Lil Uzi Vert gets a new chain and hints at "Luv Is Rage 2."
While performing at Coachella on Easter weekend, Philly futuristic rapper Lil Uzi Vert premiered his new diamond encrusted chain on Instagram. Made by custom jeweler Ben Baller, the chain features a prominent pendant with the likeness of Marilyn Manson wearing a Mickey Mouse hat with the number 2 on it.
Both Baller and Uzi shared a photo of the creepy chain on IG and hinted at the upcoming release of Luv Is Rage 2. While the "Money Longer" rapper only posted a couple of emoji -- a medal and flames -- a registered trademark and the number 2, the veteran jewelry maker was a bit more direct. Baller is the boss at If & Co., one of the most sought-after custom jewelers in the hip hop world.
".@liluzivert goin crazy again. This time I made him a 100 carat VS diamond spiked choker bike chain and a 55 carat black & white diamond Marilyn Manson pendant..." Baller posted. "This year has been insane. And this is in the top 3 piece I've ever made in my career and Uzi already has a piece in my top 5 as well. @IFANDCO IS THE ONLY SHOP making custom link chains with invisible locks! We're the only ones putting diamond baguettes as teeth inside custom pieces. Remember spaceships don't come equipped with rearview mirrors! 🚀 #LuvIsRage2 coming soon! 🤘🏼"
Uzi has long professed his admiration for Marilyn Manson's style and music. Can we also expect a feature on his next project?
