Kid Cudi stepped out at the star-studded Met Gala fundraising event which was held at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, wearing a jaw-dropping Ben Baller and KAWS diamond chain worth over $1 million to go along with his Louis Vuitton outfit.
The one-of-a-kind 18-karat gold piece, which Ben Baller says is “the biggest chain of my entire 17-year jewelry career, features a diamond-encrusted version of KAWS’ iconic Holiday Space astronaut figure a fitting choice for the rapper. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, Ben Baller revealed the astronaut’s iced-out backpack actually opens up, allowing Cudi to store his emergency weed in there.
This is the most detailed and intricate piece of jewelry I’ve ever created in my entire career, Ben Baller wrote on Instagram along with close-ups of the chain. “From the micro pavé setting on the wrinkles & hoses in the astronaut suit to the functional backpack(has a secret compartment).
Thank you KAWS for trusting me to make this piece to the superior KAWS standard. Thanks to my entire team we had to shut down our entire factory for 3 months to make this. Thank you kid cudi for the vision and our friendship, we always take it to the next next next level.
