Last year, 2 Chainz changed the ugly sweater game when he introduced the "Dabbin Santa" sweater. According to Forbes, he winded up making a cool $2 million off the fun sweaters created with the Atlanta dance craze in mind, a fair portion of which went back to charity via his T.R.U. Foundation. This year, he continues to rule the popular holiday apparel with a whole new line of sweaters that give back to the community, including a $90,000 design being dubbed the most expensive ugly Christmas sweater EVER.
This shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the rapper is host of GQ’s Most Expensivest S**t web series, but the catch here is the exclusivity. Only one sweater was made!
The black sweater is adorned with a Santa doing the “hit dem folks” dance move. The creative idea came from 2 Chainz, but was actually hand crafted by his personal jeweler, Avianne. The sweater includes 50 carats of diamonds trimming Santa’s hat and 250 grams of gold in Santa’s belt buckle.
Major kudos goes out to 2 Chainz for giving back during the holidays, but since this s**t is expensive, ugly Christmas sweater online destination Tipsy Elves has an option with a much lower price tag for the season.

For $30,000, you can purchase this Swarovski-bedazzled sweater that features Santa riding a unicorn. This collector’s item was made with 24,274 individually placed Swarovski crystals and took 52 hours to create. $30,000 is a lot less than $90,000, no?
Or you can do like the rest of us and make your own ugly Christmas sweater. Just saying.
