breaks the internet with his
gold “H-BONE RING”
Frank Ocean’s “Homer” jewelry project just broke the internet with his “XXXL H-Bone Ring” – a 18 carat gold c*ck ring studded with diamonds.
With the release of intimate jewelry Frank Ocean opens a new business branch, which we do not yet know from the hiphop cosmos in this price range. In general, however, you can already find merchandise from rappers and female rappers that have a sexual touch. Genetikk, for example, have already sold luminous condoms.
The luxury of course, comes with a cost: One has to pay 25.ooo Dollars for one of the rings. Frank Ocean’s luxury penis ring can currently be purchased online or by appointment at the Homer Store in New York.
Eko Fresh get’s honored
with the “Ohren-Orden”
On August 21, Eko Fresh will be awarded the Ohren-Orden, or the Ear of Hans-Dietrich Genscher, in Cologne. A prize that is awarded for pronounced social commitment to people who always have an “open ear on the pulse of time”.
Eko receives the Ohren-Orden for his many years of commitment, “with his songs sustainably for the integration and the dismantling of prejudices against migrants”. In addition, it’s emphasized that the Cologne native promotes the integration of Germans and migrants alike.
In the past, Eko has repeatedly drawn attention to himself with positive actions. At the end of last year, he drew attention to the issue of domestic violence in a joint song with his wife Sarah Bora. His track “Der Gastarbeiter” is now part of the teaching material at Baden-Württemberg high schools.
