      Rockie Fresh: Rick Ross Bought Me a Rolex👀

      Rockie Fresh: Rick Ross Bought Me a Rolex👀

      Rockie Fresh has been in the game for a minute, coming up alongside Casey Veggies after moving to Los Angeles from Chicago. To this day, their Fresh Veggies joint mixtape remains a favorite among fans. Since then, he’s signed to Rick Ross’ MMG imprint and even toured with rock band Fall Out Boy.


      Fast forward to 2019, he’s unleashed his first official debut studio album titled Destination via Rostrum Records. The 12-track project is spearheaded by single “Must Be” featuring Chris Brown. King Ice caught up with Rockie in Los Angeles to discuss his most expensive jewelry pieces and what he wants his legacy to be.


      Most expensive piece of jewelry you own? 

      Probably my watch or my Rolex, but that was a gift from Rick Ross. He got it for me when I first signed, that was a boss move. Shit, I was just shocked. The reaction to it, the video of it is on Worldstar. They were filming me, I was just like “damn, that’s crazy.” Nicest thing anyone’s ever done for me. My chain’s probably the second most expensive piece. It’s $15K but I talked him down a little bit. Shout out my boy James.

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

      Super minimal. I like it, but I can’t see myself spending millions of dollars on pieces. But you never know, shit. People’s minds change when the bags come in, so...


      What hip hop label had the most iconic chain ? 

      Me being a part of MMG, I got to put that up there. But then also Roc-A-Fella, that shit was super classic. Me and my boy Hustle were talking about the Terror Squad chains, the TS chains were hard. That’s hard, hip-hop be doing it’s thing on the jewelry side. It’s tough. 

       

       

       

       

       

      What do you want your legacy to be? 

      I want my legacy to be that I just motivated people to keep going, despite any issues or any ups and downs. Also really, I just want my daughter to be able to grow up and have a better life. She really the one that’s going to be the one leading my legacy, so I want her to be respected based off my name.

      King Ice, the Los Angeles-based jewelry brand, has laced some of the most notable hip-hop acts over the last decade including Wu-Tang Clan, Chief Keef, Odd Future and Snoop Dogg with their ice. They’ve also collaborated with the likes of Playstation, Spongebob Squarepants and Champion. With their roots in music and pop culture, it comes as no surprise that the brand has been tapped to deliver a new collection of Death Row Records jewelry.

      Death Row Records, the iconic record label founded by Suge Knight in 1991, is responsible for delivering iconic albums and artists into the fold, establishing a new era of West Coast hip-hop with artists such as Dr. Dre, Tupac, Snoop Dogg and more. Paying homage to the label, the collection features a XL Death Row Records pendant, a Death Row Records spinner medallion and a Death Row Records chain set.

       

      King Ice makes its chains, pendants, bracelets and earrings with hand set stones and cutting edge technology to create hip hop jewelry that captures the true essence of the culture. All men’s pendants come plated in 14K gold or rhodium to provide premium shine and protection. The pendants also include hand set stones that come placed along a micro pave setting to create better design layouts.

      PeeWee LongWay "My first chain was $50,000"

      PeeWee LongWay "My first chain was $50,000"

      Peewee Longway

      Peewee Longway is one of the originators of the Atlanta trap wave, coming up alongside the likes of legends such as Young Thug. In fact, Gucci Mane signed him to his label without even hearing his music. Real name Quincy Williams embodies a rapper who came out the mud and found music to be his calling. No matter what hardships or adversities you face in life, rapping served as an outlet and coping mechanism to want more for yourself and achieve your wildest dreams.

      Most recently, real name Quincy Williams unleashed his Blue M&M 4 project, with features from Quavo, YFN Lucci, and NBA Youngboy. In fact, YB actually used to look up to Peewee as one of his biggest influences.

      King Ice caught up with Longway in his few days in Los Angeles to chat about his take on jewelry and chains.


      Most expensive piece of jewelry you’ve ever purchased?

      My first chain like this was $50,000. My earrings are $50,000. 

      What are your go to pieces with your jewelry collection.

      I’m not really a jewelry fan. I started wearing the jewelry when I started rapping. I was low key, I don’t wanna be wearing all this shit.

       

      Because you didn’t want the attention?

      Nah, I didn’t. But you know... just flows. 

       

       

       How do you pick what to wear with your outfits?

      I don’t, sometimes you might go get some tee’s. It depends on what kind of shirt you got on. I’m wearing Givenchy right now. You can just throw anything on top of this, this a crew neck kind of shirt. But if you got another kind of collar on, you might wanna put these on: the diamond choker. 

       

      What’s most important to you when buying jewelry (the cut, diamond, size)?

      Definitely has to the quality of the diamond fasho. We want all the way clarity, then we gonna have to go with the size of the cut and the color guard. They all gotta match, it gotta be VVS. 

       

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

      I don’t know. I ain’t into all that shit.

       

      What advice do you have for someone who wants to do what you do?

      I can’t say do what I do, you gotta be better than me. Don’t do what I do. [chuckles] Because what works for me don’t work for you. You gotta go harder. Don’t do what I do, do you. That’s what makes you, you.
