Nothing comes between Swae Lee and his diamonds.
“I sleep with my jewelry on,” the 24-year-old rapper, whose real name is Khalif Malik Ibn Shaman Brown, told the New York Times. “I take a shower and do everything with it. I got a lot of jewelers I mess with. Right now I’m all about who can get me the best price and not who’s just trying to tax me.”
He also gave a shoutout to his favorite jeweler of the moment. “There’s one that showed me a lot of dope pieces, and the name is @krisjewelers on Instagram. They have really good prices and are not just out to bust heads. I like elegant jewels. I don’t like mine super-flashy. I don’t like too much ‘rapper’ jewelry, necessarily.”
But just because the “Black Beatles” singer likes to shop around for a good price doesn’t mean he’s afraid to splash out every now and then, telling the Times, “One of the first big things I bought for myself was a Patek watch. It’s so fly. I don’t even really wear it because it’s too much to bust out.”
Let’s just hope he invested in one of the Genevan luxury brand’s waterproof styles.
