Drake Pays Tribute to Tupac with $600,000 Chains
Drake is living that thug life.
The record-breaking “Popstar” is honoring Tupac Shakur with a pair of pendants worth $600,000. Drizzy commissioned jeweler to the stars, Jason of Beverly Hills, for the twin necklaces, which feature the late legend wearing a crown of thorns made of white and yellow diamonds with tears made of white diamonds.
The custom pieces took about five weeks to complete and come with a diamond chain and approximately 70 carats of flawless white and yellow diamonds, and over half a kilo of gold. According to TMZ, each piece cost $300,000.
Taking to his Instagram Story, Drake proudly showed off his new bling. “Always wanted twin Jesus pieces thank you @jasonofbeverlyhills,” he said.

These are the latest additions to Drake’s pricey jewelry collection. He spent over $1 million on a “King of Hearts” necklace and another $600,000 to $800,000 on a matching heart-shaped diamond ring. He also had Virgil Abloh customize his Patek Philippe watch in green diamonds.
Drake has shown love for Pac in the past. Last May, he channeled his iconic look from Above the Rim while courtside at a Toronto Raptors game during the NBA Finals. He sported black jeans and a black hoodie with “100 Miles” written in cursive and a black bandana around his neck, the same outfit Pac wore during the tournament scenes in the 1994 basketball film.
