      Smoke DZA: "Double Up. Got 3 Chains"🥇🥈🥉

      Smoke DZA: "Double Up. Got 3 Chains"🥇🥈🥉

      Smoke DZA could care less about the industry, he just makes music because he loves it. Hailing from New York, the East Coast spitter grew up to the likes of Jay Z and Biggie — proving he likes to rap rap. This means gritty bars, punchlines, and flows over smoothed out production. His name is inspired of course, by the gas he smokes.

      After a series of mixtapes and albums, he announces a forthcoming project with Curren$y, a fellow weed-loving rapper. Prestige Worldwide arrived on Black Friday this year. King Ice caught up with Smoke DZA in his few days in Los Angeles to chat about his chains, his legacy, and jewelry style.


      What the most expensive piece of jewelry you own?

      Maybe my Hulk Hogan pendant. I got a chain, it was an undisclosed amount. A lot of money.


      I see you rocking Smokers Club. 

      I own that brand. I’m a owner/co-founder of Smokers Club.

      You got the double Smokers Club chains!. 

      Had to double up. Got 3 chains!


      Do you wear your Smokers Club chains at all times?

      I switch it up. I have a lot of jewelry, but this is a cool little set right here. 


      How would you describe your jewelry style?

      Ambidextrous. I can go a lot of different ways. I can go either hand.


      What hip hop label had the most iconic chain?

      Roc-A-Fella, because Dame and Jay did it. They were the greatest combo ever, just their style. 


      What do you want your legacy to be?

      I’m still carving my legacy out as we speak. I want my legacy to be somebody who was indie, who did it his own way. And still got the major success as anybody that was a part of any system you could think of.


      How would you define success?

      I would define success with ownership. I own Smoke DZA. I own the Smokers Club. 


      What can we expect next?

      Tour, I’m going on the road with Spitta. I got the album coming top of the year, and another big collab project. I can’t say, but it’s more than one person. I would say it’s The Expendables.

      Childish Major: Cash Money Over Roc-A-Fella😬

      Childish Major: Cash Money Over Roc-A-Fella😬

      Childish Major is a man of many talents, from R&B to producing to composing. The South Carolina native may have dedicated his last project DIRT ROAD DIAMOND to the sand roads in his hometown, but Atlanta is what raised him. In fact, hit single “Supply Luh” was even featured on the HBO hit series Insecure.

      The only thing greater than Childish’s music is his personality — a lover above all else. King Ice caught up with the Grammy-nominated recording artist to discuss jewelry preferences, his most expensive watch, and why Roc-A-Fella is still the GOAT.

      What’s the most expensive piece of jewelry you own?

      Jewelry, I’m not crazy on  jewelry. I mean, I have this [shows chain]. A little angel with some yellow diamonds in it. Maybe $3,000 or $4,000. 

      Slight flex.

      Yeah slightly. I’m more of clothes and shoes. Those are my materialistic vices. 

      You don’t really like to accessorize with any jewelry?

      My accessories don’t have to be crazy. I’m cool with a hat and some glasses. I have some pretty expensive glasses.

      What’s the most expensive pair?

      It’s this Japanese company, I don’t even know how to fucking pronounce the name of the glasses it’s crazy. I paid $400 for them. 

      Who in your opinion had the most iconic hip-hop chain?

      Honestly, The Roc-A-Fella chain. It’s gotta be out of Roc-A-Fella or Cash Money honestly, to me. Cash Money because they have the simple rectangle with the black background with the diamonds in it, that shit was cold. But who has the illest chain game period? It has to be Pharrell for sure.

      Which chain of his?

      Literally every fucking chain Pharrell has ever had. Then on top of that how he started his shit off, he had the ill ass gold plated Blackberry, had the fucking ruby gold Rubik’s cube. He’s the goat. 



      What do you want your legacy to be?

      I want to be remembered as the guy who inspired everybody.



      Ebie: Diamond Spiked Chokers💎

      Ebie: Diamond Spiked Chokers💎

      EBIE is far more than just Eazy-E’s daughter, she’s the next big pop/rock superstar. While it’s easy to assume she does R&B or hip-hop music given how big her father was in the rap game, the 28-year-old proves she’s her own artist with her own style and sound. If you were to pinpoint exactly her vibe, it’s as if Kanye West and Avril Lavgine had a baby — and that’s EBIE.

      Most recently, she unleashed her single “Heart Hurts,” inspired by a recent break-up. King Ice caught up with EBIE to discuss her jewelry preferences, and which label she thinks had the most iconic chain of all time.

      What’s the most expensive piece of jewelry you own?

      My watch that I don’t have on. [chuckles] It’s a TechnoMarine watch. It’s all diamonds, diamond-embezzled. It’s really nice, that might be the most expensive piece. Back then, maybe $5,000.

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

      It’s so funny because I’m like “once my record blows up, I might have all this gaudy stuff” — but no. I make jokes about that: “all these big pieces everywhere!” You know what I really want though? Billie Eilish has this diamond spiked choker, I want one so bad. It’s crazy because I said I wanted one before I even seen she had it. When I saw the picture, I’m like “oh my God, that’s literally the piece of jewelry I want.” Probably my next thing to celebrate once my EP’s done, I want a diamond EBIE. I’ve become a little more simple but like I said, nice pieces. But not too much. [laughs] 

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

      Ooh, maybe Roc-A-Fella. I’m just a huge Jay-Z fan and everything that he’s built. I don’t want to talk about my dad but I do say that if he’d been alive, he definitely would’ve been a Jay-Z before Jay-Z. I just look to everything that he does, he’s tapped into everything. Not even just hip-hop but even with him being with Beyonce. Tapping into that, having other artists like Rihanna, who’s also another idol of mine. Now tapping into sports. Just all the different types of ventures that he does, it’s incredible. 


      Who’s the most played artist on your phone?

      Either Ariana Grande or Ellie Goulding, honestly. 

      Anything else you want to let us know?

      My social media because that’s important. [chuckes] It’s @EBIE.


      Philthy Rich: Jim Jones Told Me He Lost A $60,000 Bracelet!

      Philthy Rich: Jim Jones Told Me He Lost A $60,000 Bracelet!

      Philthy Rich is a boss tycoon, no matter which way you look at it. Coming out of East Oakland, the rapper, CEO, and father is a Bay Area legend. With over a decade in the game and over 50 projects, real name Phillip Beasley doesn’t just say he’s the hardest-working man in the music industry, he proves it through his actions.

      Most recently, he unleashes his new project titled Big 59, named after his hood in Oakland.  King Ice caught up with Philthy to discuss his perspective on chains and why he tried to stop wearing them for 6 months.

      On “Big 59,” you said you tried not to wear jewelry for 6 months. Why is that? 

      You get tired of anything if you have it too much, I was trying to focus on different stuff. Buying jewelry is addictive. It’s all the way addictive, it’s like a drug — to the point where I want something else for every outfit. “I wore this chain too many times. I took too many pictures in this.” That’s how it be sometimes. Then I was on the road one time, I had this one Jesus piece on. That’s all I was wearing. I’m like “nah, I don’t even feel like wearing this.” 

      I hear stories... say you on the road and you had a girl come over. You undress her, you took your jewelry and put it somewhere. You got a flight at 4 in the morning. You kicked her out, ya’ll got into an argument or something. Or you went to sleep late and you got that flight leaving at 4, you forgot you hid the jewelry from the girl. You get up and done left out the room, on the flight back somewhere else and you forgot. 

      This sounds like a true story!

      No, I’m just saying. You have to use scenarios. That’s never happened to me but what if it would’ve happened? Because you got on too much. My boy Jim Jones, he told me one day he lost a $60,000 bracelet up in the dresser, they’re saying they didn’t find it. He kept calling and but they ain’t find it, he had already left. People see something like that, they ain’t giving that back.

      Did you really go 6 months without wearing anything? 

      Nuh uh, I tried. Because I had to do shows, it’s a lose-lose situation. If I go do a show right now and I ain’t got no chain on: “he got robbed or he broke.” That’s how they gon’ look at it. [chuckles] It’s to the point if I go to Detroit and take a picture with no chain, they gon’ say “he’s  scared! He in Detroit, ain’t got no chain on.” In LA, it don’t matter where, that’s just how they attack you. I see it all the time. It could be a picture I just threw my shirt over my head, they didn’t see the chain or I ain’t pull it out yet. I didn’t even notice it, they’ll be like “look! He out there in Chicago, he ain’t got no chains on though.” I swear, there’s so much hate. It’s crazy. If I had a nose ring with a big ass diamond and I just took a picture on the toilet and I took it out, “he ain’t got that nose ring, so he went broke. The diamond was too big” [imitates girl voice]. 

      I know some people that hide their chain.

      What’s the point of wearing it?

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

      My rose gold FOD chain from Ben Baller, with the Kilo Cuban in the bracelet. Spent like $250K on it, the piece is Kilo and the chain’s Kilo.

      Where’s it at?

      I ain’t got on me, shit’s put up. I can’t wear that shit all day, your neck would be on the ground. We were in Miami passing that motherfucker around, like “bro it’s yo turn, yo turn, yo turn.” Walking up Collins and Oceans, back and forth to the hotel man. 2 kilos? You couldn’t wear 2 kilos around your neck for an hour. I’m telling you, you gon’ be hurt. You can kill somebody if you hit them with that.

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

      To me, that big ass T-Pain chain he had. It was the biggest chain in the Guinness Book of World records, it was hella big. Ross had a dope ass chain with his face before everybody started doing that. 



      Mike G: "My Style is in Between Obnoxious and Classy"😎

      Mike G: "My Style is in Between Obnoxious and Classy"😎

      Mike G will forever be a part of Odd Future. The collective started by Tyler, The Creator stands for Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All (OFWGKTA), highlighting the unique, abstract talent and creativity embodied in each member. Real name Michael Griffin remembers his first encounter with Tyler at the Supreme shop in La Brea back in 2008, eventually going on to chopp and screw their first mixtape — it’s been a wrap ever since.

      Fast forward to 2019, the brand is strong as ever (although they don’t tour). In fact, Mike will be returning to Camp Flog Gnaw carnival for the 8th year in a row, joining some of the biggest names in music while of course, celebrating and sharing the stage with his OF family.

      On top of releasing his Exile EP back in August, Mike has been busy with his own Stealth Fighter clothing brand and simply living the LA dream. King Ice caught up with Mike G to discuss his love for jewelry, his favorite pieces, and what he wants his legacy to be.

      Mike G Odd Future

      Talk about your love for jewelry.

      At the basis of it, I really just like shiny stuff. [chuckles] I do like metals and the chemistry of it, even though I don’t understand it too much. The makeup the build of it, how you mix this metal with this metal. Designing also. To have the capital to do that is the first step, so that’s what I’m working on.. 


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

      My style is in between obnoxious and classy a little bit. I don’t mind mixing metals or whatever. It’s a little personal. 


      What are your go-to pieces in your jewelry collection? (Something you put on with any outfit or occasion)

      Definitely rings. I just got this, it’s my Green Lantern ring. I have a designer, a guy I work with. That and this Stealth Fighter piece [points to necklace]. These two things mainly. I’m working on getting a real nice watch, probably a Rolex.


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

      Definitely this Stealth Fighter chain.


      How much was it?

      I can’t disclose that, but I will say the price of the gold was significantly lower. 


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

      Beyond necklaces, I’d probably make a crown on something. Something really pointless for sure. 


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

      To be unavoidable is like a Roc-A-Fella. But design-wise, I like how the Death Row chain was. Even Aftermath was kind of tight. 





      What do you want your legacy to be?

      I want people to know they can do anything. The course of my life is hard to put into words, so if I can give the same feeling to anyone else — if it makes sense to anyone else, then I feel like my job is done. Even my ambitions, if I can make that make sense to anyone else, that’s all I want.
