The Real Housewife of Cook County

Stupidity or Status?


T-pain debuted his newest piece of jewelry this past weekend right before his Hot 97 Summer Jam performance.  He had the Twitterverse in an uproar due to this opulence of his icy neckwear.  People have been calling him a minstrel, buffoon and bamma among other things.  Some people feel like he should do whatever he wants with his money and he has a right to waste it accordingly.  The chain is said to weigh 10lbs with 197 carats and cost a whopping $410,000.  I hope he doesn’t have the same fate as so many rappers before him and have the chain snatched by a crackhead on  a seedy side street. Here’s what T-Pain had to say in defense of his “Big Ass Chain” via twitter:

“..Let’s celebrate the fact a black man can have things like this and still care for 3 kids and wife in a $6 million house with 32 cars. Oldest child 5 and already got 4 million in her own account. I don’t do dumb sh*t like this till I know the fams good. so don’t judge me from what I buy. Judge me from what I do. Cuz it’s so many artists that put themself before their family.”

 What do you think is his chain a showcase of stupidity or is it the ultimate status symbol?
