      T-Pain Still Has His Iconic Chain

      T-Pain Still Has His Iconic Chain

       Photo credit: Romell Findlay

      Does
      T-Pain even need an introduction? The R&B singer-songwriter is best known for sparking a whole autotune movement, unleashing hit after hit after hit. "I'm Sprung", "I'm 'n Luv (Wit a Stripper)", "Buy U a Drank (Shawty Snappin')", "Bartender", "Can't Believe It", “Kiss Kiss” featuring Chris Brown are just a few of our favorites.


      Fast forward to 2020, T-Pain is living his best life. Quarantine has been his dream come true, revealing he actually hates travelling. His house in Atlanta is a trip in itself, stocked with his own arcade, movie theater, a T-Pain shrine in his hallway of accolades, and even room for his top hats. King Ice caught up with the Nappy Boy Entertainment founder to bring us back one of the most iconic chains in hip-hop history.


      Do you still have your iconic chain?

      Yeah, it’s somewhere in this house. I have no idea where it is. It’s somewhere in here, I don’t know man. I get drunk and I fuck with it a lot, then it gets put down somewhere in here. I don’t know where it is.


      Do you ever wear it out?

      Oh no, it’s too heavy. It’s too much. Either I’m at show on stage or I’m drunk out of my mind in the studio and feel like wearing it real quick. [laughs]

      Amina Shares Preference for Jewelry!

      Amina Shares Preference for Jewelry!

      You may recognize Amina Buddafly from her role on Love & Hip Hop: New York, specifically her tumultuous relationship with Peter Gunz. Now, she’s free and still passionate more than ever about the one thing in life that never fails her: music.


      Currently a mother to two beautiful children, Amina spends her waking hours perfecting her craft. At the core, she loves music, and is working towards that #1 song on the charts. Additionally, she has two books out called The Other Woman and Mi Dishes & More.


      King Ice caught up with Amina to discuss her (lack of) preference for jewelry, while she was rocking large silver hoops.


      Explain your style as it relates to jewelry.

      Omg, I’m actually so not into jewelry. I don’t think I own anything expensive. Maybe my engagement ring that I don’t wear anymore. [chuckles] That’d be the only piece of jewelry I got. Really, I’m not at all about that. I like jewelry, but I was never really into it. I like to get gifts, but I’m not about buying things. 


      Do you always wear hoops?
      Nah, only these ones [points to ears]. I have a few different types, but hoops are definitely my style. I like the tiny, little ones.

      Qveen Herby Bosses Up w/ Make Up Line

      Qveen Herby Bosses Up w/ Make Up Line

      Qveen Herby is a reborn solo artist, after years of success as one-half of Karmin. The musical duo comprised of her and her now husband was signed to Epic Records, but real name Amy Noonan is excited now more than ever to go full-fledged with her solo artistry.


      With a sound crossing the genres of contemporary pop and hip-hop, Qveen Herby has been locked in the studio creating nothing but bangers for her growing fanbase. Most recently, she released her new visual for “Check,” holding fans over until her debut album. Up until now, she’s only released EPs with no titles, just numbers.


      King Ice caught up with Qveen Herby to discuss her favorite accessory, which is actually makeup over jewelry.

      Qveen Herby

      What are your go-to accessories?

      I have my own makeup line, which I didn't bring because shit’s sold out. It's annoying, because I thought we were prepared. It's called Qveen with a V, our website is Qveen Studio. Shout out to my team in New York who’s quarantined, still one person packing orders and disinfecting everything. We’re in Boxycharm which is a big subscription box. Now there are hundreds of thousands of people with my lipstick, which is amazing.


      When did makeup come in? Was that always a passion too?

      That was very much a female empowerment move. I’ve toured a lot as Karmin and before that, I was a freaking wedding singer. The most annoying thing is when there’s makeup all over your face. Because we do a sweaty show, we move and we enjoy ourselves. There’s lipstick on my mic, my mascara’s over here. If I’m going to make some crazy formulas and develop that, let’s offer it in the merch store. It’s not Qveen Herby t-shirts, come get your mugs! Oh, you can wear my face. It’s done really well. Every season, we drop new colors. Every EP, we do an eyeshadow pallet. It looks like a CD.

      SACBxY: "Hella people basically copying my style."🤬

      SACBxY: "Hella people basically copying my style."🤬

      SACBxY is a fucking all-star. Coming up as one of the original members of famed dance crew The Jabbawockeez, real name Phil Tayag is a Filipino-American creative here to make music, dance, and overall give you nothing but good vibrations. 


      His accomplishments to date can hardly be boxed into writing, from performing Super Bowl 50 alongside Bruno Mars to starring in Bruno and Cardib’s “Finesse” music video. He’s also taken the stage at multiple NBA events, from the All-Star game to the Finals.


      Most recently, he released his new visual for “in mY way,” paying homage to his hometown (just like his name).


      King Ice caught up with SACBxY to discuss the meaning behind his lone gold ring.


      What’s your favorite piece of jewelry to wear?

      I got this little BWBE ring. BWBE has been my own personal brand since 2005. On some underground shit, I’ve seen hella people basically copying my style. This actually stands for “Biters will Be Eaten.” That’s when I was in the scene, really tripping. Because people would try to take my stuff to the industry, to these big platforms in LA, when I was still living in Sac. When I was on some underground shit. I’m not out here hella tripping off of people, so it evolved right? Now it’s more about being yourself, so it says “Be Me” upside down. Ultimately, it’s about being genuine. I’m not trying to monitor people. Maybe I was being reactive before but hey, just be yourself.
