2 Chainz Sells $90,000 Ugly Christmas Sweater for Charity
An ostentatious, ugly sweater has contributed to something good in the world. Rapper 2 Chainz sold what he proclaimed as “The World’s Most Expensivest Ugly Christmas Sweater” for $90,000, according to Entertainment Tonight.
The sweater, now listed as sold out on 2 Chainz’s store site, was designed in collaboration with jeweler Avianne. The black sweater features 50 carats of diamonds and 250 grams of gold in the shape of Santa Clause.

Proceeds from the sale will benefit 2 Chainz’s nonprofit, T.R.U. Foundation, which supports arts education in the Atlanta, Ga., area, and assists disabled children and veterans. Last year, 2 Chainz raised $2 Million with his Dabbin’ Santa collection.
“This year, the mission is simple – to help as many people as we possibly can,” the foundation’s website says. “The new collection will act as our vehicle to bringing real assistance to people and families that are looking for a little boost this holiday season. Join our movement. Let’s aspire to inspire and bring cheer this holiday season.”
