      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.

      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.

      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.

      Casanova: My Watch Was $120,000‼😲

      Casanova: My Watch Was $120,000‼😲

      Hailing from Brooklyn is Biggie, Jay Z, Fabolous… then Casanova. Born and raised in Flatbush, the East Coast spitter puts on for his city like no other. Not only is he a walking testimony to all those who come from the mud, he proves even the most impossible dreams can be made a reality.


      Regardless of what he’s endured in his lifetime, Cas puts it all into his music. With that comes relentless bars, punchlines, and storytelling in a bold and aggressive manner that audiences can’t help listen. Currently signed to Roc Nation, real name Caswell Senior recently put out a project titled Behind These Scars, spearheaded by lead single “So Brooklyn” featuring Fabolous. 

      King Ice caught up with Casanova in his few days in Los Angeles to chat about his jewelry preferences, the most iconic chain in his opinion, and his legacy.

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

      My watch, $120,000 for a Patek Philippe. 

      Did you treat yourself?

      Yes, definitely. I don’t think nobody’s going to buy that for me. 

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

      My style is flashy. Flashy and aggressive, that’s about it.

      I’m surprised you don’t have any VVS’s on your teeth.

      Nahhh, I like my teeth. I think that’s a down South thing. It came from The Hot Boyz, “Bling Bling.” Remember back in the day? I could probably do it, but I don’t like how people be talking. 

      Nuh uh, I ain’t with it.

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

      Roc-A-Fella, definitely. Not Roc Nation, Roc-A-Fella. Because that’s when I was growing up but also... I ain’t going to front, Biggie and Puff did do it. They did do it. They did it. They paved the way for me, then it was Roc-A-Fella. Then it was Death Row, Hot Boyz. So I’d have to go with Bad Boys first. 

      What do you want your legacy to be?

      I want people to understand that it’s okay to be real. It’s okay to mess up. I just want people to respect me as an artist. A transformed convict. I just want to give people a chance to see they can make it.

      Best New 15 Year Old Musician, Jayden Bartel

      It’s crazy to think Jayden Bartels is only 15 years old, but the Los Angeles native is absolutely killing it. You may have seen her acting on the Disney show Coop & Cami Ask the World, but the singer-songwriter has had equal if not more success in the music world. Unleashing her first record “Can’t Help Me Now” back in July 2018, fans have been begging for more ever since.

      Jayden prides herself in creating music for audiences to relate to, even directing her own music video for “The Group.” King Ice caught up with Jayden in Los Angeles to discuss her style, her love for rings, and advice for up and comers who want to do what she does.

      What are your go to pieces in your jewelry collection? 

      Definitely rings. I don't really wear bracelets, I sometimes wear necklaces but I like crazy rings. I get my rings from all different places. I usually get them as gifts, I don’t think I’ve ever bought a ring. I got some in Cabo though, they have really cool rings in Cabo.

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

      My style always follows the silver theme or the gold theme. Either silver earrings or gold bracelets, it has to stick to one of those. 

      Do you prefer gold or silver?

      Definitely silver, I feel like I wear it a lot.

      What’s something everyone should have in their jewelry collection?

      A locket. A heart locket. Everyone needs one of those just to put something important in it.

      What advice would you give a young aspiring artist such as yourself?

      Stay genuine to yourself. Don't let anyone else change who you really are. If you feel a strong way or if you like something, then that's who you really are. You don't need anyone else's opinion or what anyone else has to say shouldn't vary that.
