Gunna Flexes 20-Carat Diamond Chain At The Met Gala Under Partnership With Global Crypto Platform Ledger

Gunna has made it clear that you’re always going to catch him being iced out. Complex reported in March that the rapper dropped $100,000 for a “P” diamond tooth — relating to his infamous phrase “Pushin P”.

“P don’t just mean player. P means paper, too. You can be pushing this P with paper,” he explained, according to Complex. “If you’re in this shit and it’s rented, then you’re kicking P. But if you buy this shit and you own it, then you’re really pushing P. You’re spending your hard-earned money. Like, you’re pushing it. You’re standing on this shit. You’re spending millions on it. You’re pushing it.”

The teal-colored stone was provided by Angel City Jewelers’ Isaac Bokhoor and installed by Thomas Connelly. Now, he has linked up with a platform to add on to his bling.

Gunna x Ledger

According to a press release shared with AfroTech, Gunna has partnered with Ledger — the world’s leading and most secure platform for cryptocurrency and digital assets.

For the 2022 Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Benefit, the platform created “a diamond-encrusted chain and pendant to hold his digital assets.” The custom Ledger Nano X was encrusted with the rapper’s signature “P”, as well as was affixed to a white gold chain necklace with over 20 carats worth of diamonds, the press release details.

Ledger's Launch

The crypto platform was founded in 2014, with Pascal Gauthier as its Chairman and CEO. With eight years counting, “over 15% of the world’s crypto assets are secured through Ledger Nanos.”

How Ledger Works
