The world’s two biggest rappers both attended the same Independence Day party… But who had the better outfit?
The two hip-hop heavyweights were in Long Island for a glitzy white-themed 4th of July party hosted by Michael G. Rubin, sports entrepreneur and criminal justice reform advocate. It was a star-studded affair, with big-name celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Lil Uzi Vert, Odell Beckham Jr, Travis Scott, and The Chainsmokers all in attendance.
But the biggest stars there were Drake and Jay-Z, who were spotted sharing an animated chat on the dance floor. Jay actually attended the same party last year, where he wore a ‘piece unique’ Richard Mille RM 56-01 reportedly worth over US$2.5 million.
He also wore basically the same outfit he wore last year – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, we suppose.
Hov rocked a terry cloth bucket hat, single-pocket Cuban shirt, chunky sunglasses and Puma sneakers – and spent most of the night chomping away on a big stogie. What a king.
As he usually does, he let his watch do the talking: a rose gold Patek Philippe Nautilus Travel Time Chronograph (ref. 5990/1R-001) worth a solid US$400,000.
This tech-y edition of the famous luxury sports watch combines three highly sought-after complications: a self-winding flyback chronograph, an easy-to-use Travel Time function (dual time-zone), and a date display, coupled with local time.
Drake opted for a slightly more off-white (the colour, not the brand) outfit consisting of a silk bowling shirt over a white tank top, plus a thick diamond chain.
His watch was similarly impressive: a rare Rolex Sky-Dweller ‘2021 Secret Release’ (ref. 326259TBR) worth almost US$1 million.
As the name suggests, this Rolex isn’t available to regular punters. It’s an off-the-catalogue special that’s only offered to Rolex’s biggest-spending customers. Featuring an 18ct white gold case, meteorite dial and almost completely paved with diamonds, this Sky-Dweller comes with a comfy rubber Oysterflex strap with a paved clasp.
The real question is this: who looked better? Personally, I’m more of a fan of Jay’s watch – Drizzy’s Sky-Dweller is sick, but a mere mortal could never pull off something so flashy. That said, we reckon Drake had the better outfit.
We also wonder if the pair were chatting about a potential musical collab… Now that would truly be GOATed. Happy 4th of July.
