Bling, two earrings, a chain layin' on his chest
He still had it cause they couldn't find it
The Egyptians often buried their pharaohs with jewellery, however it is foolish to think that worldly possessions will be of any use in the afterlife. The Cool spent his entire life in the pursuit of money, but ultimately it is useless once you die.
The chain is the one that The Streets gave MYH (a.k.a The Cool) while he was still alive. The Game’s hit man who killed MYH in “The Die” couldn’t find the chain, so he probably didn’t get to collect the bounty.
