Rappers With Fake Watches Listed By Instagram Account

An Instagram account under the name FakeWatchBusta calls out rappers with fake watches.

With designer jewelry a staple in the lives and lyrics of many rappers, an Instagram user by the name FakeWatchBusta has spent a little over two months profiling rappers and other celebrities with fake watches on his account. 

FakeWatchBusta, who has kept his real name anonymous throughout, recently spoke with Noisey about his account and explained his initially having fun with the idea. “I started calling out some regular accounts on Instagram for fun, you know, just a dude in his 20’s that is fronting like he bought a Rolex Submariner to his followers and tagging #Rolex #Millionaire #Money and that sort of thing,” he said. FakeWatchBusta, who also has a dedicated watch account of his own called WingedCrusader, says he’s “busted” names like Carmelo Anthony, Rick Ross, Soulja Boy, and Sean Kingston.

“I think the jewelers are taking advantage,” he said. “But if [the rappers] wanted the real deal from, say, Ben Baller it would be twice the price. I don’t think they care about the watch part – it’s the diamonds and shit that’s important to them. I think it’s more jewelry than watches for most of them."

"I mean Soulja Boy’s watch is a bad Audemars Piguet quartz fake and the battery has run out so it shows the same time in all his pictures," he also said. "It’s 10:25 all day, every day. It’s pretty funny.”

Some of FakeWatchBusta’s posts and their corresponding captions are available below.

“When I busted @souljaboy I thought I had found the worst fake #AudemarsPiguetever,” he wrote. “Then @yogottikom shows up with this!!! Y~, Look at the date and the hands! Y(TM)^ I bet #HewlettPackard printed his money. Y(TM)Sh #BUSTED Y~(C) #RappersWithFakeWatches”

The account holder has continually chastised Soulja Boy for what he says is a fake watch stuck at a particular time.

@itsgunplay with a fucked up Bumblebee,” FakeWatchBusta wrote. “He hangs out with @tvjohnny and@richforever, what else would you expect? Y(TM)Sh Cut on 8 is terrible. Sub dial config is wrong, date is shallow and wider ring at the hand base. #BUSTED”

“Rapper @future with the worst kind of fake #AudemarsPiguet #RoyalOak#Offshore. Sub dial configuration is wrong and the 8 is not even close to the real cut off OEshY" He can thank his girlfriend @ciara for getting busted.”

    Thanks for this post! I love your blog, keep up the awesome work here!

    I want to buy a watch found here seems pretty good, do not know to pick the help of everyone to the point. http://www.formtime.co.uk/rolex/oyster-perpetual.html

    I mean why don't this lame ass dude get a life, he's not a jewel expert and he got these poor followers listing to him. This lame ass blogger don't have a life so he spend 50 percent of his time on celebrities dicks and the other 50 percent on porn site jacking off thinking about celebrities dicks. I'm willing to bet 5k that this guy was molested as a child by his father or uncle. In return he molest his kids, your going to get caught soon and when the Feds kick your door in I hope your not fondling your son.

      I know this guys blog and he actually knows what he is talking about when it comes to watches. But tbh you dont even need to be an expert to spot a lot of these fakes (the uncut 8 on the last pic is really bad). Spotting these fakes doesnt take 50% of anyones time, everyone with a bit of knowledge of high-end watches can spot these fakes in a split second. I think his blog is awesome, it shows rappers, politicians, reality TV idiots with fake watches. Specially love the rappers seeing most of these guys are all about the bling. They love showing of their wealth (stacks of money, diamonds, gold), if their watches are fake maybe the gold and cash is also fake, or just a stack of one's. At the same time i also kinda feel bad for the rappers. Cause chances are that they got screwed over by some 2 bit jeweler that sold them a fake. But seeing your reply is mostly about molestation maybe your reply is a scream for help? Did your uncle touch you in a naughty place?

    All these muthafuckas get ripped off because they keep going to the corner jewelry store instead of going directly to the real deal. That's like going to a rinky-dink car dealership trying to get the new Lexus LS 460 instead of going to a Lexus dealership itself. WTF!!! I forget, it's the classic "my man got the hook up" scenario.

    they called Gunplay the fakest LOL homie better watch out Ross doesn't like getting exposed. He might send the body guards to rough him up like DJ Vlad.

    That's what these rappers get. Making a few mill before taxes and after taxes and mortgages and all other things paid still wanna front like they dropped $240k on a watch. "Making more money than you" Yeah but I don't go around flaunting pics on IG of fake jewelry and portray myself as something I'm not so that's irrelevant. And that Soulja Boy thing is funny as hell!

    the jewelers are getting pissed at this guy, sending out cease and desist orders because a lot of these rappers don't even realize their shit is fake.

    • deads

      Except most of these guys dont go to jewelry stores. It all started with 1 jeweler that catered to people in the hiphop crowd. He would visit them in their home (or whereever), showed them a series of watches and then make the sale on the spot. And if the client had special wishes (like diamonds) he would make it happen. Since this came out a lot of shady guys popped up kinda coppying the way that guy works. Except they tend to cater to the lower lvl rappers that are all about bling and brand names and dont have a clue. The rappers pass these guys business card around (cause he makes sweet deals, not hard when your selling fakes).

    Meek and 50 have real watches but Gunplay can't afford a real one. "Who are the rappers with the best real watch collections? Meek Mill is genuine, 50 Cent is genuine, Eminem got one Rolex, and its real. Jay-Z is the one with the nicest watches. He is not into all the bling, he got some real quality high-end watches. He also has his own models from both Audemars Piguet and Hublot."

      "What does this mean about society?" What does it mean about society when middle aged black men have to wear fake watches to make their fans think they are really ballin?

    LMAO, should've stayed humble.

  • smh

    Yeah because the rappers cant afford 10k watches loll these haters are funny.. Any one heard of Custom. Rick Ross has a net worth of 35MILLION yet this insta hater says he cant afford a real watch. lol SMH Cant people just be happy others are doing well GAD DAYMM

    • deads

      @smh Ever had the idea that these rappers might not even know they are wearing fakes? There are alot of shady sellers out there, selling a 100 dollar fake for 10k is great business. And some of these watches (atleast the real deal) cost 20k+. Like Son said, AP, Rolex etc dont customize watches, its the jewelers that do that and there is no real reason for them to switch dials. The dial on the AP in the last pic doesnt even have diamonds so why would it even be switched. And those watches might not even be customized, because Rolex and AP actually do sell watches with loads of diamonds on them.

      "Rick Ross has a net worth of 35MILLION yet this insta hater says he cant afford a real watch." The guy never said Ross couldn't afford a real watch, he actually said he has seen him with a lot of real watches but he did wear a fake on in his own music video.

    • Re.Son

      What if the rapper told him to switch it and fully customize it?? i take it you prob know more about watches then me so i'll take your word on it but my point is These guys have money and buying a watch is such a small thing i know regular ass people with Rolex's.. Acting like these guys cant afford a watch is embarrassing and bitter.

    • Son

      AP and Rolex don't make custom dials. lol. Looking at the dial is the easiest way to see if a watch is counterfeit. No real jeweler switches out the dial on a watch. He may add jewels to it, but he doesn't change it. You look at dials, crowns, push buttons and you can tell quickly if a watch is fake or not.

      Yeah sometimes people just like how a watch looks, jeeze.

    Remember when Ace Hood's watch fell apart at one of the poverty BET awards last year? Shit was hilarious. Bow Wow was like, "Ain't a big deal, just another $20K.", yet they couldn't afford to buy a real one.

    #RICKROSS caught slippin' with a fake #AudemarsPiguet #RoyalOak #Offshore watch in his own music video! That crap is thrown in your face in the first few seconds of his video Veterans Day. Sub dial spacing is just terrible on 7, 5 and 8 a.k.a. 100% garbage. I have seen a lot of his other watches which are real, but with a mix tape using the AP logo you better have your collection sorted out. #PATHETIC, NOT BO$$. #BUSTED! I think Im Big Meech, look at my timepiece/Its an Audemar, hundred racks at least." - More like $20.

    How can a watch be "fake"? As long as it does what it's supposed to do (tell time), it's real.

      To the dude with the comment about the shoes, they're still running shoes at the end of the day, they can't be fake running shoes if they work as running shoes. You can say theyre fake NIKES but they're not fake running shoes. Same with the watch, you can say it's a fake Rolex or whatever brand it is trying to be, but it's not a fake watch because a fake watch wouldn't be able to tell time. Get it now, you retarded, dumbass, faggots? lol

      One of the dumbest comments I've ever read. Thanks for letting us know what a watch is supposed to do (tell time)

      I can buy a pair of shoes at wal-mart and stick a Nike check on them, they still work as running shoes which is what they are supposed to do but it doesn't make them real Nikes. Just like you can't slap a Corvette logo on a Prius.

    The fact that he actually took time to do all this, lets me know he's more lame than these fake watch wearing ass niggaz

    • Uhhh

      Uhhh it didn't take him much time at all. Takes 5 mins to setup an Instagram and start posting pics of rappers and their watches. Don't be a little pussy about it. Just admit your favorite rapper is a fake.

    • Anonymous

      if you know what you're looking for it doesn't take that much time. he clearly knows his shit so he takes a quick screenshot and posts it on his IG so we can all laugh at these frauds.

  • egjje
