October 24, 2011 ⋅ by Ben Baller ⋅ 4 comments

but this was also a FAT BOY weekend, word to Q!
LIFE IS GOOD!
my boys from worldstar are finally leaving town today and thank god, because these motherfuckers took shit to a whole different level!
man, we ate and ate and ATE!
smh

friday, I finally went down to the new Diamond Supply co. headquarters and warehouse…. shit is BIG
grabbed a bunch of gear for the kids for my last Niketalk summit

the guys there BBQ’d up some burgers and we reminisced about some old school times with Jonas

then, I finished some work….
then linked up with the WSHH crew

headed down to Fairfax aka the block and my boys did some damage…. dropped like $5k on gear and kicks from FlightClub and Diamond Supply…..


that’s Q right there swagged out on the Disney X Harley collab lmao! (JK)

and then… got ready to get some dinner


I mean…. the spaghetti is “as good” as La Scala…. but La Scala doesn’t have KOBE MEATBALLS on their spaghetti! smh… TOO good! AND THEN WE KILLED LIKE 3 DESSERTS!
smh, fucking Q! damn son

went back to the telly and chilled in the lobby and the room talking shit and smoking splifs…. I was amazed and baffled on how Kat Stacks is really about that Bottom Bitch life. No offense to Q because he manages her…. but when she gets out of jail, hopefully she has a story to tell or sell

Saturday

went to work and still working on this BIG PROJECT which will be done today but not ready to be announced for another 5-6 weeks….. finished some other work and then had to start some new jewels for the homey J from Worldstar….

my boy Aron came in town and copped a watch and is staying in a 5 star telly next to my house… so I dropped off the watch to him and he laced me with some fresh ass Orthopedic sandals…. and I laced him with some more diamonds!

then I met up with the WSHH crew and we headed out to get a massage….
I’ve got a lot of massages before, but this one was recommended highly by a 5 star hotel concierge, so we gave it a shot and mannnn…. I was getting stretched out like a fish out of water….. my back stepped on. elbows to my back like a WWE match… but the end result was amazing… I got a LOT of tension worked out

after that, got ready for dinner….. Fogo de Chao swag


man….. their house special beef is amazing….
and I WENT THE FUCK IN…. MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE!


had to tap out… no more meat. PAUSE

then we shook immediately to spark something up and then headed over to see a midnight movie….
I never seen dudes try to get swagged out to go see a movie lol

swaggy


my boys Tea and Q had a different pair of Cazals on everyday…. I was lightweight surprised….
of course the vintage eyewear was provided by my man Corey Shapiro

now about the movie?
THAT SHIT WAS BULLSHIT! that movie sucked! fuck that movie!
that’s all lol

Sunday

woke up early as hell…..
had to meet up with Pro Skater PLG who has won countless tourneys and X-Games

he came down to the Slauson and copped a watch and is getting 2 custom pieces made and we just started a nice new relationship…. he posted a pic on instagram of what he copped and it got to the popular page! haha

then I shot straight over to LA Live for the NT summit….

everyone except one dude was late….
all in all, we had around 25 heads show up and we had a good time, we met up at ESPN zone and not for the food, but for the good company and to chop it up about whatever…. we also watched a lot of football as they had on EVERY single game on…. it was really cool. I got to meet some new cats and answer any questions they had about anything pretty much….

we rented out the upstairs Arcade area and had it completely to ourselves. so since we ate lunch there, they gave us double points and so we go it IN…. I mean 25 cats but there were waaaaay more than 25 games up there









the games were a lot of fun…. and thank god we had it blocked out!
I gotta come back here and get my big kid on

then we went down to get everyone laced up with diamond supply gear and some xbox gears of war 3 games




everyone was able to get some tees, hoody’s, sweatshirts and accessories… also those who had XBox 360s got a free gears of war 3 game

THANK YOU AGAIN TO XBOX, SA STUDIOS
BIG THANK YOU TO DIAMOND SUPPLY CO. FOR THE GEAR…..


this was 3/4 of the attendees…..


my boy Rob has been on NT since 2001 or so… came to the 1st So Cal NT summit and hasn’t missed any that I know of… maybe one. good to see you my G, also good to see a few cats I ain’t seen in a while.

thank you everyone who came out. was only a 2-3 hours of your day
and it was a beautiful day

I shot out of downtown and took the LA expressway aka 6th street

I can’t drive down this street later today though because OBAMA is coming to town and that fucks off traffic major!

btw, the publicity team of McDonalds corp hit me up and speaking of Summits…. they want me to put another McRib summit together lol! and they’re gonna pay for it!!!! haha, not kidding!
crazy! man I’m gonna be 200lbs before the year ends.

I went home to take a nap…. my simple ass woke up hella hella late!

I was supposed to hit up halloween horror nights at Universal with my boy Ry Good, but I just couldn’t get out to that way and it was cold as fuck and I didn’t feel like waiting in line at all!

but I linked up for my last night with my Worldstar fam and we headed over to MyPatio to get it in…..
we had to celebrate a future collab with WSHH & IFANDCO

you already know….. Dom P rose’ my favorite rose… even maybe more than PJ rose’

THANK YOU Q, TEA AND J FROM WORLDSTAR! mad love homey
y’all came here iced out and are leaving too icee… “SO ICEE ENTERTAINMENT!” haha

anyways,
it was a pretty basic weekend….. but I got to give back

remember, I’m shipping out the prizes to the winners of my twitter contest tomorrow

I hope you’re doing well up there with Jesus, teaching him some shit he thought he already knew…. had a long talk with Kevion the other day and we cracked laughs on the good times.

Vintage Jewelry… and other Jewels

October 21, 2011 ⋅ by Ben Baller ⋅ 10 comments

before we even get into anything vintage…..
man I’ve been eating good! lol ok, we’ll get into that later!

We have 1 all gold only baby jesus (medium sized) around and I honestly don’t like it, but for those who can’t afford to buy our iced out once, this is what we have.

We stopped making the prong set gold only ones because I don’t want some idiot like Aviannes or someone to get one in their hands and then put fake stones in it and because our name is lasered on the back, have them try to talk crazy….. but this is the last one in gold only that we have right now

the other night, I made a special delivery of Jesus pieces and some earrings and some bracelets and all types of jewels to my boys over at WorldStarHipHop….. man…. man….


all I gotta say is…. the internet PAYS! because my boy Q and his team are doing it! they got every size Jesus piece you can imagine…. and they’re getting a couple more! lol that official 41mm day date II president really is on some Obama shit…. def not ever on some ruin the economy Bush bullshit. (sidebar, Obama didn’t have a choice, Jesus himself couldn’t have got us out of all this fuckery in a 4 year term… but Barack did kill off a lot of big time terrorists! lol POW!)

so after all that, we decided to drive over to the Belvedere room to avoid any and all riff raff….

that truffled mac and cheese….. delectable!


that short rib….. murked it!

so now let’s back to the vintage jewelry
we recently bought back some jewels from a client that copped these off my uncle 15 years ago!!!!
damn!
I mean, that’s when everything was 14k pretty much and 18k or 24k wasn’t that rare to see in our shelves…. so when I seen these joints, I was like damn!

this should raise some eyebrows….


a vintage ILLUMINATI piece is very sick! now even though I don’t believe in no secret society shit… this is an ill piece to have and I’m sure we won’t have a hard time selling it. NOBODY uses Baguette diamonds anymore… and the way the bail is made is so vintage old school…. the channel set is so cool to look at. I wonder who the original owner of this was, because it was passed around a few times… #killuminati all through your body

next….



14k white gold Nefertiti charm and it’s 2 sided…. pretty cool that my uncle made this such a long time ago…it’s heavy as fuck and really clean.

and to really spit on someone’s face???

on my King Tut shit…. vintage gold chains are so much more expensive these days because EVERYONE who had them in their stores has melted them down!

the gold Figaro is sold and 28″ long and 275 grams 18k gold
the gold bullet chain is 14k gold, 32″ long and 120 grams
the gold cuban is 7mm thick and 32″ long and 175 grams 18k gold
ya dig!!!!!

so now back to some newer type jewels…..
my boy JSplif from Far East Movement really wanted a grill made….

he may ice it out later, but he wanted it simple…. 6 teeth, yellow gold
btw, I don’t make grills anymore, only for homies

and something for the ladies….
another 2 sided piece




Mickey Mouse ears…. all yellow gold, one side white diamonds, one side yellow diamonds; made for those Mickey Mouse fans who just love Mickey and his Ears lol. if I made a bail on this, it could be a mans charm if he was secure enough with his sexuality…. anyways

so last night again, I got it IN at Mastros…. started with the wedge salad which was crazy!

then I went all the way IN with this Waygu Kansas Bone in Strip Wagyu steak! we had the lobster mashed potatoes and creamed corn and sauteed mushrooms and I killed all of it!
seen the homey Derrick Rose walking in while we were walking out…. he was in a new body Alpina 750Li B7….
crazy part is that a few hours later his boy who was driving got a dui. damn

aite y’all

DON’T FORGET FOR MY #NT FAM
the Summit is this Sunday at ESPN Zone at the Nokia LA Live center at 12pm
meet in the lobby I guess… we’ll get some food, watch the games and then maybe bowl or play some games. I have a lot of giveaways to my NTer’s who have a legit NT username(sorry, you can’t make one now, it takes up a a month to get one). shout out to Diamond Supply Co. and Nick Diamond for all the gear!

everyone have a great weekend…
shout out to my boy Drizzy Drake. happy bday fam, sorry I can’t make it to your party in Vegas…. I’m on some grown man stay at home and be bitter shit lol

PEACE!
