Kanye West is not shy about letting the public know how much money he has and how he spends it. However, his most recent gifts to friends and family may surprise fans who thought they'd seen it all. MTV News reports the rap superstar has been doling out specially made recognition awards to those closest to him. The statues are gold and are in the shape of a skull.
According to the news outlet the outlandish performer gifted friend and collaborator Jay-Z with one of the custom awards for Father's Day this year after the recent birth of his daughter Blue Ivy. The skull-inspired trophy boasted 1,680 star-cut red topaz gemstones on the skulls head.
The most recent recipient of one of these statues is his new love Kim Kardashian. However, Kim's version is adorned with white sapphires and is reportedly engraved with the letters "KKW" signifying Kim Kardashian West.
Hip Hop Wired reports West got the inspiration to gift his friends with the skulls after learning the late Michael Jackson had given the same statue to his longtime friend, the late Elizabeth Taylor.
