On Friday night (Sept. 17), the Atlanta rapper hopped on Instagram and called out Rafaello and Co., a New York City-based jewelry operation, and Baby was not pleased. “Now @rafaelloandco y’all Kno better then to sell ME of all people a FAKE Or anything that could be called a FAKE!” he captioned a video of four iced-out finger rings and a diamond-flooded watch. “I stand on my name the same way y’all should! Ain’t no such thing as a mistake when that money involved ♂️!! Don’t Fuccin Play Wit me Cause when I’m on that I’m on that #ansameforyoupussyassniggas #dontplaywitbaby.”
XXL has reached out to Rafaello and Co. for comment.
The Voice of the Heroes rapper’s jewelry has been the topic of discussion this week. A few days ago, he posted a picture of a $400,000 limited-edition Patek Philippe watch on Instagram. The time piece was called out as fake by watch experts. Baby later reached out to Petek about the issue on IG. “@PetekPhillippe see this why I need to be on the list!! After market jewelers going to make me do some I shouldn’t be doing,” he wrote on his IG Story. It is unclear if Baby’s gripe with Rafaello and Co. is related to the watch debacle.
The revelation about Baby’s watch came a couple days after Lil Durk warned rappers about fake jewelry on Instagram. “Stop buying all this jewelry without knowing what you doing,” Durk posted on his IG story on Sept. 14. “A lot of the shit fake and some is overpriced. Get one jeweler and stick to em. I’m telling you, y’all ass gone be pissed when the truth come out.”
It looks like Durk may have been right.
