Rappers like luxury US replica watches – a lot. That much is obvious. But some rappers (Pusha T, we’re looking at you) have a relationship with luxury timepieces that runs a little deeper than mere showboating – or are so lyrically creative with their showboating that one can’t help but think how lucky luxury brands are to have such geniuses as their unpaid ambassadors. Pusha T’s new album It’s Almost Dry just dropped and, as well as the small matter of it featuring Jay-Z, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Lil Uzi Vert, Don Toliver, Labrinth and Malice & Clipse, there’s no shortage of high quality fake watches brand shoutouts. From Piaget and Cartier to Breitling, Pusha T knows his stuff.
The second single off the album, ‘Neck & Wrist’ showcases a horological lyricism as precise, elegant and technically accomplished as any movement or complication inside perfect replica watches. Take the multi-layered wit and meaning behind the following rhyme:
“The B in the centre of that left and right wing
The only time you’ll ever see me next to Breitling”
Here, Pusha is saying that he would not be seen dead wearing best Breitling copy watches – a brand that makes perfectly decent watches up to the £10k mark, but which are simply not to his taste. However, Breitling make clocks for Bentley cars, so inadvertently Pusha does own a few Swiss made replica Breitling watches.
All Pusha T fans know that he is cheap Rolex fake watches online man through and through. He is known to have at least 13, including Daytonas in platinum, rose gold and steel and a platinum Day-Date II President. Indeed, true to form Pusha was spotted wearing AAA replica Rolex GMT Master II Batman watches on Jimmy Kimmel Live while promoting the new album this week.
When he decided to change the name of his 2018 album from King Push to Daytona after one of his favourite models of Rolex super clone watches store site, he took to twitter to say, “Daytona represents the fact that I have the luxury of time.” Here, he was referring to the fact that younger rappers are forced to put new music out relentlessly to meet the demands of the music industry, whereas a legend of his calibre can move at a more glacial and graceful pace – he controls time, not the other way round. The name also evokes intricate craftsmanship and a somewhat cold and precise lyricism, as well as the obscene wealth that can be gained from a life of crime – and rap.
