He bought them. lock

I mean if he did have sex he would break every rule Jehova's have regarding premarital sex so Prince is really just friends with them all anyway.

And whats the Bolded part explaining ...

Is that all your gold?
Where did it come from? What did U have 2 do? (did U have 2 do)
Can U sleep nights?
Do U dream straight up or do U dream in W's?

If its saying anything, he's implying about somebody else doing something illegal or immoral to get their gold. So what does that have to do with him having 67 Gold Bars???

You are the one making nefarious assumptions. I was being cheeky.

1. What he had to do; he had to sell himself and make that money baby!

2. Can you sleep at night? Nope, he sure didn't! He was rather well known to have played music well into the night wink

That video was truly dreadful, rent a voice, dire spelling and ESOL errors on the subtitles and shitty generic images along with distorted ones of Prince.

.

The Gold Bars are 10 ounces (313grams) which are really slivers rather than the 50 Pound(22kg) ingots shown in the clip. Investing in gold bullion was big in the 80s and plus Gold goes through ups and downs being at US$1300 an ounce now, it has varied from $350 to $3000 an ounce over the past 10 years. Much better investment than studios (Equipment dates real quick) and cars (Lose 30% once you drive them off the lot, rapid depreciation especially luxury cars). Plus they are expensive to run, a 6 Litre Bentley would take about 160 litres in its fuel tank.

It says it in the video. Also gold is $1300 an ounce, so a $13,000 gold bar must be 10 ounces.

A pound would cost about $21k and 50 pounds would cost over $1 million, Prince's gold holding was 500 ounces or 31 pounds and 4 ounces in total.

.

Also I am coin collector and know a bit about gold bullion, even though I only have a few silver rounds.

They weren't specific about how the metal was weighted.

.

Gold and Silver are weighed in Troy ounces
1 Troy ounce = 0.0685714 lb/10 oz = 0.685714 lb

.

there is room for confusion.
