A History Of Jewelry In Hip-Hop
The influence of jewelry on hip hop is as clear as an E-class diamond. But did you know the origins of extravagant jewelry predate hip-hop by several thousand years? African king Mansa Musa (the richest person in human history) was rather fond of gold. At the time of his death in 1337 he was worth a staggering $400 billion dollars.

Birdman Wishes Lil Wayne Happy Birthday
Today, (Sept. 27) Lil Wayne turned 33, and as a good father should, Birdman wished his son a happy birthday. We expect that he wasn't able to do so in person, though, as the two are still in the middle of a $51 million lawsuit that Wayne first brought against Stunna in January. Though Birdman is content to continue calling Wayne his son, maintaining that nothing can bring them apart, Wayne is yet to say anything that would imply his feelings have changed since he first called himself a "prisoner" of Cash Money.
