The Top 15 Rap Crew Chains Of All-Time

No Limit Records

They say clothes make the man. In the case of hip-hop, the chain makes the crew. The blind sine of a crew’s signature pendant can help brand your label and give aspiring artists something to strive for. A beautiful chain can be the signature of your crew’s success and make you the envy of the streets. Sometimes nothing can mean more for your credibility as being seen in the diamond glitter of a crew’s trademark chain.

Over the years, hip-hop crews have produced some extremely memorable pieces for their artists to sport in public. Who could forget the golden simplicity of the Roc-A-Fella chain or the sheer functionality of the G-Unit Spinner?  In an effort to salute the best, XXL has decided to rank the top 15 crew chains of all-time today.

In the words of unhip grandmothers’ everywhere: “Bling, bling.”

    I don’t have a problem with the chains listed, as all of the classic squad pieces are accounted for, but really? 1017 Brick Squad at number 6 over the likes of Ruff Ryders, Cash Money and Dipset? C’mon son. Those logos and chains are ICONIC. They were so recognizable in the 90′s and early 2000′s that every kiosk in the mall sold knock off versions and people bought that shit like it was Apple stock. If I saw those 1017 chains without that photo I’d have no clue who the hell they belonged to.

    #7 That’s not the Dipset pendant. That was Santana’s “A” tag outfitted with wings.

    No excuse for roc to be over Death Row! Death Row has the most famous symbol of all labels and was the premier label during raps best years. Can you jay’s dick out of your mouth XXL and be a lil unbiased.
