The new dad and rap deity was spotted carrying an intriguing-looking boombox while walking with Beyonce and their newborn baby girl Blue Ivy Carter in St. Barts last weekend. So what was the mysterious soundsystem fit for rap royalty? The iHome iP4…
The iHome iP4 Boombox borrows the general shape and attitude of classic systems but belongs squarely in the 21st century, thanks to its subdued monotone design, modern technology like SRS TruBass DSP, a flexible iPod/iPhone dock, four-inch carbon composite woofers and one-inch tweeters, an auxiliary input jack, backlit buttons, a five-band graphic equalizer with LCD display, and a decidedly low-tech FM radio.
iHome is known as a low-cost consumer tech brand, which may seem like an odd fit for someone who’s “plankin’ on a million,” but the iP4’s cool, retro-futuristic styling is enough to catch any Roc Boy’s eye. And for the Roc girls? It also comes in pink.
The iHome iP4 is available at amazon.com for $178:
