Earlier in his music career, Swizz Beatz was gifted with a $200,000 yellow topaz stone jewelry from Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, the Prince of Dubai. Swizz Beatz later gifted the ring to A$AP Rocky.
“My boy Swizz Beatz gave it to me,” A$AP Rocky told MTV Hive in a 2012 interview regarding his pricey ring. “It was like some, ‘I’m proud of you’ shit, ‘keep up the good work.’ The prince of Dubai gave it to him, and he gave it to me. It’s a yellow topaz stone. and it’s worth 200K if you go to a good motherfucking pawn shop, but if you go to one in the hood you can get 120, 150K. So I’m keeping it in case times get hard.”
