In yet another milestone to his chain game, Canadian rapper Drake has added yet another flossin chain to his already bulging chain collection. A connoisseur of hip-hop jewelry, particularly chains, Drizzy shared an Instagram story showing off his newest baby, an iced out cross-chain designed by Jacob & Co. and thanking the jeweller for making his dreams come true. It seemed that Drake, who is Jewish, has always dreamed of owning an iced out cross-chain, despite it being a popular Christian symbolism.

Chicago Rapper Young QC Sentenced to 99 Years in Prison For Killing Mother
In a shocking twist, aspiring Chicago rapper who calls himself Young QC, whose real name is Qaw-mane Wilson, was sentenced to spend 99 years in prison for having hired a hitman to kill his own mother, Yolanda Holmes, to get his hands on her life insurance policy. This when he was already spoiled and doted on by her. Crazy, huh?
Reportedly, QC hired Eugene Spencer, to kill his mother in 2013. Spencer went to Holme’s house and shot her while she slept. He then later returned to stab her as QC allegedly demanded to make sure that his mother was dead. After her death, QC reportedly drained his mother’s bank accounts dry and went on extravagant shopping sprees and tossing huge amounts of money into the air for his fans.
Cook County Judge Stanley Sacks sentenced QC to 99 years in prison for matricide, and Spencer (the shooter) with 100 years in prison.
