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!
Chris Graham Reveals Best Advice Cousin Drake Has Given Him
There’s a new member to the OVO Sound family. Drake’s Toronto-based label is expanding it’s roster, and this time the new addition is actually family.
Drizzy has signed his first cousin Christopher “Royalty” Graham to OVO.
If you couldn’t tell from the last name, the Memphis-bred rapper is actually blood-related. His father and Drake’s dad, Dennis Graham, are brothers, and it’s safe to say music definitely runs through their genes.
We caught up with the new signee, who now just goes by the stage name Chris Graham, at the 2017 American Music Award’s about his upcoming project, who’s a better singer him or Drake, and the best advice his big cousin has given him.
