Young spoke about the chain and how much did the specific piece of jewelry meant to him.
“I want to show y’all probably my favorite chain. Quay got it for me my rookie year. It was like my welcome to Atlanta gift he gave me. There’s a lot of diamonds in here, I ain’t never really asked Quay what the details were. I don’t wanna get all into detail, but I was just appreciative of it.
You got the 11 at the top, got the basketball. After he posted this and made a whole chain with it, it was kinda like a no-brainer, everybody started calling me it just randomly on the street. It wasn’t even just in arenas anymore, It was everywhere. So probably my favorite piece I got.
First, I was wearing it for like, for a minute, especially around the house. I had never gotten a chain. I mean, I’m from Oklahoma. So [laughs] coming down to Atlanta, getting this. Quay definitely opened my eyes to more jewelry. I don’t bring it out too much though. I don’t bring out too much, only certain times.”
