East Coast invented Grillz (Gold Teeth)
 

 
Did everyone forget that Wu Tang was rocking gold fangs in 93. Flavor Flav had a grill in 1988. The Jewlery shops in NY have been making Grillz since Pall Wall was in preschool, thats back when we used to call them "FRONTS". Yall thought we forgot? Back when I was in 7th grade (1987) if you had a MCM suit and some fronts you were the isht.

I was born and raised in Brooklyn many years before Atl came into my life!!! I didn't come to the A until I was grown. I'm happy someone else is old enough to remember and know this!!!

did NY make the conventional grill popular, yes, but did they invent grills hell no. grills have been round since 1700/1800 homie. thats how they used to mark valuable slaves, research b4 u just start talkin. yall talk like they was new in the 1980s. and who cares who made them, why is this even an issue? i see them sh*ts as a waste of money.

By "invented grills" I meant brought it to the hip hop generation. Anyone with a brain already knew this and its only a issue because the south is acting like they "invented" them. Pimp C recently said "now everybody on the east want to run out an get grills". That sh*t was played out when we stopped wearing them and it still is. On top of that they took it to far and started getting them permanently installed (filling down there real teeth). Genius!

thats not "inventing" thats makin it "popular" and even then it was only popular in that region. and if you wanna be accurate the south did invent them like i explained in the post before. how did they not when they had them 200 years before anyone you claimed rocked em had them or even was born? and the sh*t aint played out n*ggas wear em more than they ever have, so how are they played out? spinning rims are played out. wearin your clothes backwards is played out. and only a few ppl actually have taken all their teeth out like that. that the point of the grills so they dont have to knock they natural teeth out.

ok if they was used to mark slaves then obviously it wasn't started down south it was started by europeans and slave masters. And i always thought it went back further then that but who knows.

i mean its vice versa u gotta remember the south has a lot of northern people in it and the same way i grew up in bk with a lady from alabama on my block and she had gold teeth and i had people from the islands as well as from ny that had gold teeth so its really hard to pinpoint where they started ny exposed them the south made them bigger thats just what it is.

thats true but you also have to remember that grills have been around in some form since around slavery...and im sure you know like everybody else knows that alot of new york folk ancestors came from the south...everybody fled up north to escape the slavery.

but i understand what youre saying about the pin-pointing thing...cuz from what i can guess they were started overseas somewhere and then got exposed to the slaves and etc..etc.
