Did Jay Z borrow Carmelo Anthony’s chain earlier this year?

Back in July, Hov was seen rocking a very conspicuous necklace while at Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club. Many conspiracy theorists thought it was an Illuminati pendant, but it actually was the Five Percenter symbol. When asked if the Five Percent Nation meant anything to him, Jay answered, “A little bit. By the way, this isn’t even my chain. I stole it from somebody.”

It looks like that somebody could be Carmelo Anthony.

While out celebrating the new year, Anthony’s wife LaLa posted a picture on Instagram of Melo wearing, what looks to be, the same chain Jay Z had on. Carmelo has posted pictures wearing a similar Five Percenter necklace in the past, but this is the first time we have clearly seen this resembling diamond encrusted pendant. Interesting …

According to NPR.org, The Five Percent Nation is an organization that believes:

“Ten percent of the people of the world know the truth of existence, and those elites opt to keep 85 percent of the world in ignorance and under their controlling thumb. The remaining percentage are those who know the truth and are determined to enlighten the rest. They are the Five Percent Nation.”

Nas, Wu-Tang Clan and Rakim are some of many hip hop artists affiliated with the organization.

Update: Jay Z was spotted wearing a Five Percenter chain again last night while at Diddy’s New Year’s Bash in Miami. Maybe Melo inspired him to get his own!

    The 5% nation is a well rooted “culture” meaning “Way of Life” not a religion or a gang just acknowledging ones self and higher purpose in life.. Studying science and mathematics and it focuses on family man woman and child as being the center of our foundation. . Some people take it out of context as being a separatists group or racist organization. But it is very far from that, just because one believes in the upliftment of their family and own race and doesn’t believe in certain books or scripts that were written by other men from their own understanding and the way that they interpretation of life . Doesn’t mean that everyone think that it is the truth. . In the bible it says prove all things and hold fast that which is right!! So 5% nation believes in showing and proving and then they will be a believers
