Lil Yachty

Kiddie rapper Li'l Yachty stopped by Icebox Jewelry in Buckhead to pick up an iced out Rolex Sky-Dweller timepiece this week. Yachty, 20, couldn't wait to show off his $125K purchase on

Whenever Atlanta rappers like Li'l Yachty, right, and Slim Jxmmi, left, find spare change in their skinny jeans, they rush to Icebox Jewelry to buy a wrist full of ice chips. That's the way we do it.

Rappers drop a house on worthless ice chips for Instagram 'likes', while real ballers wallpaper their houses with stocks, options and futures.

Black people waste millions of dollars to make other people rich rather than invest our money in our own communities to build dynasties for our children and grandchildren.

    he is so fugly. the watch is nice but he looks a mess. he must have said, "when i get rich i am still gone look the same."

  • Noirluv45

    "Black people waste millions of dollars to make other people rich rather than invest our money in our own communities to build dynasties for our children and grandchildren." ALL OF THIS!

    They mess around and brag and then end up getting targeted. What gets me is they think they are something with all these man-made items on their body that degrade once it leaves the store. They die and leave all this behind. So foolish. They don't realize that it can all be gone in one second.

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Lord I’m not gon complain about not having 1/4 of that and need it no I’m a be grateful for what I? have *sighs*

  • Shamari123

    This is how they go broke so quickly. With all this money he should think about investing or better yet save it up for the future. It still is tricking if you got it tho.

  • Yvonne Chase


  • YouWontSayItButIWill

    The black community is in a state of emergency......smh.

  • Noirluv45

    The good news is that there are Black building building for themselves, for their legacy, and their communities, but they don't make the headlines. I don't want to say we are in a state of emergency as a whole because many of us are doing huge things.

  • NeverSurprised

    Two words — Tyrese Gibson.

    No too long ago he too was bragging about his purchases (including installing a Benihana in his backyard). Today, just a year later, he is begging his friends for money. Our people are slow learners.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    OMG it's been soooooooo long...but finally...FINAL-LEE...a Sandra Rose post, i agree with in it's entirety

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    So raise your hand if you think Lil Yucky and SlimyJimX actually had their stones vetted? Do they keep a gemologist on stand by

  • shun king

    real Rolex with cheap diamonds put into them go to mayors and see what a watch like that cost i doubt Rolex even have a model like that authorized to sale

  • bemetoo

    Goofy doofy silly sexually questionable azz don't know what to do with money

  • imright

    Yachtys face/neck reminds me of a tree trunk

  • Sorry_Not_Sorry

    So Mr Yachty is that a nonnfir the 401k plan?

  • shun king

    lil arab boy smiling like we just got these two suckers and to top it off thousands more want to be suckers just like them two...his dad prolly telling him the virtues of ripping off black and how dumb they are

  • chaisun

    I agree, I see a change more so with the millennials and a tiny foundation they are building upon set by those a little older than them. A lot of them aren't playing around, but like you said those things go unnoticed.

  • Diva4lyfe

    Ignorant as ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kanyade

    his money. he can do what he wants with it. wouldn’t be my choice if i had that kinda dough, though.

  • Kanyade

    oh yeah Rolex=Overrated. my .02

  • pure_rachet

    Does anybody even like lilYachty?

  • Vonn

    Li’l Yachty is a big dummy.

  • NeverSurprised

    Yes, yes and yes.

  • kekeb


  • Noirluv45

    Exactly. The millennials have taken up the torch, and I love seeing it. You're right, they aren't playing around. It's too bad those who are running the race aren't getting the attention.

  • You Could Never

    This boy had mad endorsements and all kinds of money making opportunities going on before he even dropped an album. If he wants to buy himself that timepiece I think he deserves. Somewhere he has a marketing beast behind him. Not sure who it is. But he obviously has one.

  • Look@m3

    I'm convinced the rap game is full of retards. I cant no more..Im done.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    And yet he still looks like a crackbaby with .99 cents brown n serve sausage lips.

  • pure_rachet

    What did you expect? He'd get rich and have a face/ body transplant? No matter how heavy his pockets, he still going to look like a slow ugly, stupid, gay clown

  • Noirluv45

    As I type, I'm watching News One Now and there's a segment on a brother who is using his lottery money to rebuild a Ft. Lauderdale community. Mainstream media will never cover him. We probably wouldn't see it here either.

  • ? Kari ?????????

    Off topic. Jordan Sparks is married and pregnant. I think she’s awesome!!!!!!

  • Darkandlovely617?

    Hey lady ?

  • klwbaby

    I think some of these rappers need to watch the MC Hammer Behind the Music episode....u may think your money will never run out but u can go from 100 million to making commercials for 3M Command Hooks.

  • Shamari123

    Yayyy! I'm so happy for her. She's been through a lot with these stupid guys that did not appreciate her worth.

  • Blaque Mahogany


  • missarewa

    Yayyy that's awesome news

  • Nina Ross

    At least he went broke employing his people

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. I'm just seeing this. I literally typed the same thing.

  • Nina Ross

    If he’s smart this watch was free in exchange for the endorsement.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Sooooooooo. They are saying Tyrese is going to represent himself in his criminal abuse case. Smh. This man must truly be broke and crazy.

  • CookieMobster

    I hope he dropped a house on his momma first. Not Wizard of Oz style but literally bought his mother and himself a home. Paid in full.

  • You Could Never

    Im glad everyone here was thinking of their whole life at 19-20 yo. 401k plans. Was smart at life etc. All of it. And I hope some of us feel so much better this morning for tearing down this child based on his looks and purchasing choices.

    New post.

  • Rayne

    I oughta drop kick his ass. That was dumb.

  • Activist

    Jewelry companies predominantly owned be repressive snotty some even racist white men only promote such blood diamonds aka bling to the blacks .....esp black slum hood rappers whom
    Never had anything not even an education mama or daddy to buy and invest in that bs!!! As long as these young dumb blacks aren’t out here investing in businesses or companies or they’re own communities for the better the bs will never end. They know not many white ppl care to invest in that type of gaudy jewelry ....and these mofos swear they can go back to the poor communities they was raised in to flash thAt bs and not expect to get robbed or killed for it!! This ugly lil man will be broke in less then 3-5years! And the white man knows it! Back to the gutter you go.

  • Miss Thang

    Stupid monkey.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I hate when people call black people monkeys...even when blacks refer to themselves as monkeys and roaches. That is a serious pet peeve of mine.

  • NicoleZee

    If I had that amount of money, I would buy a house paid in full so I won't ever be homeless. These young niggas are purely dumb. Who spends that much on jewelry, you can barely see how to tell what time it is on the damn watch?!! Ridiculous. While these dumb men are buying things they don't need, I wonder if they are also paying child support and making sure their kids will be able to go to college??? Probably not. Sad.

  • NicoleZee

    He probably doesn't even know what a mortgage or life insurance or stock options are, but he can buy a watch trying to impress other people who care nothing about him! Sad. And how do these people know that the jewelry is even real and authentic, where does the store get their diamonds from, do the customers have the jewelry appraised??? I would find all of that out if it were me.

  • NicoleZee

    I'll refrain from saying anything negative because Jordan seems like a really nice person However, read the article on, look at the pics, and tell me what you really think about their union. All I can say is my mom would take one look at him and be like hell naw! She can spot them a mile away quicker than I can sometimes. Good luck to Jordan, I hope this works out for her, but she needs to be careful. I hate to see good people taken advantage of and ending up with frauds.

  • shun king

    i know this guy with a Record Label he had a watch like that went broke sold it for like 15k but paid almost a 100k for it

  • Rayne

    See now that's my thing. How do you know you're getting what you're paying for? Just because everybody shops there don't make it real.


    Lil dum dum is an idiot.

  • NicoleZee

    Damn. What is wrong with people??? They get some money and then spend it all on dumb shit, just like lottery winners. I don't get it. I'd be trying to make sure I always had place to live, a reliable vehicle, and money for my child to go to college. I would not be spending hundreds of thousands on jewelry or taking care of lowlifes. People get money and then they feel like they have to buy expensive things and give money to family and friends. Most past lottery winners are now broke or dead. Very sad.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. White people have been using the "monkey" slur against us for ages. You'd think black people would know not to use it against ourselves.

  • Reina1718


  • Reina1718

    & most likely going 2 look at his fone for the time

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Wrist full of ice chips? they will learn. Im sure he hasnt invested shyt. Yall need to find that Joe Buttons interview, yachty didn't even know what type of deal he had, he's just getting money ?Chile close your mouth

  • Ni Ni

    Sounds like a troll.

  • sunni_daze

    Is it safe to say with all the people on an artist team, a financial manager IS NOT one of them. Poor choices.

  • Ni Ni


  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    Nope. When Buttons asked was he in a 360 deal he didnt even know?

  • i troll it like i see it

    And you will never see anybody with generational wealth buying this kind of nonsense to show off! This is broke ninja shat.

  • i troll it like i see it

    I thought the case had been thrown out, that she What his wife said at least...

  • i troll it like i see it

    Does Rolex really want to be associated with something so tacky? It's like when people put 24 inch rims on a nice Mercedes and cheapen the hell out of it.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    CPS dismissed the case.

  • country57

    It's racist and ignorant.

  • Django the God

    The original value of the watch.

  • KA

    “A fool and his money are soon parted” - Proven over and over and over again. Gratefully the watch will appreciate in value so when he has to sell it (if he didn’t use credit) he will get a return on his investment.’s his money....we can all say what we’d do IF we had it...

  • We Can Do This

    Their money, but making someone wealthy by buying crummy diamonds who doesn't give a damn about you or your people is idiotic.

    That white guy is smiling, like this is too easy. He wouldn't let either of them clean his toilet if the situation was different.

  • Bashi22

    Sandra I love you “ Black People Make Other People Rich” I don’t feel sorry for them when they broke.

  • We Can Do This


  • Yetunde

    I hope he owns his home outright.

  • MsVAllDay

    Come on now with that scrip up in this camp!!!! I'm here for it.

  • Ozad

    that is the most truest words of wisdom I've heard you say in a loooong time Sandra

  • What?

    That used to be my ish before the Dr said leave that processed food alone. LOL

  • We Can Do This

    Capitalism attributes for some black people selfishness. We can only focus on ourselves because we lack real natural resources to build generational wealth. Because of this, most of us live for now and not the future.

  • Timi Godwin

    Why Y'all Criticizing Him? For God Sake The Money Is He's..... He can spend it however He Wishes. When You Make Yours You Too can spend it any how You Want. Some of you here would Even Do Worse If given the chance.

  • shun king

    its was awful dude was selling everything he had cars and all.. than started breaking in his friends houses

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    I hope he keeps the reciept or know a good upscale pawn shop when he go broke and end up on VH1..

  • Trace da Ace

    ok let me just say this.... i am sick and tired of being sick and tired of these young'ins wasting money of stupid stuff. I understand that they are excited and all that because of the "quick cash", but be smart about it. Invest, buy houses, property, stocks, stuff that will make a difference when their 15 minutes are up!! Be smart, not flashy. Hell, I wish I could be a financial adviser to these kids cause to waste money on jewelry, drugs and hoes.....that ain't the business!!! Save!!! ok, I'm stepping of my soap box now. moving along---->

  • Being bad is way more fun

    Black people waste millions of dollars to make other people rich rather than invest our money in our own communities to build dynasties for our children and grandchildren. Amen to this !!!! This is whats wrong with our people and why we go broke so quick and before our white counterparts.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Whelp... This kid is only 20 and by the looks of him he is truly stuck on stupid. According to Complex magazine this doofy looking kid made 13 million in six months!!! If this is true then I guess spending on this piece of ice is not too bad. Hopefully he has honest people around him that can help him to invest and manage this money so that he can have wealth for generations.

  • Not Down With The BS

    D@mn, drop that on a house first. Where are you going to store your iced out watches and leased cars??? Own something!!!

  • sunni_daze

    I watched that interview and he sure didn't know.

  • Mec-One

    Where's lil boat pops at now? That nigga probably got a iced out watch too ........ smh

    Niggas buying expensive watches and still don't know what time it is ......... let that sink in ........

  • ZoraNealHurstonsNiece

    Yep! Invest in thier pockets

    Lol.. Oh okay, lmbo!!!

  • Malcom Flex

    He's dumb AF. I could buy that and I would never. Gotta save money not spend it so foolishly and worse advertising yourself to stick up thugs.

  • Malcom Flex

    Because we can. Some of have assets stocks and property we know better we know to save for family legacy.

  • Nita

    Dumb af. If I had that type of money I wouldn't waste it on that dumb shit...I'll be looking for ways to invest it and make more money

  • Wayup!

    Damn that's a ugly little boy..?

  • Jussjess25

    Facts !! Auntie. Your absolutely right on this post. Dummies dont even know they devalue the jewelry ?

  • Dem Moore

    Well he should return the watch and go buy a cheap house somewhere and rent it out, why they let him get played like that lol. I've seen better watches for alot less. I lived in Chicago good to know the price dropped 700000 since I last lived there. And Atlanta is so expensive for higher end things the areas most people want to live is also very competitive. i guess anybody can throw a shack in the backwoods but I meant like a house that a rapper would buy not the basic American.

  • Ozad

    LOL alright big balla.. Chicago is a big city there are high and low end property in every city

  • Dem Moore

    Its not about that but some people live in citys were the cost of living is very expensive. 150,000 is out of the question. My husband is in real estate we lost everything in 08, and slowly through God and only God got it back. I feel so bad for even people close to me it's seems everything they make goes to rent or the mortage. My sister's rent in Berkeley CA is 6500 while she attends school its crazy.

  • Oya Shango

    Wish they would tech these boys how to intelligently invest in stocks, gold, and real estate. Hard assets is what will take care of you and your children can inherit something other than your debts.

    Stupid Ninga..smh!

  • Dowoop

    Thats what i was wondering. You cant even get a decent condo for $125K

  • Dowoop

    Some people dont understand that if you are spending $150K to buy a house in an unsafe neighborhood why even bother. When we bought our house we wanted to live in an area where our kids would be safe playing on the street, where crime wasnt rampant and where there was a good school.

  • kiddo1

    Birmingham, Ala...4br, 3ba, living rm, Great rm, and a den, large yard, full or partial brick..ijs LOL
