Exclusive Details On The Watches Rick Ross Bought His Boys, Meek Mill, DJ Khaled, Wale



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.

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
