Ross was also reported to have bought the Billionaire III timepiece a few days prior to the purchase, as per an Instagram posting from the company. It’s a similar watch to the one DJ Khaled sunk three million dollars on during January. Floyd Mayweather bought a one-of-a-kind version of the “Billionaire III” for $18 million in the year 2018.

In the meantime, Maino and Jim Jones went shopping for jewels during July. They ended up buying a pair of diamond-encrusted door knocker pendants which they immediately posted on social media to showcase.

A standard of New York City, door knockers were heard by generations of people that grew as they grew up within The Big Apple. Brass objects were mainly used in NYC housing developments and the sound of knocking could be heard throughout different floors.

“This symbolizes the fight right here. In case you’re not aware of what it is, this is a diamond-encrusted and gold-flooded sea,” Maino said in an Instagram post, as his Lobby Boyz brethren Capo moved the handle in an eerie sound from the pendant. “If you understand the struggle, understand the pain, you understand coming from New York City housing, this is apartment 2B, where I grew up with my mother, my father and my brother.”

He said: “Lobby Boyz, you know. Louis Armstrong houses, Nostrand Avenue apartment 2B. It’s not where you are, it’s where you started and where you’re going. We’re at the bottom and have something to say and we are working to share our thoughts and encourage others.”
