2 Chainz Tries On World’s Most Expensive Kobe Bryant Hats
Rucuss staffApril 13, 2016
2 Chainz is paying homage to Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant.
As part of his season 3 GQ web series Most Expensivest Shit, Chainz wears two pricey fitted caps that were made in the Black Mamba’s honor. For the special Bryant episode, the ColleGrove rapper met up with New Era executive Emma Oldenkamp who had the hats.
According to Oldenkamp, they are limited edition caps with only eight of each being made. But they’re also crafted using “exclusive” and “premium” material
The “Purple Diamond Cashmere Cap” comes in purple Italian cashmere to represent where Bryant was raised. It features five yellow diamonds to represent his five championships, and gold snakeskin to rep his nickname: Black Mamba. The price tag for the cap costs $24,000.
The “Black 24 Cap comes in black lambskin and features a “24” logo in 18-karat gold with a bill made of python and gold snakeskin. It retails for $38,000.
“I’m the hugest Kobe fan in the world,” 2 Chainz said. “He’s put his blood, sweat, and tears into this game. The fact that he’s played for 20 years, you have to applaud him.”
But despite his love for the Lakers, Chainz won’t be buying either hat.
“We appreciate you, Black Mamba,” Chainz said. “But your boy Tit will not be placing a bid for one of those expensive ass fitted caps.”
Both caps will be available exclusively at the TEAM LA store at Staples Center on April 13, the day of Kobe’s final game against the Utah Jazz.
