HOLD UP! Hold up!!! You came for the petty king? Ok let’s get facts straight @traxnyc
1. My mom was a dress contractor for 30+ years and then she owned a small korean bakery
2. My father was a teacher and professor. Never made over $30,000 a year in his lifetime.
3. None of my parents were in the jewelry business. Period.
Ok so let me get at you doggy 😮😭😭😂🤣🤡. Bruhhh. You sold fake Rolex’s and got busted numerous times by @rolex for altering the dials of their watches. That was copyright infringement. You have sold countless people 2 carat and bigger engagement rings that were Clarity Enhanced diamonds. Yes. They had GIA papers but guess what? Clarity enhanced! For those that don’t know what that means? That’s like selling a 2018 Mercedes S class for $40,000 because it is a SALVAGED TITLE car. Bro. You talking about my dead friend Malcolm? His accountant got the grill appraised and due to my quality and level of work it was appraised for over what he paid. Cartier sells 18k gold for over $250 a gram. When you build a name you charge what you want. But when you sell 1983 Rolex Day Dates with i1 clarity cracked M colored diamonds. People will clown you. That ain’t a hustle. You selling $4 jumbos of crack for $20 and doubling up. ALWAYS REMEMBER. GOOD JEWELRY AINT CHEAP AND CHEAP JEWELRY AINT GOOD. You should have done your research first. You sound stupid af coming at me with fake news because you mad @gregyuna called you an eBay jeweler. You should be careful of my lil homie tho, he’s caught cases on 47th for smacking jewelers up. Pure facts. Act like you know. You try to come with some sad story oh I worked hard???? MOTHERFUCKER I WORKED AT BURGER KING IN EL CERRITO CALIFORNIA FOR $3.85 AN HOUR! Keep selling that low level jewelry and I’ll keep making legendary pieces. My name is Ben Baller not Ben Humble. I never sold a fake diamond in my life or a CE or HPHT Diamond. Tell your followers all that.
YANG GANG! Today’s episode of #BehindTheBaller is up! The weekend wrap up. Trying to be regular... George Lopez weed pool party. Adam Sandler shadowing me for his new movie role as a jeweler and some Forrest Gump shit and of course a lot of shit talking on episode 4 of @benballerpod available everywhere you get your podcasts.
Ben Yang > Andrew Yang
1. Name a harder minivan in the game?
2. Name someone more washed up than me.
3. Can you guess what my custom vanity license plate will say?
Big shout out to @vankulture for the parts/accessories and the vision. Shout out always to @platinum_group for executing anything I want on any vehicle. It’s #PML forever. #VanKulture#Vanning#WashedLife#DaddyGang
There is NOTHING that sounds like a natural aspirated Italian V12... and there is nobody who makes a better custom built for YOUR sports/exotic/luxury car than @gintani and they also are the premier ECU tuning company in the country.
He’s done 5 of my cars in the past 2 years and has got me the max possible gains in horsepower 💪🏼 🐎. Now my GTC4LUSSO sounds right! And it’s got 750hp to the motor (645hp to the wheels). Thanks Alex! Kormenian power! 🇦🇲🇰🇷
p.s. should I throw wheels on this bitch? It’s got suspension already 🤔
DAMN. People... Jewelers are STILL catching feelings over a list I made based on MY opinions? 🤦🏻♂️.... well Episode 3 of #BehindTheBaller “The Jewelry episode” is up now. Link in bio. Follow @benballerpod for all podcast show updates. At the end of the day, a few top dogs said I shouldn’t even have been on that list and neither should Jacob. We are above that list period. 🤷🏻♂️ Meanwhile. Jewelers stop flossing memo items and clarity enhanced big rocks. Stop DMing me and listen to my podcast. @gregyuna shared his very unbiased opinion on the climate of the game and for the record I never brought up salary/earnings because it wouldn’t be fair and then y’all would have complained even more.
Anyways. Episode 3 also contains a Nipsey tribute, a lot of OG shit and of course shit talking. Check it out and tell a friend.
Let’s discuss. The greatest jewelers of all time is defined by how big an impact you made in the game. Not how many pieces you made, but how creative and crazy your custom work is/was. Also how consistent your game is while always leveling up. Not by selling 500 iced out Cuban links or pre made diamond high end watches that were all set in China. By never being corny and buying ads on blogs. How many people outside the jewelry game recognize your work. A big jeweler could make someone famous or even more famous than they already were. I know 99% of the jewelers in the game now are out to get rich and can’t afford to take time off due to being worried about keeping up a mortgage or not being late on that Rolls Royce payment. But how many jewelers turn down $50,000-$100,000 jobs? 🤔 and lastly. How many jewelers inspired other to want to also become jewelers? I think if you can answers those questions fairly then you know who the king is. I also think if the diamond and gold game wasn’t so racist. There would be more great black jewelers out there like Chris Aire. There should be way more black jewelers for sure.
Make sure you do NOT miss this weeks #BehindTheBaller jewelry podcast with @gregyuna because we’re gonna discuss everything you need to know about diamonds and the climate of the jewelry game 💎
Episode 2 of #BehindTheBaller “The Weekend Wrap Up” is out now. •Flacko’s home! ... Going to the OC fair. Some rants about my kids school uniforms and of course Rocky’s first show since he got back. Insane times with Tyler, YG, Ferg & the Mob•

My name is Ben Baller not Ben Humble, but right about now I have to say how grateful I am for all of you out there making my podcast #1 in the business category and 🚨*EDIT* WE JUST HIT #11 🚨on the big boy charts 🙏🏼. Last night Will Ferrell promoted his new Podcast across all 3 of the major networks late night shows at the same time! Pretty much millions of dollars in marketing and I was right behind him. I am the only independent podcast in the top 20 on the big boy charts besides Joe Rogan and he’s been doing this forever. Not bad for a washed up old Asian bald fuck.
I’m shooting a video with A$AP ROCKY for the new AWGE 📀 this weekend so I’m definitely gonna do a weekend wrap up episode and drop it on Monday before we drop the BIG 💎 jewelry episode. AGAIN THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR LISTENING/SUBSCRIBING AND PLEASE TELL A FRIEND TO TELL A FRIEND. We are available across all platforms not just Apple.
@benballerpod is not playing around. I got a big k-pop homie in town. Might have him drop by the million dollar mancave. When I die bury me inside Jollibee
I legit have goosebumps as I write this... To everyone who has followed me from either my music business days or even if you just discovered me recently in the Ben Baller Did The Chain era. Just know of all my careers and hustles. THIS IS the thing I was meant to do most. Be behind a microphone talking shit. I’ve been called by many the Hip Hop Forrest Gump due to all the crazy events and stories I’ve been apart of and witnessed throughout the years from Tupac to Lil Uzi. Yes I’m still making custom chains for a minimum of $250,000 but there’s a little waiting list and yes @vvspens is moving like CRAZY. But right now I am so proud to announce that @benballerpod aka #BehindTheBaller Podcast has officially launched today. There is nothing I’ve done thus far that was built for me more than podcasting and my accolades and resume is deep. Each week I will drop some personal info about myself that you didn’t know about and speak on current events and of course talk about the latest jewelry and cars etc. This first episode I get into a little about my teenage years that 99.9% of the internet didn’t know about and why my ties to the Bay Area are so deep. I hope you like it. S/O to the Dust Brothers (@mrjordanwinter and @milesmdavis ) aka the best podcast production team ever for producing my show. Original music by @lakeyinspired and thank you @mistermorris55 for the artwork. If you like what you hear, please subscribe and tell a friend. Podcast is available everywhere you hear podcasts.

Big thank you to @michaelrapaport for inspiring me and helping me launch my own podcast. This is truly professional podcasting at its best.
For those of you who don’t have kids and follow me, once you do you’ll understand how tough it is to find a proper resort that caters to all your needs. I stayed at @hyattzivacancun because that’s where my brother in law booked his wedding. And the snob in me said “all inclusive?” All good. I’m sure it’ll be nice. And mannnnnn. Super impressed by this resort. Booked it cold via my travel agent. She added a few special incentives but once the general manager saw we were staying here, man. The VIP service was like no other 6 star resort we’ve ever experienced. Thank you to our butler @juancarlosbanales 🙏🏼 bro you are A1 24/7!
Sad to leave Cancun but we’ll be back. That Caribbean blue water 🏝. For all you parents out there. They have a kids club here. All kinds of activities and their own pool with big slides. Also baby sitting services 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼. God bless and always remember. This ain’t your practice life. So flourish anytime you can.
First off. Congratulations to my brother in law @v_insanity and his wife @mrsss.daisyyy aka Mrs Lacson on the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to in my entire life! It was an honor to be one of your groomsmen. Only you guys could get all the family and homies together for seriously the most lit vacation in history. You all know I’ve been around the world and back, from man made beach’s in Dubai to the Fiji islands to Cozumel and everywhere in the Caribbean and more. I have to say this is the sickest resort I’ve ever stayed at EVER! The @hyattzivacancun is seriously incredible. So many options and I have never been a fan of all inclusive hotels but this just something else. The food and pool and activities is beyond my expectations of a resort. The presidential suite is the nicest suite I ever stayed in and worth every single dollar. I can’t wait to come back. We haven’t left the resort and we’ve been here for 4 days. My family doesn’t wanna leave. Now back to the wedding. Have any of you ever attended a Filipino x Mexican wedding before? SMH 🤦🏻♂️😭☠️🤮😹🤣 OMG. I haven’t ever been to a Mexican resort in my life that ran out of tequila smh. My fam does NOT fuck around 😩 I had several relatives pass out. My wife blacked out. Had to be carried up to the room. My cousin had to be wheelchaired out of the reception. I had about 6 shots and then got scared and used my kids as an excuse and dipped to my suite and ordered room service by 9:50pm 🙏🏼. Again. Thank you to all my family here and thank you #HyattZivaCancun and especially to our butler Carlos. You are fucking amazing! #VivaTheLacsons
