Stevio...LA LA Lovin' It?

I'm British-born Chinese from Bristol, UK. I’m LA-based. I’m a hip hop aficionado. After 15 years in London I moved to LA to pursue a new career and outlook on life.

Back in the 80s I was a DJ. In the 90s I contributed to the world's first street style exhibition at London's Victoria & Albert Museum. In 2011, I had my first interviews published. Today, I’m keeping busy with music, art, photos and writing.

Not 'stoopid def'...just plain stoopid!

This is just dumb! "Rapper Lil' Jon has been added to the Guinness Book of World Records as the owner of the largest diamond pendant ever."

You have no idea how much money these Hip-Hop stars earn (Jay-Z $260m, Jermaine Dupri $60m...). Don't forget the producers like Timbaland and Scott Storch (50 Cent). I don't have any Lil' Jon tunes myself, but somebody's buying his tunes! Check this out: this fool paid GBP250,00 (US$500,000) for his ugly ass pendant! It's way over the top, dog! And of course the jeweller, Jason of Beverly Hills, is happy to take you to the cleaners. His website says "every reasonable effort has been taken to ensure the diamonds chosen come from legitimate sources..." Ah, Lil' Jon can sleep soundly now! Pah!

Here are the stats: the `Crunk Aint Dead' pendant weighs in as the world's biggest - it's 7.5 inches (19 centimetres) tall, six inches (15.2 centimetres) wide, and one inch (2.5 centimetres) thick. It's nearly 12 pounds (5.4 kilograms) and features 73 carats of diamonds?! 3,756 genuine round-cut white diamonds set in 18-karat yellow and white gold. Stoopid!

So Lil' Jon, aka Jonathan Smith, says, "I'm glad the Guinness World Records folks acknowledged me and my `Crunk Aint Dead' piece. I spent a load of money on that chain. "I had no idea I would break a record and be recognised for it. It's an honour... I grew up reading and hearing about people and celebrities who break records in the Guinness world records book and it always fascinated me. Now I'm on the list."

Lil' Jon's chain is gonna be the start of the end: "Let's just see how many rappers try to outdo my pendant and break my record."

What is the Guinness World Records? It'sthe universally recognized authority on record-breaking achievement. First published in 1955, the annual Guinness World Records book is published in more than 100 countries and 20 languages and is one of the highest-selling books under copyright of all time with more than 3 million copies sold annually across the globe. Guinness World Records celebrated its 50th anniversary edition in 2004, a year after the sale of its 100 millionth copy.
