“This is extremely rare and only 1 sweater was made,” according to 2 Chainz’s merch website. “Proceeds of this sweater will go to charity.” 2 Chainz promoted his five-figure sweater in a tweet, in which he wrote, “$90,000 cash. 50 carats of diamonds and 250 grams of gold on the worlds most expensivest ugly Christmas sweater. http://2chainzshop.com.”
The item appears to have enticed one buyer as it is currently listed as “sold out.”
Earlier this week, the world was introduced to what was then-believed to be the most expensive holiday sweater, coming in at a whopping price of $30,000. The sweater, from Tipsy Elves, featured 24,274 individually-placed Swarovski crystals and took over a month to make.
Proceeds from the sale of the sweater will go to the T.R.U. Foundation, which puts its focus on helping veterans and disabled children, supporting arts education, and more.
"This year, the mission is simple - to help as many people as we possibly can," 2 Chainz explains on the foundation's website. "I want you, my fans, to submit stories about people you know that are in need. Whether it’s a neighbor, friend or a complete stranger, if you know they are need, please tell us their story. From there, we’ll select a few stories to donate our energy and proceeds from the new 2016 Dabbin Santa collection to."
