Southern rappers immortalized grills.
Jewlery is nothing new to hip-hop. Since the days of the B-boy and the solid gold dookie rope chains, rappers have been on a quest to out-do each other in liquefiable assets. 2002 saw Lil' Flip emerge from Houston's scene. Although his run would be short-lived, he left us with a few bling-worthy moments, and none were flashier than what he kept up in his mouth. The rapper's platinum-and diamond-encrusted mouthpiece would befit his reputation who would proclaim, "And we like to floss, all my diamonds gloss."
Flash forward to January 2013, and A$AP Rocky is keeping the Houston sound and flair alive in hip-hop. Rocky displays a love for the trill sounds of H-Town, down to his dental care. A departure from Flip's platinum and diamond grill, Rocky sported an all-gold grill set, which perfectly matched his Katie Eary T-shirt.
