An ode to Gold


Is a gold plaque actually worth more than a platinum plaque?

Raekwon had the right idea on Cuban Linx, because as of today, Gold is priced at $1679.35 per ounce. In August it was worth as much as $1900 per ounce.

I see a lot of rappers talking about “platinum this” or “silver that” but gold is where the real money is at.  Since January 2011, Gold has taken a 35% increase.

Some rappers who did deals on their word instead of signing a contract (happens more often than people think) got a couple leased chains and leased cars as their advance. However, it makes me wonder if the deal might not have been so bad if they asked for gold jewelry?
