And a rappers only as big as his chain, the flashier the better
Any rapper in the music industry is only as valuable as the amount of records he can sell. The more records sold, the more money earned. And with more money earned, more is spent — usually on expensive superficial items, such as chains. The chain is thus seen as a symbol of a rapper’s success.
And a rapper, like a chain, is seen only to have aesthetic value, meaning that the appearance of a rapper is often more important than his content. The same could be said of the diamonds and gold in chains, which are valued because of the appearance they project.
