Jacob Arabo (a.k.a. “Jacob the Jeweler”, born Yakov Arabov) a famed Bukharian-American Jewish jeweler who is owner and founder of Jacob & Company. He also claims fame to providing watches and other jewelry to hip hop artists, National Basketball Association players, and other celebrities. At one point if you were ballin you had to visit Jacob to “frost ya wrist up”. He was on top of the world till the feds came down on him.
The King of Bling, was sentenced in 2008 to 2½ years for lying to investigators probing money laundering by Detroit’s Black Mafia gang.
The judge cut the sentence by seven months citing Jacob’s good works for charity. Arabov, who is given shout-outs in 62 different rap songs, is scheduled for full release in September. Meanwhile, during the day he can help wife Angela run Jacob & Co. He just has to return to the “residential re-entry facility” each night. Dont worry brother you`ll be out soon and if you want to send me something for my support I don’t mind .
