The most popular post ever on brokencool was The 10 Most Ridiculous Rapper Chains. It looked at some of the most ridiculous jewelry ever worn by humans (rappers) on earth. I followed this up with 10 More Ridiculous Rapper Chains. Since delivering these two posts over 2 years ago, rappers have still gone out and bought some ridiculous shit to wear around their necks. So to that point, welcome to 10 Ridiculous Rapper Chains (2011 Edition).
I just want to congratulate Rick Ross for taking chain ridiculousness to a whole new level. The Bawse went on got a chain that has Rick Ross wearing a Rick Ross chain. To recap, Rick Ross wears a Rick Ross chain wearing a Rick Ross chain. Warning: Do not try to make sense of this. Rappers know not what they do.
OJ DA JUICEMAN</p>
OJ Da Juiceman wears a juiceman around his neck...'cause his name is OJ Da Juiceman...get it? You do know that straw probably cost $10,000 right? Now if it's a bendy one I'll be impressed.
WAKA FLOCKA FLAME
Here is Waka Flocka Flame's digital camera chain. Well...it's not actually a digital camera...it's just a pretend one...it's also completely ridiculous. Not only could have Waka Flocka purchased a much cooler chain, but he probably could have bought a real nice top of the line digital camera to...you know...actually use. But I mean what else would we expect from someone who used to wear Fozzy Bear around their neck:
No, that isn't a small baby hanging around Kanye's neck...it's his pharaoh chain valued at something like $300,000. Is it kind of cool? Sure...but do you think that's something Kanye is gonna look at when he wakes up in the morning and say "I think I gotta wear that today, it'll go great with my shoes"...actually, that is something Kanye would say. My chain heavy:
That's Lil' B on the left...wearing what appears to be a bowl of fruit around his neck. Now I'm not gonna make the connection between Lil' B wearing a bowl of fruit and his album being called 'I'm Gay'...actually I just did.
Here is what I don't understand about Plies fitted hat chain: what kind of statement is he trying to make with this? Is he trying to tell the world "Hi, my name is Plies and I'm too fuckin cool to wear hats on my head...so I rock them on my neck." I mean I just don't see the point of this...then again, he used to wear a license plate around his neck so who am I to see his true vision:
Gucci Mane is 31 years old. That's all I care to say about this chain.
We gotta do better people. Here is T-Pain wearing his iced out liquor bottle collection. Why anyone would want to wear iced out bottles of vodka around their neck is beyond me. Doesn't T-Pain scream "I know how unbelievably crazy I look" in that photo?
Sean's 'Pow' chain isn't particularly ridiculous...that is until you find out he spent $45,000 on it. One more time...that chain cost $45,000. I'm thinking of buying Sean his next one-word chain...I'm torn between 'dumb' or 'fuckouttahere.'
It's tough to do these posts without including Plies twice. Recently, the Florida based rapper unveiled to the world his new chain...an iced out clothing iron. Now I'm no financial adviser, but if I was, and my client asked me if they should buy an iced out clothing iron, I would hurt them...very bad. Not only is this chain ugly as sin, but there is no one on God's earth that will ever walk up to Plies and say "yo son...that's a dope chain." Unless he goes to a Molly Maid convention.
