Ciara and Future fake watches

Back in the day, rappers took pride in their gold dookie rope and Cuban link chains. Gold was cheaper by the ounce then, so wannabe rappers had no trouble keeping up with their weekly payments to the trunk jewelry dealers.

Then along came rap tycoon Sean Combs, aka Puff Daddy, who changed the game with his diamond baguette bracelets, iced out pendant necklaces, and Rolex watches. Puffy made diamond bling a perquisite to baller status.

Rick Ross sued by jeweler

Last year the timepiece of choice for the hip hop set was Audemars Piguet (because rappers like Jay Z favor the brand). This year, the timepiece of choice seems to be the legendary Rolex. So much so that jewelers can’t keep the pricey watches in stock.

Rapper Rick Ross has always had a taste for finer things since the days when he punched a clock as a corrections officer in Florida. But a jeweler is suing Ross for absconding with about $90,000 worth of Rolexes that he didn’t pay for. Read on.
