Kanye’s New Chain Cost $300k

| June 30, 2010 | 48 Comments

Good Lord that’s a lot of money.

WoooHa first reported (but have since removed the post), that Kanye’s new Horus piece, that he rocked at the BET Awards, ran him $300k and he purchased from the-recently-free-man, Jacob the Jeweler.  It looks like a midget is hangin’ from his necklace.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Its actually a decent investment considering the cost of gold per ounce right now. It won’t lose its value anytime soon. As opposed to you wannabe ass niggaz snatchin cloudy ink injected diamonds up that won’t be worth half of what you payed for em 2 years from now.

  4. FatBoi says:

    ^^^^^^^Very valid point bro Gold is what we all should buy money aint worth shit, so when you get some the best thing you can do is buy gold and other natural resources, but A chain with Osirus on it? Im just saying that a bold statement. Im ready to see if all this shit is going to be revealed, Im tired of wondering. I think this a tel tell sign that we are going to soon see what this life shit is all about.

  5. do says:

    ^^^
    I knew it was only a matter of time before sometime tried to tie this to the Illuminati stuff….

  7. FatBoi says:

    ^^^ I dont know what dude linked into but I wont be so quick to think this is another Kanye Fashion statement, I believe this is a flaunting of new found knowledge. I dont know who its tied to but I was interested in Ancient Egyptian History in College AND i KNOW WHO HORUS IS. he is the all seeing eye. the god of the sky..

  8. Michael Jordan XIII says:

    I keep tellin niggas that Kanye was “Initiated” into the fold. This shit is seriously gettin’ out of hand man. Niggas don’t even know what this shit represents!!! The truth will soon be revealed!!! We livin’ in modern day Babylon. Shit is sickening!!!

  9. dawreck says:

    he better hope they dont yung berg his ass. Ha Ha!

  10. erk says:

    this nigga know exactly what hes doin. just another pawn ushering in the new world. Drew you know what it is quit playin

  11. @Andrew Barber says:

    ANDREW WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU KNEW SOMEONE WOULD TRY TO “TIE IT IN” TO THE ILLUMINATI. YOU KNOW ALL ABOUT WHATS GOING ON IN THE INDUSTRY. LIKE YOU SAID BEFORE ON HERE AND IN SPEAKING TO YOU, IT’S ALL ABOUT THAT UNIVERSAL MIND CONTROL. DON’T GET ON HERE FRONTING NOW THAT YOU’RE SCARED OF THE MOVEMENT.

    TO EVERYBODY ELSE, GLAD TO SEE THAT PEOPLE KNOW WHATS GOING ON AND KNOW WHATS TO COME. YOU SHOULD CHECK OUT THE SITE http://WWW.THEINDUSTRYEXPOSED.COM. THERE’S A LOT OF VIDEOS ON THERE THAT GIVE YOU EDUCATION AND PROOF

    EX-MASON

  12. A.J. Crew says:

    @Andrew Actually dude, yeah, Horus is the “god” of the sky, so it’s definitely feasible he could represent something like the “all-seeing eye”.

    But ya’ll are taking this Freemason and Illuminati shit WAY too far. Freemasons ain’t even evil like that. Have ya’ll read the TIME Special Edition Issue on secret societies? Do your (legit) research. Also, just because SOMEBODY ELSE (possibly) is involved with that stuff, shouldn’t change your perception of their ART. At this point, ya’ll are judging Kanye as a person, which shouldn’t be ANY of your concerns.

    #rantdone.

  13. To: AJ Crew says:

    AJ what the fuck are you talking about. Nobody taking shit to far. Do you even know what the song POWER is saying. Do your research! Its referencing Illuminati teachings. Nobody said that Kanye is not talented but how do you think the secret society spreads their message? IT’S THROUGH THE MUSIC HOMIE. So at the point at which Kanye starts putting his beliefs in his music it is OUR CONCERN. I have a family full of masons so I know all about masonry and it is tied to demonic beliefs. Before you type go do real research and don’t just believe everything you READ. Do you know that MASONS control MEDIA? That would include the TIME special edition that you are telling people to read. THEY CONTROL HISTORY….NO ONE MAN SHOULD HAVE ALL THAT POWER!

  14. MaggMylemink says:

    I REALLY DON’T CARE ABOUT PEOPLE’S PERSONAL LIFE WHO THEY WORSHIP OR ANY OF THIS ILLUMINATI SHIT PEOPLE PUT TO MUCH FOCUS ON THINGS PEOPLE DONT HAVE ANY CLUE OF….ALL THEY KNOW IS WHAT’S BEEN SAID AND SHOWN THROUGH THE MEDIA NOT SAYING SOME PEOPLE ARE KNOWLEDGEABLE OF THIS AND IT COULD BE TRUE. THE POINT I’M MAKING IS I CAN CARE-LESS ABOUT WHAT HIS CHAIN MEANS IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH ME, IT DOESN’T AFFECT THE WAY I LIVE OR SLEEP OR GO ON WITH MY LIFE, THE MAN MAKES GREAT MUSIC AND THATS ALL THAT MATTERS AND FOR 1 THATS A DOPE ASS CHAIN SO GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR THAT. FOR ME ITS ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC SO I DON’T CARE ABOUT WHAT THESE PEOPLE ARE INTO IN THEIR PERSONAL LIVES……IM JUST SAYING WE PUT TO MUCH EFFORT AND THOUGHT INTO BULLSHIT INSTEAD OF THINGS THATS RIGHT IN OUR FACE AFFECTING OUR COMMUNITIES WE CONSUMERS PUT TO MUCH PRESSURE AND CRITIQUE THESE ARTIST LIKE THEY NOT ONE OF US THEY FUCKING HUMAN PEOPLE. JUST MY OPINION AND I GUESS GIVING THAT NOWADAYS IS HATING SO IT IS WHAT IT IS.

  15. black says:

    KANYE DONT EVEN WRITE HIS OWN RAPS……SO THEY COULDNT BE HIS PERSONAL BELIEFS ANYWAY WHICH MAY MEAN THAT HE’S NOT A FREEMASON OR ANY OF THOSE THINGS

  16. Kanye is in the illuminati says:

    ^^^^^^^What?!? You don’t have to write your own raps to tell somebody what you want the song to be about dumb ass. Thats what a ghost writer does. You tell he/she your own thoughts and they put it in the form of a song.

  17. Andrew says:

    Hold on, the Masons control the media? I thought Jewish people controled the media (no shots at my Jewish peoples, of course)? Where they do that at?

  18. A.J. Crew says:

    @ To: AJ Crew (Great post name, btw)

    I will quote you real quick to make you sound incredibly stupid…

    “So at the point at which Kanye starts putting his beliefs in his music it is OUR CONCERN.”

    So you guys will approve of songs like “All Falls Down” and “Jesus Walks” in which “Kanye starts putting his beliefs in his music…” but you won’t approve of songs like “Power” in which he’s doing the SAME EXACT THING. You people sicken me. Man, I wanna join Illuminati and the Freemasons so I can control media and shut you guys the FUCK UP. #rantpart2done

    @Andrew Co-sign.

  19. FatBoi says:

    Look Im not judging that nigga but the truth is he has made a big leap from jesus walks and all falls down, those songs talked about things that are going on in the world and people walked away from those songs inspired. Power is super dope but open your eyes this nigga is talking about suicide at the end of the song. and for the record Horis “in life” was the god of the sky but in death he was Osirus the gatekeeper to hell you do YOUR research. Imma still buy his album cause he from na crib, but all Im stating is that niggas is getting bold with these messages, and if you read the bible you will already know whats about to happen, and how to handle it, and if u dont……God Bless. and for the Record Drew you my brother and I know you have to stay impartial so I think its cool the way u playin it. but mason come in all nationalities Jews, blacks, white, and latinos, I dont know what they know or even if they are good or bad but SUMTHIN IS DEF BOUT TO GO DOWN. IF any of yall wanna know somthing about this shit fuck a website pick up a bible, and then cross reference with Ancient Egyptian history, its all tied its all the same story.

  20. MaggMylemink says:

    @FATBOI GREAT POINT I LIKE THAT STATEMENT!!!!

  21. pro says:

    hes not talking about suicide hes talking metaphorically about killing his image of a powerful rapstar and possibly living a normal life quite the opposite of what secet societies preach!!!

  22. FatBoi says:

    @ Pro I can believe that.

  23. Andrew says:

    ^^^
    Thank you Pro.

  24. A.J. Crew says:

    @FatBoi

    I know who Horus is. In an earlier reply, I said to Andrew that Horus was the sky “god”. I’ve done my research. I know the lyrics to “Power”, I know he’s talking about suicide. “Now this would be a beautiful death (jumping out the window, letting everything go).” I’m aware. And who said “Power” couldn’t be about the shit ya’ll spewing? I didn’t. I’m just mad ya’ll bringing the Illuminati and Freemason shit into this conversation like this is gonna affect our day-to-day lives. Does this affect the way we interact with our loved ones? Our neighbors? Our relationships with people that we hold close? NO. Lowkey, Kanye and Jay are most likely playing this secret society shit because they know it sells records. Not because they believe it.

    I am a Christian. I read the Bible. I have reasons to believe in the 2012 shit. The world is getting crazier each second, I know. I just hate that all these politics have to come into play when we are talking about ENTERTAINMENT. It’s MUSIC, you can either choose to agree or disagree. If you disagree, why make it unenjoyable for others by bringing unnecessary shit to something that ISN’T THAT BIG OF A DEAL??? It’s a song. Not a religion. At the end of the day, you are ultimately responsible for your own. Not Kanye and his “Illuminati mind control.” And in the words of @SoundscapeCHI, we all know 2Pac is controlling the New World Order from Arizona.

  25. MaggMylemink says:

    @THAT’S THE PROBLEM PRO PEOPLE JUST TAKE THAT LINE AND RUN WITH IT WITHOUT EVEN LISTENING TO THE WHOLE DAMN SONG…..THAT WAS WELL PUT. BUT I LIKE I SAID AT THE END OF THE DAY I CAN CARE-LESS WHAT THAT MANS BELIEFS IS AS LONG AS HE KEEP MAKING GOOD MUSIC FOR THE CONSUMERS THAT’S ALL THAT MATTERS.

  26. A.J. Crew says:

    PS: The title of the post was “Kanye’s New Chain Cost $300K”. And only 5 of the (now) 25 comments are actually about the chain. #ummmmm

  27. MaggMylemink says:

    @ A.J. Crew WELL PUT BOTH OF YOU’RE LAST POSTS!

  28. FatBoi says:

    Look man I think this was a good convo (not a debate) and kanye could get a chain with Satan fuckin Jesus in the ass long as he dont pull no techno shit Imma listen to that shit every chance I get. but I do not believe on coincidences everything has a meaning behind it. how do we know if The illuminati means us any harm? s.n being linked to a secret society doesnt improve sales makin a dope album improves cells I predict him or jay is going to make a song to kill all that shit. @ a.j crew your hella funny, most days I agree with you totally so dont mistake this debate for an argument. Im just as clueless as anybody else. Personally I hope we do experience the end of this world as we know it. fuck this world I hope Karl Marx is right over everyone and we have a rise of the working class, thwn we’ll se who’s on who”s side. The End Have a great day my brothers love and respect to you all.

  29. FatBoi says:

    I totally just contadicted myself by saying it wasnt a debate then saying it was. lol I told yall I was dumb.

  30. A.J. Crew says:

    @FatBoi

    Yeah man, it’s all good homie. Just wanted to make my point known, etc. Good “debate”. LOL

  34. FatBoi is Back says:

    ok first off the above comment is hilarious, second man I been sittin here just brushing back up on my Ancient Egyption books. shi,t and Man, this is gonna sound crazy, but dog I really dont know what all the hoopla is about., or even why I got so caught up in it. I been reading this shit and going over the similarities and yeah Horis is Osiris and Osiris is the god of the underworld, but I think that where Christian minded people like myself get caught up in all of this is THE WORD “underworld” when we see that word we tend to compare it with hell when the two doesn’t necessarily have to be linked, because possibly the egyptian people didnt believe in hell like the jews. Possibly the “underworld” TO THEM is Somewhere you go when you die, simply. Not like the christian afterlife which is mildly different, because no where in the bible does it say that you go up to heaven and its this place thats like 10 blocks past outerspace and gods decides to either let u stay or knock the bottom out the floor, IT DOESNT SAY THAT althought it is the popular belief. So I HAVE FIGURED IT OUT. FINALLY THE ANSWERS TO ALL OF OUR QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS………….. ready?????????? KANYE IS AN ANCIENT EGYPTION!!!!!!!!!!! IM a GENIUS……..FOH, LBNR (laughing but not really)

  35. pro says:

    listen egyptians had nothing to do with illuminati it was nt even formed way back then freemasons started with the crusadars “knights templar” then resurfaced during the enlightment ers around the 1700′s it waas never evil the church and monarchies branded this groip evil because they used their brains, so they got scared of revolts and getting overthrown by people with some actual intelligence! this is why they freemasons became secret to avoid getting killed or burned at the stake …america is built on the principles of free mASONRY free world free mind to think and better ones self not get dogmatized by religions force on you by ur parents …hence” illumination ” to glow or enlighten ones mind to think out side the box

  36. FatBoi is Back says:

    ^ I was joking, but thanks for the info. it is very believable I hop on my quest to gain this knowledge.

  37. do says:

    @MaggMylemink that was one of the dumbest post ive ever read. pick up a book and read, who trusts the media? The media doesnt cover the real shit thats goin on. How many of yall seen this on the news in Chicago

    http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE5662VM20090707

    I guess thats BS too.

    Illumnati/Free Mason hold the top postiions of every company. They are our world leaders. Any posisiton of power they control it. I went to a HS with saudi princes and oil tycoons grandkids. Its simple either your allowed in (via secret society, skull&bones, masons etc…..) or your not. But like all power models someone has to do the grunt work. Musicians and actors have more power becuz they influence, and thats dangerous….no one man should have all this power…..If you heard keep ur head up 100 times a day it would subconciously change your mood and thoughts. Do u think its a accident, dr king, malcolm x, panthers, pac, jfk, big are dead? They had the power to move the masses and were threats to the structure. Military complex: we go to war take land and get money to rebuild it after war, jail system: thats is the illumnati right infront of us. Divide and conquer.

    I dont know my bill of rights or the constistution but I can recite every rhyme from Ready to Die, tell you how much Jay Z worth and that lola broad has a fake butt. They keep us confused and focused on everything worldly and were blinded by it. Even if the illumnati stuff isnt true all u lose was some time and a some brain power but if it is were going to lose our souls and earth.

    The worse part is people completely discounting it and syaing it doesnt affect them……if your on earth everything that happens affects u!

  38. do says:

    and it may not be illumatni and masons remove the wordplay. from now on were going to say the 13 familes that control 90% of the worlds wealth and their friends. and talk about the actions.

  39. RMEG says:

    I TOLD YOU! And they recruiting young artist as well. Everybody thought I was crazy when I commented on reno album cover that its illuminati don’t be surpise if everybody doing music is freemasons. Horus stands for the devil enough said

  40. Anonymous says:

    Damn I’m sore….
    I got jumped into the Free Masons tonight. 70 seconds in the circle no defense. Held my own tho. Almost hit Jay in the lip. Hell, I was dizzy but I knew I couldn’t miss that swollen mess posted on top of his chin. Luckily, Almighty Horus gave me the strength to hold it together. Drake and Ye still on the hook though. They jumped me with jewelry on. I saw some of my baby hair in Kanye ring.
    Trying to let it go…..

    @anonymous ha!

  42. thastrings says:

    wow…y’all are some retards on this illuminati conspiracy. go outside and exercise.

  43. Joe Blow says:

    I think all this shit is a marketing tool.

  44. I have a theory..the illuminati is now a PHENOMENON…our imaginations have ran off with our reality. Its funny. A high ranking freemason will tell you if you ask the right question….comparing the bible to ancient egyptian history is the key….NOW. If you want shit to run wit, “Graduation” means 1)grammar school, 2)high school 3) college….so THREE levels you nincompoops. So obviously, he is done HIDING and SHARING which we should APPRECIATE. Second, he GRADUATED from a JESUS PIECE to a HORUS PIECE..one to the next / ON TO THE NEXT..and hey if you REALLY wanna get all funny wit the shit, aint no rapper from AKRON OH rockin that shit…#6 will be in chicago…have fun with that bullshit thats completely untrue but exactly how it is….Oh wait…yall remeber XCLAN right ?? ANYBODY CURIOUS AS TO WHY BROTHER J WORE AN ANKH….#hmmmmm Id say Andrew was wit illuminati except the site is losing steam j/k

  45. Griffen312 says:

    A whole lotta nothing. Why is how much a nigga chain cost a story and its still oil dumpin in the ocean???

    GTFOH fuck yo chain and fuck yo couch, nigga!! U look like an ass.

  46. Ralph Uhuru says:

    Well, not much of Kanye West style fan, but regarding the medallion: Learn the meanings. The image is of an ancient African deity, known as Horus in Greek (Egyptian) history, but the true Khemetic (Kemet being the African name for the land that the Greeks renamed Egypt) name is Heru. Regarding religion, the story of Heru pre-exists Christianity, but tells the entire story of the “Christian” religion. Heru- born out of divine intervention, raised to conquer evil and defeat the evil Set (Satan), and re-establish greatness to the land. Look it up family.

    And I don’t know about this Illuminati business that seems to be flooding the gates of hiphop and popular culture, but what I do know is that it’s time for Black folks to start worrying about handling their own business in their own neighborhoods. Kanye and Jay-Z and Drake aint oppressing you: Because you have a choice of whether or not you want to listen and watch. Make sure that your necessities are guaranteed (or at least available) when shit hits the fan and that you’re making the proper preparations to protect you and yours (physically, mentally, spiritually) in the days to come.

    And by the way… Talib Kweli said it best, “…like slaves on a ship talking about who got the flyest chain.”

    Liberation As A Lifestyle,

    Uhuru

    Do yall Niggas even know what the Illuminati really was? it was a Templar set back from the post middle ages.Not this youre talking about now. Read about the true meaning of Friday the 13th. As for Masons, read about the F&A. Your damn uncles and cousins are probably one. Like saying my brother is a Kappa or Que. Get a clue and stop blaming everything on conspiracy theories. Thats how they keep you niggas blind, by lack of knowledge. Now thats the real conspiracy.
