After Rick Ross’ album Mastermind hit number 1, the rapper made sure to reward some of his friends who appeared on the album with him.

Instead of simply giving a pat on the back, Ross hit up jeweler Rafaello & Co in New York and purchased 6 watches to give to some of his friends; DJ Khaled, Wale and Meek Mill to name a few. HipHollywood exclusively talked with jeweler, Gabriel Jacobs to talk about the rapper’s purchase and how excited he was to pick out the bling.

“He was so chill,” Jacobs tells us. “He is my boy and one of my main clients. He is always buying crazy stuff so we really appreciate him.”

He added, “There are all these reports that he owes money to jewelers, but he is not like that. He does not owe anything to anybody.”

Jacobs tells us that the rapper purchased 6 Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watches which totaled to up to a near 250k. We are told that the watches ranged from stainless steel, gold and white gold.

“I’m making another one for Ross right now. It’s crazy. It’ll be done in about a week and I can’t wait to show it to him,” Gabriel said. “It’s ridiculous.”

Mastermind, Ross’ sixth studio album, sold 179,000 copies in the week ending March 9 and scored number 1 on the Billboard 200.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite

Published

on

One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
