We’re The Jewels

Humbleness is the story behind this photo. Rappers are always known for bad lyrics and diamond chains. Nappy Roots member Skinny Deville has always said “We’re The Jewels.” Meaning the group as humans make them shine in life, their humbleness help them shine on stage and in life, they do not need diamonds to do that for them.
