The evolution of jeweled teeth, from ancient caves to modern- day rappers.
For more than two decades, icing out your teeth has been a mark of success synonymous with rappers and rap culture. However, what many people don’t know is that this tradition goes back way further than the birth of hip-hop, all the way back to the ancient Mayans, in fact. National Geographic has put together a little film uncovering the truth behind the grill, featuring cameos from Ashanti, Paul Wall and the Grill Master himself, Johnny Dang.
Watch the film above and check out the custom rainbow grill Johnny Dang made for Travis Scott last year.
