Drake Is The New Owner Of 2Pac’s 14k Gold Crown Ring Actioned & Sold Over $1M

Drake is the proud owner of a charming piece of 2Pac jewellery that was just sold some days ago for over $1 million at a Sotheby’s auction.

Earlier this week, the gold, ruby, and diamond-encrusted ring, which ‘Pac wore during his last public appearance at the1996 VMAs, sold for $1,016,000.

On Friday, Drake hopped on Instagram to disclose he’s the one who made the hefty acquisition. In a post on his Instagram Story to advertise Travis Scott’s new album Utopia, Drake disseminated a close-up photo of the ring on his finger.

In the meantime, it seems that Drizzy references his recent jewellery purchase in his guest verse on Utopia cut “Meltdown,” in which he raps “I pull out a million to stare at this shit.”

Drake will have a tough time topping his latest purchase, as ‘Pac’s self-designed ring is already deemed the most valuable hip-hop artefact ever sold at an auction.

The 14-karat yellow gold ring “sits atop a diamond-encrusted gold band is the ‘crown’ itself: a gold circlet studded with the three largest jewels in the entire piece—a central cabochon ruby, flanked by two pavé-cut diamonds,” Sotheby described on its website.

“This one-of-a-kind, custom ring was meticulously designed by Pac and is among the final products of his boundless creative energy — a unique artefact from a period of time that is a testament to his enduring influence on hip-hop,” Cassandra Hatton, Sotheby’s Global Head of Science and Popular Culture, summed up.
