Kendrick Lamar wore a diamond-encrusted crown of thorns to close off England's Glastonbury Festival on Sunday night (June 26). Kendrick also wears the Tiffany and Co. headgear on the cover of his Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers album. Backstage during the festival, the Compton rapper was interviewed by the YouTube channel The Unknown Vlogs about his attire. Kendrick stated he was dressed from head to toe in unannounced Louis Vuitton apparel before revealing the crown is worth a whopping $3 million.

Kendrick Lamar's crown, which has 50 thorns, was created over 10 months with 8,000 cobblestone micro pavé diamonds totaling more than 137 carats. Four craftsmen worked for almost 1,300 hours to complete the bespoke piece, which was completed in Italy. “I wear this [crown] as a representation so you’ll never forget one of the greatest prophets to ever walk the Earth,” Kendrick told the Glastonbury crowd on stage. “We gon’ continue to try our best to walk in his image.” His manager Dave Free also told British Vogue, “The crown is a godly representation of hood philosophies told from a digestible youthful lens.”

"Kendrick Lamar epitomizes the artistry, risk-taking ingenuity, and unrelenting innovation that has also distinguished Tiffany & Co. for over two centuries," said Alexandre Arnault of Tiffany & Co. We are honored and thrilled to be working with a genius like Kendrick to bring his vision for the crown to fruition."  

Kendrick Lamar's Glastonbury Festival set included songs from good kid, m.A.A.d city, To Pimp a Butterfly, DAMN., and Mr. Morale & The Big Steppers, including "United in Grief," "N95," "Count Me Out," "Silent Hill," and "Savior."
