      Thaddeus Dixon Doesn’t Want To Flex His Jewelry

      Thaddeus Dixon Doesn’t Want To Flex His Jewelry

      Thaddeus Dixon wants to be known as one of the greatest producers and songwriters to ever do it. Getting his start producing Meghan Trainor’s "Better When I'm Dancin'", which was featured in the Peanuts movie, the Detroit native would go on to work with big names such as Brent Faiyaz and Bryson Tiller. Having toured with both as a music director and drummer, Thaddeus loves music down to the core.


      Now based in Los Angeles, Thaddeus prides himself in staying locked in the lab. Most recently, he unleashed his new single “Addiction,” an ode to living your best life. 


      King Ice caught up with Thaddeus at his A-list studio in downtown Los Angeles, who gives his take on if artists should wear jewelry.


      What are your go-to pieces for jewelry?

      I’m not really a jewelry person. My ex bought me this chain, I still got it on. It’s 14K gold, it’s real shit. You gon’ take a picture of my lil ass chain. [laughs] 


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

      As an artist, I’m embracing different shit. I got my first tattoo today. Different things are happening because of where I’m going and what I'm doing. I don’t feel like you have to wear a chain. The type of n*gga I am too, I’m a Kanye/Pharrell-ish guy where you don’t see me wearing a bunch of ice or watches. I’m more chill. I might bust out a couple pieces when I get that bread to do it. You always say what you’re not going to do but when you get the money to do it, you never know.

      B-Real
      deserves all his flowers while he’s here. The Los Angeles native got his start as one of the leading rappers in Latino American rap group Cypress Hill, who received a rare star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. After touring the world with his bandmates, he’d go on to form rap rock supergroup Prophets of Rage, alongside members of Rage Against The Machine and Public Enemy.

      Recently celebrating his 50th birthday, B-Real can’t be stopped. Most recently, he put out a project titled Los Meros with Berner (translates to “the bosses”), and continues to pave the way as a strong advocate for marijuana. His Dr. Greenthumb dispensary has since expanded to 6 locations, while his media company B-Real TV continues to thrive.


      King Ice caught up with B-Real via Zoom to discuss who he thinks had the most iconic hip-hop chain to this day.


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

      Oh man, that’s a hard one. Fuck. The most iconic chain? That’s hard to say. Probably Death Row.


      Why do you like them?

      They came at the time where labels were going really heavy on that, representing their brand and making it a clique thing. Bad Boy too, their shit was tight too.

      Fast Cash Boyz Reppin’ Their Chains In Los Angeles

      Fast Cash Boyz Reppin’ Their Chains In Los Angeles

      Fast Cash Boyz are here to become the greatest rap group in hip-hop history. Hailing from Memphis, the FCB consist of neighborhood friends C-Money, TP Stacks, Money, and C Jizzle. The crazy part is all 4 of them came up with famed producer Tay Keith, recording tracks in the closet before he blew up.


      With each member coming out the trenches and making a life for themselves through music, FCB are on the brink of breaking through to the mainstream. Now, they release their highly-anticipated joint tape with Tay Keith titled F*ck the Cash Up. The project is spearheaded by lead single “Bad Habits,” co-produced by Murda Beatz. 


      King Ice caught up with the Fast Cash Boyz who was recording a music video in Los Angeles during quarantine.  The only person who wasn’t rocking his FCB chain was Money, who accidentally left it back home in Memphis.


      I like those FCB chains, how much were they?

      All: A lot!

      C Jizzle: A pretty penny. It looks different too.


      Where’s yours at? [to Money]

      Money: I fucked up, I left it back home in Memphis by mistake. It’s wild.

      C Jizzle: It’s all good, all this shit ain’t nothing but a plus.

      C Money: We make the chains, the chains don’t make us. It doesn’t mean anything. This jewelry shit comes with the rap game. We were doing this when we had no chains! We had a million views with no chains.


      You guys have bottles on bottles.

      C Money: Bel Air sponsors us! Appreciate that Bel Air.

      C Jizzle: We drink liquor, that’s what we like. Liquor and beats.

      is carving his own lane in the music industry, pushing his own genre of “tropical funk.” Experimenting with different sounds from dancehall to reggae to R&B, real name Malik Flint has been surrounded by music his entire life. After getting his feet wet producing for Kari Faux, he caught the attention of Donald Glover who eventually would sign him to his Wolf + Rothstein label.


      Last year, the Arkansas-bred, Los Angeles-based artist released “Dancing,” one of his biggest records to date. Now, he’s been locked in the lab in Long Beach working on even greater records for his growing fanbase.


      King Ice caught up with Malik to discuss his jewelry preferences, and the different types of rings he likes.


      What’s your go-to jewelry accessories?

      Probably a ring. I like to put on rings, or even a tiny necklace. I like tiny necklaces.

       

      What does your necklace say? 

      It's my middle initial, P for Perry.

       

      What rings do you like?

      I like silver rings. I like rings with crystals on them, like jade or onyx. Different crystals, even the Native American style rings. Skater company rings, I always try to get.
