit. Our community we put people together with, we’d throw events. We’d throw all the Westside events like Brownies and Lemonade. 


      He knew us from the streets. I didn't even know he was a professional soccer player, he’s just the homie. He came to an event one day, he had it molded. Gave one to me, gave one to my bro (I still work with). He’s management, his shit said "cuzzo" in gold. It was a gift, that shit felt good. Shit’s heavier than a motherfucker. It comes with a certain power. I won a national championship playing football and lost my ring. Maybe it got stolen, I don't know.

      In your opinion, what hip-hop label had the most iconic chain? 

      That's tough. I want to go into Dipset, but then I also want to go even before that with the Cubans. I'm into the classic shit. But I'm not even on material shit like that to keep it 100. You see me, I don't even wear a chain. It's not even on that. When it comes time to stunt, we can stunt. But at the same time, I know my value. This shit is a gift. I like the flashiness of it, but I also like to stay [grounded].

      Fashion Comes Natural To Trinidad James

      Fashion Comes Natural To Trinidad James

      Trinidad James is a walking fashion icon. In 2020, he released “All Gold Everything” which took over the rap game full force. The Atlanta native has since evolved tremendously, keeping a strong head on his shoulders and continuing to do what he loves most: create art.


      Trinidad isn’t here to talk about what he’s going to do, he just does it. Most recently, he released his brand new single “James Woo Woo,” his latest alter ego which cares for humanity as a whole. Additionally, he continues to kill it as a host on Complex’ Full Size Run, approaching the 6th season of the sneaker talk show.


      King Ice caught up with Trinidad at Soho House in West Hollywood, who was decked out from head to toe in style. 


       

      Can you talk about your love for fashion?

      It’s natural. Fashion for me is always something I have gravitated to easily. I don’t ever think that much into it. 


      How much jewelry you got on right now?

      I’m light today. I’m chillin’. Trust me, I’m chillin’.
