his ‘Crunk Ain’t Dead’ pendant from jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills.

5.11 pounds with a total 73 carats of diamonds and the total stone count is 3,756
genuine round-cut white diamonds, set in 18-karat yellow and white gold. The
valuable piece of jewelry will make it into the Guinness World Records, for the
largest diamond pendant on record. “I’m
glad the Guinness World Records folks acknowledged me and my Crunk Ain’t
Dead piece,” Lil Jon said. “I grew up on reading and hearing about people
and celebrities who break records in the Guinness World Records book and
it always fascinated me. Now that I’’m on the list, it feels great.
Let’s just see how many rappers try to outdo my pendant and break my record.
They don’t call me the King of Crunk for nothing!” Since
its first book was released in 1955, Guinness World Records has gone on
to sell over three million copies each year in more than 100 countries. In
