Less than a week after dropping a cool $600,000 on two matching Tupac chains, Drake is back at it again.
Like his prior pieces, Drizzy teamed up with celebrity jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills for his new ice. Setting him back $300,000, this one features a diamond-encrusted Cupid wearing a ski mask and consists of 75 carats of diamonds and over a half kilo of gold. The OVO rapper shared the piece on Instagram on Wednesday (August 5).
Remaining busy working on his next album and copping new jewelry, it appears Drizzy likely won’t be responding to UK rapper Wiley after he called him out in an antisemitic outburst in July. Though most of the original tweets have since been deleted, Wiley likened the Jewish community to the KKK and said they control the law.
“Ther are 2 sets of people who nobody has really wanted to challenge #Jewish & #KKK,” he wrote. “But being in business for 20 years you start to understand [sic] why … Red Necks Are the KKK and Jewish People are the Law…Work that out. Get that anti semetic bullshit out of here and take @drake with you on god. Everything I am saying is the reason drake can’t have black excellence ….Ask Diddy or jay z.”
He later apologized for generalizing in an interview, but reaffirmed his original sentiments about Drake and fellow affluent Jewish people.
“It’s systemic racism from their side!” he said. “What do you think? And that man [Drake] and a community of Jewish lawyers and thingy have made me feel that way. Yes they have. They’ve made me feel that way – not antisemitic; they’ve made me feel angry and upset because they are showing me the systemic racism and privilege that they’re allowed to use on us.”
