Like most rappers, Boosie Badazz prides himself on wearing a lot of bling — chains that are eye-catching, communicate wealth and success, and tell a story of some sort. A lot of rappers use their chains as personal points of pride, and lately, the has trended toward the more ridiculous and over-the-top. Quavo recently rocked a diamond Yoda chain in Migos “Get Right Witcha” video. Offset bought a teardrop chain when “Bad And Boujee” went platinum.
But Boosie may have shut down that discussion for good with his new chain, which is a chain of himself wearing a chain. Feel confused? It’s simple really. According to a post on his Instagram, Boosie enlisted an infamous chain creator known as Ice Man Nick to make this particular replica of his own torso — complete with earrings and yes, a chain — and then wore it out to the club for all to see. One quick view of him dancing wearing this bit of rap game inception is enough to put this chain at the top of any greatest of all time list. Self-referential chains are definitely a strong 2017 look, and Boosie is at the top.
If you’re wondering where you can find more ephemeral rap game love like this, look no farther than Boosie Fade, who pointed out this gem in the first place. Meanwhile, we’re still waiting for Boopac — Boosie’s mixtape ode to Tupac — to drop.
