​Drake Pays Tribute To Tupac With Diamond Necklaces Worth A Reported $600k

Drake has paid tribute to late rapper Tupac Shakur with a duo of blinged-up necklaces, which are reported to be worth a whopping $600,000 (£458,000) together.


The bespoke pieces were created for Drake by jeweller-to-the-stars Jason of Beverly Hills, who shared a video of the necklaces twinkling away in the light.

In the caption, he said he was honoured to have worked on the project, writing: "Thank you @champagnepapi for trusting us with this project. Unbelievable honour to help pay homage to the legend Tupac Shakur."


Drake also shared a short video on Instagram Stories, proudly showing off his new custom jewellery.

"Always wanted twin Jesus pieces thank you @jasonofbeverlyhills," he wrote alongside the post.

The pieces are reportedly valued at $300,000 each and took around five weeks and 150 hours to complete, according to Complex.


Both pendants boast a lavish diamond chain featuring 70 carats of white and natural yellow diamonds, along with over half a kilo of gold.

It's believed the unique necklaces all began with an original concept from Drake, who approached Jason to make his ideas become a reality. From there, the two of them worked on the design until they were happy with it - and several hundreds of thousands of dollars later, here we are.

Mind you, it's not like Drake's exactly short on money, as he's well-known for his particularly flash lifestyle.

He's even got his very own Boeing 767 cargo plane, which puts other celebs' puny private jets to shame.


Drake first debuted his new toy last year, sharing a video of it on Instagram to show off the aircraft's 'Air Drake' livery, a huge owl (the symbol for his record label OVO) and plush interiors with golden sofas and walls.


The video shows the Grammy Award winner strolling around the aircraft, before pointing to Cargojet's President and CEO, Ajay Virmani, and saying: "That guy made it happen right there, that's the man."


That's because the Canadian company had just announced a partnership with the rapper... hence the massive plane.

In a statement, Mr Virmani said: "We are very excited to partner with Drake as our ambassador and assisting him with his logistical needs and requirements.

"We have had a lengthy relationship with Drake and this partnership has grown organically between both parties. Cargojet and Drake are both great Canadian successes, we are thrilled to be partnering together."


Drake added: "Supporting home grown businesses has always been a top priority of mine, so when an opportunity came up to get involved with a great Canadian company I was honoured to do so."
