Rappers tend to show off their Jewelry as a means of a status symbol and trophy.
Diamond-covered chains are a visible proclamation that they've escaped immense poverty through the success of their music; they aren't just a flashy and superficial showing of wealth.
They are a lavish celebration of a come up from a life of struggle and destitution.
Why some rappers LOVE showing off their wealth and why audiences have never grown tired of hearing about it is because it's a representation of status.
At the end of the day, money and all that comes with it is at the center of most peoples' ambitions.
Hip hop doesn't hide that.
Yes, it's about artistry.
