      DJ Khaled's Jewelry Game Is Unmatched, Announces New Album!

      DJ Khaled's Jewelry Game Is Unmatched, Announces New Album!

      Earlier today, DJ Khaled, announced that “Father of Asahd” is set for a May 2019 release! And he’s already claiming it as his “best album to date.” The Hip Hop mogul readies his 11th studio album, promising it to be one with nothing but hits. “I’m a guy that only wants to make hits. When I roll this album out, I’ma let people know, It’s time to get hits again, cause y’all been oversaturated with so much music that you all forgot what hits are,” Khaled boldly states.

      Even Epic Records president, Sylvia Rhone, agrees: “Every single track - it’s the best album you’ve ever made,” she told Khaled. As we wait for the epic release, we take a look back at Khaled’s selection of ice throughout his prosperous career.

      A frequent guest at Miami’s LIV Nightclub, it was only right that Khaled dedicated on his boldest chains to the popular venue.

      There's just no limit as to how many chains you should rock with one outfit. Oh, and don't forget the pinky rings and wrist weight, to match. Looking to impress with a neck full of chains, too? Check out King Ice's collection

      DJ Khaled RocNation Chain

      Revered as one of Hip Hop's most illustrious logos and jewelry pieces, here's Khaled with the iconic Roc-A-Fella chain - fully iced out. We're still unsure if it's more iconic than the Death Row Chain.

      We The Best Jewelry Piece

      Honoring his former group, Terror Squad, and friendship with Fat Joe, Khaled occasionally sports this famous Hip Hop logo as well.

      Baby Asahd

      Even Baby Asahd, whom Khaled named his new album after, keeps it more icy than most of us. 

      And let us not forgot the hilarious moment when DJ Khaled pronounces "jewelry" in his live radio interview with Power 105's, The Breakfast Club. 

       

       

      Women's History Month: Inspirational Women to Know!

      Women's History Month: Inspirational Women to Know!

      While we should celebrate our women all year round, the month of March is solely dedicated to women’s history - which originated as early as 1987 when Congress proclaimed March 7th as “Women’s History Week.” What started out as seven days, has since become a month of honoring the impact women have had in our society.

      And as you know, here at King Ice, we always make sure the ladies are covered as well.

      King Ice Girl Gang

      With our newly released Champion series, it’s important to know that women have been just as dominant - not only in sports, but in entertainment, business, politics and more. So, to the sports champion, or the every day champion, ladies, this one is for you.

       

      Cardi B Choker Chain

      If we’re talking music - particularly Hip Hop - there’s no doubt that Cardi B has won a lot of us over. Her rise to stardom was no easy road, but she’s earned it every step of the way. Last year, her debut album, “Invasion of Privacy,” topped the US Billboard 200, went double platinum, and became the first female artist to have all tracks from an album certified gold, or higher. That same album also brought in her first Grammy Award during this year’s ceremony. Isn't it obvious why she's so desirable?

      Michelle Obama. Her name alone is prolific. The former First Lady, had her portrait (painted by Amy Sherald) unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery. This was monumental for Amy, as well, because she became the first African-American artist to paint the Smithsonian's official presidential portraits.

      Coachella has raised the bar. Last year, the popular music festival had its first Black woman headline - and her name is, Beyonce! Queen Bey bodied a 27-song set for over 100,000 festival goers. Her performance set, alone, became the most watched live-streamed performance, to date, raking in 41 MILLION viewers. There's no question who is the Head Bey In Charge!

      [The HBIC Necklace]

      If you thought topping four gold medal wins in 2016 was going to be difficult, well, you’re name isn’t Simone Biles. The soon-to-be 22 year old gymnast from Columbus, Ohio, became the first woman to win FIVE all-around titles at the US national championships last Summer. This just might solidify her for G.O.A.T status, as she’s still early in her career. For her championship performance, Biles wore teal - the designated color for sexual-abuse survivors - to signify she stands with the gymnasts who, like herself, were abused.

      [The GOAT Neckace]

      Naomi Osaka, the half-Japanese, half-Haitian rising star in tennis did something absolutely remarkable in the US Open finals last year - defeat Serena Williams! The tremendous victory earned Osaka the privilege of becoming the first athlete representing Japan to win a Grand Slam Final. For that, we honor her with the 14k White Gold Champion Heritage medallion.

      To close this list out, one of the biggest brands in all of planet earth, NIKE, officially declared 2019 the “Year For Women!” For their new video campaign, “Dream Crazier,” Nike teamed up with Serena Williams as she narrated a video that highlighted women who dream big. The inspiring minute-and-a-half video advertisement highlights the accomplishment of women athletes, including Chloe Kim, Ibtihaj Muhammad, and of course, Serena Williams.

      “A woman running a marathon was crazy. A woman boxing was crazy. A woman dunking? Crazy. Coaching an NBA team? Crazy. A woman competing in a hijab, changing her sport, landing a Frontside Double Cork 1080, or winning 23 Grand Slams, having a baby and coming back for more? Crazy. Crazy. Crazy. Crazy. And Crazy.

      So if they want to call you crazy? Fine. Show them what crazy can do.”

       

      King Ice's Weekly Music Round-Up!

      King Ice's Weekly Music Round-Up!

      King Ice has built its reputation on quality. And we recognize quality not only when we see it, but when we hear it as well. Whether its mainstream, or indie, good music is good music and we’re here to share the hottest records we come across on the World Wide Web - on a weekly basis.

      To jumpstart the month of March, we take you down south to the A, where 2 Chainz tells us to "Rap or Go To The League." On his new album, A&R'ed by Lebron James, Chainz delivers 14 new tracks including the previously released “Girls Best Friend” record featuring Ty Dolla $ign. Also making guest appearances on the trackless are Marsha Ambrosius, Young Thug, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Ariana Grande, Lil Wayne, E-40, Chance the Rapper and Kodak Black.

      Next up, we jet set to the left coast, as LA’s TMG Fresh, gets his “Silk Pajamas” pressed. The luxury rapper unveils a more reflective project, compared to his previous work. On “Silk Pajamas,” TMG paints a picture of his high-end lifestyle and what it all means. The lyrics on the title track share a different side of Fresh, a playboy archetype known for celebrating the good life every chance he gets.

       

      The dynamic duo that is Cardi B and Bruno Mars makes a return this Winter, as they unveil the visuals for their new collaborative effort, “Please Me.” Co-directed by Bruno, himself, the steamy visuals finds the pair in Los Angeles, showing off their chemistry as they dance on each other - Cardi even gives Bruno a lap dance! The single has already debuted at No. 5 o the Billboard Hot 100 and is expected to rise!

       

      Fresh off the release of "Find My Love" with Nas and Amy Winehouse, Salaam Remi, is back with the second release off the DoItForTheCulture2 collection "Roll the Dice" featuring Gallant. “I was already a fan of Gallant’s from his song 'Weight In Gold'," says Salaam, "The first day that he came into my studios, the first bit of music he heard became this song. His voice soars on this Marvin Gaye Inspired music bed and since that day has been on my weekly playlist. I’m excited to share it as part of my DoItForTheCulture2 project.” And we're happy to share this on our weekly round-up this week!

      Also repping for the West Side, G-Eazy and Blueface connect for the official video of their joint effort, “West Coast.” The collaborative banger finds both artists boasting about their earnings, and G-Eazy drops hints about his upcoming album. Blueface comes through with some flexing of his own, “I got more b*tches than Petco.” “I’m comin’ this Summer, yeah, it’s safe to assume.”

       

      Earlier this week, T-Pain surprised fans with his latest album release, “1UP.” The release is the eclectic singer's first in over two years - “OBLiViON” was released in early 2017. We got a taste of the album when T-Pain teased a single with Tory Lanez back in January titled, “Gotcha Roll On” - which became the project’s lead single. It was then followed up with a Flipp Dinero assisted track titled, “All I Want” and OT Genasis featured “A Million Times.” Other notable features on this album include Boosie Badazz, and Lil Wayne. Stream below!

      With an abundance of talented newcomers, and heavyweights that continue to push the culture forward, Hip Hop remains a force to be reckoned with. And here at King Ice, we continue to honor the culture with pieces such as our latest, Deathrow Records release.

      The first style is the Death Row Records logo necklace that will be available in a white gold or 14K gold finish. Each pendant will be iced out with clear VVS Diamond Simulates and will be paired with a 24”, 8mm Cuban Chain.

      The second style will be the same Death Row Record label logo necklace in a white gold and 14K gold finish but will have a more solid look to it without any stones. These will also be accompanied with a 24”, 8mm stainless steel Cuban Chain.

      History: Champions Aren't Born, They're Made

      History: Champions Aren't Born, They're Made

      A champion is a person who has defeated or surpassed all rivals in a competition, especially in sports. As Black History Month comes to a close, we honor those who have earned the title “champion” in the world of sports. Whether we take it back as early as 1902 when Joe Gans became the first African American boxing lightweight champ, or 1948, when Alice Coachman became the first African American woman to win an Olympic gold medal, or even as recent as 2015 when Wendell Scott became the first African American to be inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame. Champions have been born and made over the decades.

      When it comes to the brand, itself, Champion, was at the early forefront of both the NBA and NFL, producing uniforms between the 1980’s and 1990’s. They also designed sportswear for many major colleges and the Olympic basketball team that competed at the 1992 Summer Olympics.

      Champions aren’t just born, they’re made - with dedication, talent, perseverance and an indomitable spirit. And the brand holds true to that, as they've withstood the test of time, as fashion trends came and went throughout the years. 

      Here, at King Ice, we give an ode to all the champions with our Champion Heritage CZ 925 Gold Vermeil Necklace. The Heritage C defines the logo of the proud and the worthy. And is made from .925 Sterling Silver and 14K gold plating, paired with a 1mm, 22” chain.

      Also available, is the Heritage Medallion piece that showcases the legendary logo 14K gold plating, surrounded by CZ stones encased in a circular medallion.

       

      2 of America's Most Wanted Chains: Death Row x King Ice

      2 of America's Most Wanted Chains: Death Row x King Ice

      For over 14 years, King Ice has been producing wearable art, inspired by culture and has designed an insurmountable amount of highly demanded, unique street wear jewelry. One of the most prominent and anticipated collaborations has been with Death Row Records.

      Death Row Records has been one of the most significant labels in music history and West Coast hip-hop. Since the initial start of Death Row in 1991 by Marion “Suge” Hugh Knight Jr. and Michael “Harry O” Harris, the effect has been monumental. Some of the label’s artists included the likes of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, and 2Pac Shakur.

      Though many came from turbulent backgrounds, nothing was going to stop them from succeeding. By 1994, the label had generated $300 million in sales. The label produced numerous hip-hop albums that are considered classics to this day.

      Dre’s “The Chronic” (1992) was certified triple-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Snoop’s “Doggystyle” (1992) was certified quadruple-platinum and Pac’s “All Eyez On Me” (1996) went on to be certified diamond by the RIAA.

      The artists weren’t the only members to succeed from their trials and tribulations. Harris, a reputable blood gang member from the Bounty Hunters set in the 70s and 80s, was a drug dealer in the streets of South-Central LA. Being street smart and book smart helped Harris become a successful entrepreneur and stray away from the gang life. He had an abundant amount of businesses like hair salons, limousine companies, and numerous real estate investments.

      Death Row Records’ has made a staple in hip-hop. Rapper The Game from Compton dedicated an entire song to this prominent chain called “Death Row Chain” from his “Streets of Compton” (2016) album, noting the significance of what this chain really means.

      Fast forward to 2019, almost two decades after the birth of Death Row Records, the Death Row x King Ice collaboration has made it possible for admirers to rock the label’s infamous logo chain like we’re back in the 90's.

      On Feb. 28, King Ice will be launching two new colorways and styles of the Death Row chains that will be added to the collection on www.KingIce.com.

      The first style is the Death Row Records logo necklace that will be available in a white gold or 14K gold finish. Each pendant will be iced out with clear VVS Diamond Simulates and will be paired with a 24”, 8mm Cuban Chain.

      The second style will be the same Death Row Record label logo necklace in a white gold and 14K gold finish but will have a more solid look to it without any stones. These will also be accompanied with a 24”, 8mm stainless steel Cuban Chain.

      Each piece will run for $120. For customers with a bigger bag, the $8,000 Solid 14K Gold and Diamond Death Row Logo Necklace and the 14K Solid Gold Death Row Logo Necklace for $5,500 are available for purchase, as seen on Snoop Dogg and The Game most recently.
