Slim Jxmmi may have some of the most original gaming-themed jewelry in the world, after the bling-loving hip hop artist just dropped $150,000 on some limited-edition Call of Duty-themed ice.

A best selling hip hop artist known most prominently known for being one half of the Rae Sremmurd duo alongside his brother Swae Lee, Slim Jxmmi has made it known that he’s serious when it comes to Call of Duty.

Having linked up with members of the FaZe Clan to play Call of Duty in the past, the rapper has upped his game this time around by spending a pretty penny on some authentic weapon charms.

Charms hang from weapons in Modern Warfare.

While in Atlanta, he headed into Icebox Diamonds & Watches, a jeweler that is frequented by some of the biggest stars in the music industry.

Coming in with an original request, he pulled out his phone and showed pictures of “custom charms” from Call of Duty that he wanted to rock in real life.

In Modern Warfare for instance, weapon charms are small unlockables that hang on individual weapons to add some flair in the popular FPS title.

Rather than attaching them to real firearms though, the rapper decided to collect a few on a “little charm necklace.”

“You come up with the most craziest ideas man,” the Icebox employee joked while running over the concepts with Jxmmi.

While the finalized designs weren’t on display in the first video, a follow up could be on the way that shows just how the rapper’s idea came out in the end.

Not leaving empty-handed, however, he walked away with a custom pair of iced out $18k glasses, three rings, and orders on the way for custom necklaces to boot.

The custom frames ran Slim Jxmmi a cool $18,000.

This isn’t the first time video game bling has taken the music industry by storm. Activision’s own Crash Bandicoot has been a popular inspiration as the likes of Quavo and Trippie Red have dropped hundreds of thousands on diamond-encrusted chains featuring Aku Aku and Uka Uka respectively.

With this much money being spent on real CoD charms, maybe Infinity Ward could even consider honoring Slim Jxmmi with an in-game item of his own.

Streamer frags out in Black Ops Cold War with Rockband guitar controller

Call of Duty players have been known to whip out some pretty outlandish controllers in years past, and now that trend has continued with Black Ops Cold War with one streaming using a Rockband guitar.

Twitch streamer TheStevieP decided to play the game’s zombies and even multiplayer mode with the absurd controller, but was actually seeing some success with it despite its obvious limitations.

While playing with a guitar may sound impossible, especially with a game as fast-paced as COD, TheStevieP found a button layout setup that gets the job done.

“Walk is down on the strum bar, walking backward is up on the strum bar,” he explained. “To look around, red is to the left, yellow is to the right, blue is up, orange is down. And green shoots.”

However, some of the drawbacks of playing with the guitar are that he doesn’t have a reload button or a grenade button that could get him into some serious trouble in the heat of a firefight.

“If I get a kill in multiplayer I’m going to laugh,” he chuckled. “The person who dies to me deserves to be laughed at.”

As it turns out, his remark was spot on, because just a little bit later, the streamer hopped into multiplayer to partake in some TDM on the infamous Miami map.

After struggling with four deaths to his name, TheStevieP ended up getting into an extremely awkward firefight on a stairway. After missing his first few shots and taking some damage, he managed to finally land a direct hit, eliminating his opponent.

“Yo!” he jumped up with his arms raised in victory.

As he let out a hardy belly laugh, the streamer did end up falling himself, but it was perfectly fine by him, who still couldn’t believe he managed to pull off the frag.

“Let’s go!” he beamed again with glee.

The clip taking from the stream ended up being posted to Reddit where it received a whopping 3.8K upvotes by users on the platform who were impressed with the play.

Black Ops Cold War is still very young so there is no telling what else streamers and content creators will try to up the ante in the bizarre controller department. As it stands though, this was one heck of a way to kick off the entertainment.
