Nimble Chicago rapper Brian Fresco keeps his hometown close. When he came to The FADER office in August, he carried a Ventra card used for Chicago's transportation system and a sentimental necklace that was gifted to him from his cousin. Fresco transformed the once silver military dog tags into icy accessories that also complimented his three gold rings and watch. Fresco also had two wads of cash, a blunt, and a box of band-aids for the fresh cut on his hand. Check out the items below.
