Lil Jon’s Bling Sets Guinness World Record

Atlanta’s

self-proclaimed King of Crunk, Lil Jon made world record history when he purchased

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

The

$500,000 pendant is 7.5 inches tall, six inches wide, and one inch thick, weighing

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

related news, Lil Jon is currently in the studio working on his first ever solo

album, Crunk Rock. Crunk

Rock will include guest features and collaborations from Good Charlotte, Ciara,

Lil Wayne, R.Kelly, Three 6 Mafia, Rick Rubin, Green Day, and Korn’’s Jonathan

Davis.
