“Rob the jewelry store & tell ’em make me a GRILL.”
Can you say throwback?! I can remember the middle school dance party where everyone knew this song and thought grills were the coolest thing.
But are grills still a thing?
In the hip hop/rap culture, grills can be a symbol of excellence or maybe showing how BAD A$$ you are. Rapper Paul Wall along with others wear grills to represent new money after struggling with poverty. Then you have Ke$ha who’s just rockin’ that look because she can.
And it’s not like grills are cheap either. Some of Wall’s grills cost around 30k.
Even stars like Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus and Ryan Lochte have been spotted reppin’ their grills, but then again, not sure I want to follow Miley Cyrus’s footsteps after that last photo shoot. Grills may still be a thing, but hairy armpits should not ever be. Sorry.
From Flava Flav to A$AP Rocky to Paul Wall, we’re not likely to see this trend dying anytime soon.
