At last weekend’s NBA All-Star Game, Lil Wayne showed up in customary Weezy swag – aka million dollar diamond encrusted headphones. The headphones, from Beats by Dr.Dre and $200 a pop, were taken up a notch by the Young Money rapper and revamped to match his gold-and-diamond bedazzled grill (yes, he actually did this, and yes, pigs do fly).
Of course, Carter is known for his flashy and often confusing garb – the bright green spaceman UGG boots in Drake’s “The Motto” video, the fanny pack episode for B.o.B’s “Strange Clouds“, etc. So really, blinged out headphones are simply Weezy’s way off stepping up his game, you know, his way of showing the world that he’s “top dog” while you’re “top ramen.” Ahem, duh.
