    i think maybe its because them labels are not wasting their money on it. Or maybe even cause their artists refuse to do so. Im pretty sure the artists don't even want to rep it either.

    there really arent any lables like that to do it, and the labels that could do it dont want to spend the money.

    but that 🤬 was always hot imo.

    it's prolly because the relationship between label/artist is not friendly these days. u wouldnt wear the sign for some people who told u how your album should sound either

    Truth is right the relationship between the artist and label has changed over the years there isn't as much love its strictly business.

    i liked the double r chain, the no limit tank, and the death row chain.

    i never really cared for the roc chain. it was an r, a record, and a bottle of champaign.

    when you break it down like that it sounds wack
    but it also lets you know where jay's mind always was
    it shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone that he dumbed down for his audience to double his dollars

    Well excessive jewelery has become less popular altogether..which is a good thing...about time 🤬 started looking like grown men...but a couple labels still have the chains..they dont all wear them though (for example the Young Money Chain)

    It aint about being grown men. Cuz the pope rocks the dopest chains around. You are confusing growing up with conformity. Please stop.
