Make the crew, get the chain. It’s a time-honored tradition in hip-hop. Who could ever forget the footage of Jay-Z and Damon Dash welcoming Kanye West to Roc-a-Fella Records by draping the label’s chain over his neck? The concert scene was included in the waning seconds of 'Ye’s classic “Through the Wire” video. Young Jeezy welcomed former XXL Freshman Freddie Gibbs to his Corporate Thugz label by putting the crew's piece around his neck this past weekend. But which crew had the hottest all-time chain in the game? The Roc’s record chain was pretty mean, but then again so was the No Limit tank piece. How about the Ruff Ryders’ R? Young Money’s interlocking Y and M stands out, not to mention, it’s pretty flattering to the New York Yankees iconic logo. The debate of which crew rocked the hottest chain can go on and on, but here's some of the best bling.
